The Importance of Pediatric Care

Your child’s health is important, and choosing a pediatrician provides the foundation for taking care of your child’s health.

Children experience illness differently than adults. A child’s immune system is not as fully developed as that of an adult. When a child develops an illness, the symptoms can be severe. Our pediatric team at Associates in Family Practice, P.A. are experts at treating children and can help prevent and treat childhood illnesses.

What To Expect During a Pediatric Visit

During a pediatric visit, your pediatrician will perform a comprehensive physical examination and order any lab work or imaging studies necessary. Your pediatrician will also treat any illnesses or medical conditions at the visit.

Another important part of your child’s pediatric visit is making sure your child is current on immunizations. Unfortunately we are not able to offer childhood vaccines here, but your doctor can go over the recommendations for vaccines and answer any questions you might have. Vaccines protect your child's health.

  • Viruses, including a cold or flu
  • Bacterial infections, including strep throat and ear infections

How To Choose the Right Pediatric Team for Your Child

There are several factors to consider when choosing a pediatric team, including: 
  • Easy to talk with–you will have many questions as a parent, and you need a pediatrician who takes time to answer them.
  • Caring and compassionate–you want a physician you can trust and who cares about your child’s health.
  • Close to home–you need a pediatric care team who is close to your home, so you can access medical care easily and conveniently.
