Why choose a Pediatric Provider?
Pediatric Primary Care Providers are trained to…
Help you determine healthy lifestyles for your child and useful ways to role model your choices.
Offer advice to prevent illness and injuries.
Provide early and appropriate care of acute illness to prevent its progression.
Treat life-threatening childhood conditions requiring intensive care.
Guide you in anticipating your child's needs from newborn to 18 years of age.
As part of their extensive training, pediatric primary care providers are experienced in the physical, emotional, and social development of children. Children may be too young or shy to talk so pediatric providers understand the importance of listening carefully to your child, and to you. They answer your questions, helping you to understand and promote your child's healthy development. Pediatric providers also address issues affecting a child’s family and home environment.
Pediatric Providers understand that children are not simply small adults.
They often present different symptoms from adults. They may need different prescriptions or treatments than adults. Pediatric Providers are specially trained to recognize the importance of these differences, especially with young children and newborns.
