General Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Clinic
Our General Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Outpatient Clinic provides assessment, diagnosis, treatment and care coordination to children and teenagers with complex conditions that require several types of specialists or conditions that are hard to diagnose.
Mayo Clinic uses a team approach — including board-certified pediatricians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and clinical assistants — to deliver the most personalized, effective treatment for your child in a family-friendly environment.
Our outpatient practice offers a multispecialty, comprehensive and coordinated approach to patient evaluation and care. Areas of expertise include:
- CompACT (Complex Assessment, Coordination and Transition). This clinic focuses on improving outcomes, safety and service for patients with complex health conditions that are managed by several subspecialists.
- Pediatric Diagnostic and Referral Clinic. This clinic is designed for patients with undifferentiated symptoms. Providers work closely with specialists and subspecialists to arrange and coordinate the diagnostic evaluation, including necessary tests and subspecialty consultations.
- Autonomic Dysfunction and POTS Clinic. This clinic provides a unique, comprehensive and specialized approach for teenagers who are experiencing dysfunction in involuntary body functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure and digestion (autonomic dysfunction), or chronic fatigue and other symptoms that may indicate postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), a condition that often remains undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, can make your teen feel sick and rundown. Signs and symptoms often include rapid heartbeat after standing, dizziness, nausea and constant fatigue, among others. Watch these videos to learn more about POTS.
