Q & A
What is Pediatric Care?
Pediatric care is a service that focuses on taking care of the needs of young children until the age of 18. Pediatric care specialists are trained to ensure that the developmental needs of young children are covered, and to focus both on preventive care and illnesses and injuries that are common during this period.
At HG Pediatrics, we strive to provide the best pediatric care with our team of healthcare professionals that are prepared to diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses, as well as just ensuring that your child is growing healthy. Scheduling an appointment with a pediatrician is of high importance, as they can:
- Diagnose genetic and congenital conditions
- Alleviate and treat injuries and infections
- Provide treatment and follow-up on functional disabilities
- Prevent conditions with regular checkups
Every child develops at their own pace and our pediatricians are prepared to answer all of your questions. However, there are certain milestones that are expected during certain stages of their growth and development, so a healthcare professional can provide help if something isn’t working as expected.
How Often Does My Child Need Pediatric Care?
As a parent, you may wonder how often your child needs pediatric care appointments. Having an infant or toddler, your child should have frequent well-child visits to monitor their health and ensure that they are reaching the expected milestones of every stage of development.
Since your baby is born, you will need to begin the schedule of newborn pediatric care, until they are 12 months old. After this, well-child visits need to take place following a specific period of time. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recommends 7 well-child visits between the ages of 1 and 4, in the following months:
- 12 months
- 15 months
- 18 months
- 24 months
- 30 months
- 3 years
- 4 years
After four years of age, it’s recommended that children visit the pediatrician for an annual check-up.
Why is Pediatric Care So Important?
Pediatric care is important, as children’s bodies aren’t the same as adults, so their needs must be covered in a specific way. Pediatricians are trained and prepared to take care of your child’s healthcare needs, as well as to ensure that the milestones expected at every stage are reached.
As a parent, you keep learning a lot about your child as they are growing, and one way of being there for them in every aspect is by ensuring that their needs are covered. By scheduling an appointment with our professionals at HG Pediatrics, you can rest assured that your child is in good hands, and that all of your questions will be answered.
The team, led by pediatrician Homero Garza, MD, is formed by compassionate professionals who deliver knowledgeable support to parents, to raise healthy and happy kids.
