Pediatric Care Q&A

How does preventive medicine factor into pediatric care?

Preventive medicine is a primary area of focus within pediatric care. Regardless of age, finding ways to prevent injury or illness is always the best course of action. 

Each time your child comes to Millennium Pediatrics for routine newborn care or well child visits, their pediatrician performs the screenings that align with their age, sex, and overall health. Proper screening can identify developmental concerns, signs of illness, or indications of mental or emotional distress in the earliest possible stage, when treatments are often most effective. 

As your child grows older, their pediatrician begins working directly with them to teach them how to take a proactive approach to their health. This empowers kids to make healthy choices and also develops an appreciation for health care. 

How can pediatric care help if my child is injured or ill?

Knowing where to turn for acute care needs is vital and makes a stressful situation easier to bear for both children and adults. Sick visits begin with a quick assessment of your child’s condition and a discussion of their symptoms. 

The focus is on determining the source of symptoms and beginning a treatment plan immediately. If additional testing is needed, your practitioner explains how best to keep your child comfortable as the process moves forward. 

How can I help a child who is fearful of medical visits?

Kids sometimes develop a fear of medical care in general or specific fears about the clinical setting or the steps involved in health care. These anxieties can develop after a negative experience or as a result of hearing friends and family speak negatively about health services.

If your child expresses fear or anxiety about coming to see the pediatrician, it might be helpful to bring them with you to your next physical exam. Once they see there is nothing to fear, they might begin to look forward to their own visit. 

Many great children’s books also focus on how fun it is to visit with a health professional. Find one written for your child’s age range and read it together. 

If you need to schedule a pediatric care visit, call the office to find a time that fits your schedule. Online booking is also an option and takes just a few moments.
