What can a pediatric clinic do for my child?

Pediatricians often work at pediatric clinics and they are specialized doctors that work with children. They provide a wide range of services to children, and youth as well as their families. Pediatricians focus on a variety of things and can do the following:

– Provide primary care
Primary care is ongoing, as it’s the work of helping sick children feel better and preventing healthy children from getting ill. Primary care includes:
Treating issues while providing education and advice
Pediatricians also ensure their patients are reaching the milestones they should, growing and developing as each child should. If the pediatrician notices any issues developing within their patient, they may seek out another healthcare professional for more specialized care.
– Investigate, examine, and manage acute and chronic illness
Many children have complex medical needs which pediatricians take care of. Of these complex medical conditions there may be long-term disabilities or conditions including cystic fibrosis, asthma, diabetes, or mental health issues.
– Promote health
Promoting staying healthy within children by providing advice on issues such as nutrition, physical activity, injury prevention, and behavior.
– Research and evaluate specific treatments to help with illnesses
Doing research will contribute to new ways of treating health issues within babies, children, and youth. Pediatricians also need to evaluate current ways to care for children and youth in general to ensure the methods being used will work.
– Work with specialists
