Why does my child need to see a pediatrician?
It’s beneficial for your child to see a pediatrician because pediatricians receive specialized training to care for children and the medical conditions specific to childhood. We provide comprehensive care that focuses on total wellness for patients from birth until age 21. Our physicians also stay up-to-date with the latest expertise of the American Academy of Pediatrics, so you can be confident your child gets the best care possible.
When should my child stop seeing the pediatrician?
Our physicians are highly trained in the medical conditions of newborns, infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and young adults. So when your child reaches the age of 21, we will assist with making a smooth transition to a primary care provider who can best treat them as adults.
Will my child see her primary doctor at all visits?
You can always schedule appointments with your primary physicians. However, if your child is sick and needs to be seen quickly, sick visits are usually scheduled with the HealthPark physician who has the next available appointment time.
I am having a baby and would like to have one of your doctors as a pediatrician. Do I need to schedule a prenatal visit?
