What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is medical care specifically for children and teenagers. NugaHealth Primary Care provides comprehensive pediatric care from the time your baby’s born until they head off to college, giving you a dependable resource for exceptional care throughout your child’s formative years. 

What does pediatric care involve?

Pediatric care is complete health care. NugaHealth Primary Care provides support at every stage of your child’s life. Some of the pediatric care services available include: 

Well-child care

Well-child care consists of routine checkups to ensure your child is physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. During well-child visits, Omobolanle screens for disease, evaluates growth, and monitors all aspects of your child’s development. 

Through regular well-child care, your child can avoid many medical struggles during their childhood years, which also sets them up for a healthy adulthood. 

Well-child visits usually include vaccinations. If your child needs medication to manage a health condition, such as asthma, well-child visits include disease monitoring and any necessary prescription refills. 

Sick care

Sick care covers the flu, COVID-19, ear infections, strep throat, fevers, and all other types of illness. 

While illness is usually temporary, Omobolanle can administer treatments that relieve discomfort and speed recovery making life easier for you and your child during a very anxious time. 

Injury care

From falls on the playground to bicycle accidents, burns, sprains, and beyond, children are more likely to experience injuries than adults. 

NugaHealth Primary Care provides expert injury care to relieve your child’s pain and facilitate fast healing. 

The practice also offers sports physicals, which clear your child for athletic participation. Omobolanle understands the many differences between adult and pediatric health care, and she’s always ready to tailor medical care to your child’s needs.
