At University Pediatrics, a division of Ochsner University Hospital & Clinics, we offer the best in specialized and skilled medical care for our youngest patients — from birth until they reach adulthood. Our highly experienced team of physicians and nurses are skilled in treating a wide range of childhood illnesses and disease, all with compassion and understanding.

Why Choose University Pediatrics?

Our number one priority is children. We understand there are times when your child needs immediate attention. That's why we offer same day appointments and extended hours at many of our clinics.

University Pediatrics offers outpatient pediatric care for patients in the greater Lafayette community. If a higher level of treatment is needed, children will have direct admission to Ochsner Lafayette General Medical Center’s Pediatrics floor.

We see patients for every type of common illness, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Allergies
  • Common Cold
  • Fever
  • Earaches
  • Chest Congestion
  • Sore Throat

Onsite, we have pediatricians and pediatric specialists, as well as radiologists and radiologic technicians who are experienced in pediatric imaging, offering conscious sedation for MRI ad CT scans in-house. Our board-certified physicians treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism and other developmental/behavioral disorders and coordinate early intervention services.
