Kids First Pediatrics provides a number of different pediatric services. Whether it is resources on parenting, or getting your child up-to-date on vaccinations, we have your family covered. The goal of pediatric care is to cover a child’s developmental years with health education and ensure proper development. This period of pediatric care starts at birth and usually ends at 21 years of age.
Throughout this period, our pediatricians will monitor your child’s health and development with well-child visits. At every visit, please let us know if your child has been to see a specialist since your last visit, or has recently been hospitalized/ visited the Emergency Room. Keep us updated on any medications your child is taking, including over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and other supplements.
A well-child visit is the fundamental level of pediatric services. This service provides diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, and prevention of medical conditions, and assessment of the general health of your child. Well-child visits are recommended during certain points of your child’s growth and development. These visits allow our pediatricians to become familiar with your child’s health and catch any potential developmental or medical problems. The well-child visit embodies the importance of preventative medicine.
