What is pediatrics?
Pediatrics is medical care specifically for children. In general, pediatric care covers children from infancy through the age of 21. Because the Prestige Clinicians LLC specialists are experienced with both pediatrics and adult medicine, they care for your child through each stage of life and into adulthood.
What does pediatrics include?
Pediatric care is patient-specific, so it helps your child grow up healthy and happy. This includes several key aspects of pediatrics at Prestige Clinicians LLC, including:
The pediatric team monitors your child’s physical development, mental health, and every other aspect of health and wellness. Annual well-child exams are just as important for kids as yearly physicals for adults.
Urgent pediatric care
Pediatrics also includes urgent care for all of the varied health issues that children may encounter as they grow up. These are common examples:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Strep throat
- Ear infections
- Insect bites and stings
If your child gets sick or has any type of urgent care need, the Prestige Clinicians LLC team is ready to help.
Vaccinations are a vital part of preventive pediatric care. Children receive some vaccinations at birth, and then generally receive others throughout the first several years of life.
In addition, your child needs other vaccinations during adolescence or at other specific points in childhood. Just as with adults, children need annual flu vaccinations.
The pediatrics team at Prestige Clinicians LLC acts as primary care providers for your child, so they’re always the go-to resource for any health concerns or issues during childhood.
How can I help my child prepare for their pediatric appointments?
Prestige Clinicians LLC creates an atmosphere of calm and comfort in the office, which allows your child to receive the most effective care.
You can help by scheduling appointments after naptime (when your child is well-rested), bringing along a favorite toy for distraction, and talking about medical appointments in a positive way.
