Pediatrics Q & A

What is Pediatrics?

Pediatrics refers to a branch of medicine focused on the health and medical care of infants, children, and adolescents from birth up to the age of 18. Doctors who practice pediatric care manage the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of children at every stage of development in order to promote healthy lifestyles for a long disease-free life.

What Does Pediatrics Cover?

Pediatrics covers a wide range of conditions, illness, and more. Some of the common areas diagnosed and treated include:

  • Injuries
  • Infection
  • Genetic and congenital conditions
  • Cancers
  • Organ diseases and dysfunctions
  • Developmental delays and disorders
  • Behavioral problems
  • Functional disabilities
  • Social stresses
  • Mental disorders, including depression and anxiety orders

Developmental evaluations tell us how well a child is developing for his or her age. Your child’s test scores are compared to the average scores for children of the same age. The areas tested include:

  • Language skills – progress towards speaking and understanding speech
  • Attention
  • Social behavior
  • Thinking/problem-solving
  • Fine motor skills – eye-hand coordination
  • Gross motor skills – using large muscles for movement

How is Pediatrics Different From Adult Services?

Pediatrics is different from adult medicine in many ways. Because the bodies of infants and children are physiologically different from that of an adult treatment must be focused on the individual symptoms. Congenital defects, genetic variance, and developmental issues are of greater concern in minors than it would be for adults.

How Often Should My Child Be Seen?

Your child should maintain a consistent schedule for regular exams, beginning in infancy. These routine check-ups provide the best opportunity to observe the progress of your child’s physical and emotional growth and development.

Testimonials

It’s always the word of an experience the best advice. Here are some of them…


Amazing service!

Stingray sting. No idea what it was other than the pain, swelling and color were “not cool“ 3 hours afterward !! Went to PMH and received Fantastic Care. People oriented as you would expect, but genuinely so, Dr Alcázar and the Paramedic who saw me were insightful and acted immediately to resolve the pain, confirm no other damage or residual, and prescribe short term medication. A great, friendly and excellent place. Grateful !
