Pediatric Care Q&A

What are pediatric services?

Pediatric services are any kind of medical evaluation or treatment your newborn, toddler, young child, or teen need. After all, in some cases, your child may need to be seen by a doctor sooner than your pediatrician can accommodate. Pediatric services include:

  • Sick visits
  • Urinalysis
  • Annual exams
  • X-ray imaging
  • Blood testing
  • Sports physicals
  • School physicals
  • Stitches for lacerations
  • Casting, splinting, or bracing
  • Prescription medication updates

The compassionate team of pediatric practitioners at MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center is dedicated to ensuring your little one is in good health and administering any necessary urgent or emergency treatment your child needs.

What happens during a pediatric exam?

During your child’s pediatric exam at MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center, your physician needs to know about your child’s previous health history and any current concerns you have. Your pediatric practitioner may:

  • Physically examine your child
  • Conduct a blood draw or urinalysis
  • Listen to your child’s heart and lungs
  • Check heart rhythm and blood pressure
  • Send your child to the in-house radiology department
  • Conduct a neurological test and check your little one’s reflexes
  • Evaluate your child’s height and weight and compare them to growth charts

If your child was involved in a sports injury, they may need to be screened for a concussion. The physicians at MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center are certified in ImPACT®, a computerized neurocognitive testing system used to diagnose, evaluate, and manage concussions.

Does my child need immunizations?

Possibly. Depending on your child’s age and health, as well as any specialized requirements for school or sports, they may need immunization updates. MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center proudly offers the following vaccines and immunizations:

  • Flu vaccine (including preservative-free varieties)
  • Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP)
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR)
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Chickenpox

Rest assured, no matter which type of immunization your child needs, the dedicated team at MEDHERO Advanced Urgent Care and Wellness Center helps in the most comfortable setting possible.
