Pediatrics Q & A
What is pediatrics?
Pediatrics provides medical care for children of all ages, from infants to young adults. It includes preventive care, like physical exams and immunizations, as well as sick visits, urgent care, and education on the importance of good nutrition and exercise.
Establishing pediatric care for your children when they’re young is one of the easiest ways to catch potentially serious conditions early on when they respond best to treatment. What’s more, it teaches your child about the importance of routine check-ups and healthy living.
What services does pediatrics provide?
At Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic, the team offers various pediatric services, including:
A physical exam assesses your child’s physical and neurological health. It involves their provider examining their skin; checking their height, weight, and blood pressure; observing their ears, eyes, nose, and throat; and gently palpating their organs.
Depending on your child’s age and medical history, their provider might also order lab work like blood tests or urinalysis.
Sick visits treat acute illnesses like the common cold or the seasonal flu. If your child develops a fever or a cough that won’t improve, the team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic can make recommendations for treatment and help them feel better.
Immunizations teach your child’s immune system to identify harmful invaders like viruses or bacteria. Though no vaccine is 100% effective, they’re one of the easiest ways to reduce your child’s risk of potentially serious complications like hospitalization.
Lab work refers to blood tests, urinalysis, or nasal swabs. These tests involve collecting a sample of your child’s bodily fluids for analysis. Lab work can identify health problems that don’t present obvious symptoms, like high cholesterol, vitamin deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances.
Referrals to specialists
The team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic treats most acute and chronic conditions. Still, if your child requires more personalized care, they can refer you to a medical specialist in the area.
When should I establish pediatric care for my child?
If you’re currently pregnant or just had a baby, it’s the perfect time to establish care with a qualified medical provider. Following an exam and a review of your child’s medical history, the team at Walk-In Wellness Family Clinic can develop a preventive care schedule that includes immunizations and physical exams.
