Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the care of children from birth through early adulthood. Next to infancy, childhood is the developmental stage that brings about the most physical, mental, and emotional change. That’s why your child needs a pediatric team that knows how to work with children of all ages.
The Health Solutions team performs a broad range of preventive pediatric services for patients during infancy, childhood, and adolescence, including:
Regular checkups give your Health Solutions doctor the opportunity to track your child’s development, ensuring that they reach the right milestones when they should. These checkups also help them identify potential health concerns, such as genetic risks for disease and early indicators of chronic conditions, like asthma or diabetes.
Health Solutions provides laboratory services, such as blood work and urinalysis, to test for illnesses like urinary tract infections (UTI), strep throat, tonsillitis, and more.
Immunization protects your child against viruses and infections while preventing the spread of disease. Health Solutions performs a comprehensive range of immunizations, or vaccinations, at its offices, including vaccines for MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), chickenpox, pneumonia, and polio.
Health Solutions performs a variety of children’s physical exams, whether your child needs a sports physical, a school physical, or a physical exam before summer camp.
Health Solutions is committed to serving your family in every event. You can call the team for:
If your child has a chronic condition like asthma, a variety of breathing treatments, such as an albuterol inhaler, can help control their breathing when needed.
The Health Solutions team understands that you can’t always plan a visit for when your child feels sick. That’s why they offer same-day sick visits if your child is coughing, wheezing, vomiting, or running a high fever.
Allergy testing can help determine if your child has allergies toward environmental factors or a food allergy. Once their doctor determines what your child is allergic to, they can recommend the right treatments to prevent an allergic reaction in the future.
The ingestion of foreign bodies, such as coins or small toys, is a common concern for many parents of young children. If your child swallows a foreign object or sticks a small object in their nose or ear, their doctor uses advanced technology to remove it.
Splinting uses a special device to immobilize or restrict motion if your child suffers a musculoskeletal injury, such as a broken finger or fractured wrist.
An abscess is a pocket of pus that can form underneath the skin. Abscesses are painful and potentially harmful to your child’s health if they rupture. To prevent damage, a Health Solutions doctor can drain your child’s abscess.
