Pediatric Care Q&A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care focuses on the health and well-being of children from before birth to young adulthood. It gives children and their families support through infancy, early childhood, and adolescence, safeguarding their physical, psychosocial, developmental, and mental health.

What conditions can my pediatric care provider treat?

Irving Coppell Primary Care Doctors provide medical services for your children’s everyday health problems, including:

  • Colds, coughs, sore throat, and flu
  • Dehydration
  • Ear pain and infections
  • Fever
  • Insect bites
  • Minor burns and cuts
  • Skin rashes
  • Sports injuries
  • Vomiting and diarrhea

The Irving Coppell Primary Care Doctors team also offers ongoing support for children with chronic diseases like asthma and allergies.

What other pediatric care services are available?

An essential aspect of pediatric care is preventive medicine, which helps your child avoid getting sick. This type of pediatric care begins at an early age, with routine checkups where your provider weighs and measures your baby to chart their growth and development.

At these regular appointments, your child receives immunizations that protect them from disease throughout their life. Your provider can also help with dietary advice and information to ensure your child gets all the nutrition they need.

If your child has weight problems, the Irving Coppell Primary Care Doctors team offers advice and support to help them reach a healthier weight. They can also help with difficulties children face in adolescence, such as menstruation issues and acne.

Your child’s mental and developmental health is equally important. Their pediatrician helps them with common problems like depression and anxiety, behavioral disorders like ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and eating disorders like anorexia and bulimia.

Why should I choose a family practice for my child’s pediatric care?

When it comes to pediatric care, the main advantage of choosing a family practice like Irving Coppell Primary Care Doctors is the continuity of care your child receives.

The team gets to know you and your family well, which helps optimize your child’s care. From your child’s point of view, it’s less scary seeing someone they know in familiar surroundings. If your child ever has a condition that requires specialized pediatric care, your provider can refer you to an appropriate service and offer ongoing support.
