Pediatric Care Q&A
What is pediatric care?
Pediatric care covers the health needs of babies, children, and teens until they turn 18. Kids have various unique health needs that differ from the primary needs of adults, and their care needs specific consideration for their growth and development.
Be Well Medical Primary Care offers exceptional pediatric care for kids of all ages. Your child’s provider takes a holistic and naturopathic approach to maintain their health and wellness. They aim to treat or prevent the underlying causes of illnesses in children while prioritizing your child’s comfort and safety.
The kid-friendly providers at Be Well Medical Primary Care make your child feel welcome and at home when they visit. They use evidence-based therapies to promote healthy and on-track development throughout childhood and adolescence.
Which services does pediatric care include?
Be Well Medical Primary Care offers multiple services tailored to meet the needs of children in specific age groups. You can bring your child in for pediatric care services like:
Pediatric wellness visits
Pediatric wellness visits allow your child’s provider to track their growth and development. Your child’s provider performs a physical exam to look for possible health and development issues that need addressing.
Sick visits are trips you make to Be Well Medical Primary Care when your child isn’t feeling well. Their provider can treat your child using herbal supplements or botanical medicine, activity modification, and evidence-based treatments. Prescription medications are also available if necessary.
Chronic conditions don’t just affect adults. Kids can experience long-term health issues that require ongoing treatment.
Immunizations, an important preventive care, prevent specific illnesses by teaching the immune system how to fight them. Immunizations are available for diseases like polio, chickenpox, measles, and the annual active strains of the flu.
Which conditions can a pediatric care provider manage?
The pediatric providers at Be Well Medical Primary Care specialize in managing many disorders and diseases that are common in kids or affect them differently than adults. Your child’s provider can diagnose and carefully treat:
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Cold and flu
- Strep throat
- Sinus infections
- Ear infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Depression and anxiety
If you have concerns about your child’s mental or physical well-being, don’t hesitate to contact Be Well Medical Primary Care during regular pediatric wellness visits. Their provider can see them within a reasonable time frame for any health concerns that don’t require emergency care.
