Pediatrics Q & A

What is Involved in Pediatric Care?

At Prominis Medical Services, you and your family enjoy a low-stress environment with expert and compassionate care. The doctors provide comprehensive primary care to children of all ages, from infancy to adolescence. Well-child checks are one of the cornerstones of pediatric care that ensure infants, toddlers, children, and teens are developing to their optimal physical, emotional, and mental abilities.

During routine wellness visits, the doctors offer age-appropriate evaluation and counseling for a wide range of pediatric issues. These include:

  • Normal development
  • Healthy diet and exercise
  • Sports safety
  • Adolescent behavior

Bullying and the state of the family environment may also be addressed to ensure children have the greatest possible chance at optimal health.

The doctors also ensure kids are up to date on essential immunizations that protect them from debilitating diseases, such as measles, polio, hepatitis A and B, and chickenpox.

What Screening Tests are Included in Pediatric Care?

Screening tests that allow for early detection and intervention when it comes to a host of common pediatric health conditions are also offered. Take advantage of evaluation for:

  • Hearing and vision problems
  • Childhood obesity
  • Autism
  • Anemia
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Alcohol and tobacco use
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Depression

When health problems are identified early, treatment is easier and likely more successful.

What Acute Problems are Addressed with Pediatric Care?

Prominis Medical Services can help with immediate health needs, such as the common cold, flu, and strep throat. Children encounter a full range of health challenges that require expert management, including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Burns
  • Splinters
  • Digestive ailments
  • Skin rashes and insect bites
  • Asthma attacks

The team at Prominis Medical Services is adept at attending to these common illnesses and injuries. If your child has an illness or injury outside the practice’s scope, the doctors connect you with a specialist and coordinate care. 

What Happens During a Pediatric Wellness Check?

Wellness checks occur most frequently for babies and toddlers. School-age children and adults generally come in once per year.

During a wellness check, the doctors measure your child’s height and weight. Older children have their blood pressure checked. The doctors carefully evaluate the health of your child’s eyes, ears, respiration, heart, and external genitals, too.

Your provider ensures immunizations are up to date and discusses with you any concerns you may have, especially about lifestyle factors, such as sleep, safety, diet, and exercise.
