Pediatrics

What is pediatrics?

Pediatrics at Allied Healthcare Physicians includes evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of common conditions kids of all ages may experience. 

Pediatrics services include sick visits, wellness checkups, wound and injury care, health education, vaccinations, specialist referrals, and much more.

Why might my child need pediatrics services?

Common reasons your child may need pediatrics care include:

  • Illnesses
  • Injuries
  • Chronic diseases
  • Infections 
  • Mental health problems
  • Problems with growth and development
  • High fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • New or unusual symptoms

Allied Healthcare Physicians specialists are here for you and your child any time of the day. They offer same-day sick visits when needed to ensure quality care and help your child feel better quickly.

What happens during pediatrics visits?

During your child’s appointment at Allied Healthcare Physicians, friendly staff members greet them and assess their height, weight, temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs as needed. In babies, they evaluate head circumference.

Providers check your child’s throat, eyes, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, abdomen, and more during a physical examination. They discuss symptoms, family history of disease, past diagnoses, and your child’s medical history.

The team at Allied Healthcare Physicians may recommend your child undergo a nasal or throat swab, urine test, blood tests, asthma or allergy testing, X-rays, or other imaging procedures if they show signs of a health problem or are at risk of developing one.

Does my child need treatment?

If your child is healthy, they often don’t require treatment, though you can opt for vaccinations if desired. Your child may need treatment if they have a medical issue. Allied Healthcare Physicians professionals offer some of the following treatments for kids:

  • Lifestyle change counseling
  • Dietary supplements
  • Over-the-counter medicines
  • Prescription medications
  • Injections
  • Inhalers
  • Physical therapy
  • Fracture and wound care
  • Vaccinations
  • Counseling
  • Specialist referrals

Allied Healthcare Physicians providers can refer your child to a specialist for complex medical problems if needed. They follow up routinely to ensure children stay as healthy as possible with a low risk of serious medical problems.
