Well Child Visits or Physicals are critical to your child’s health, growth and development. These visits are a time for illness prevention and to discuss each of the important areas of your child’s development, including physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. Your pediatrician will perform a thorough physical exam, administer vaccinations, and conduct age appropriate screenings. This visit is also an excellent time to have any required school, sports, camp, or daycare forms completed.
Why are vaccines so important? Vaccines save lives and protect against long-term health consequences. They reduce disability and suffering, contribute to longer life expectancy, and help lower health disparities, and are one of the greatest successes in public health and modern medicine. The facts are simple: Vaccines are safe and are highly effective. They are supported by every major American medical society and government agency and are a routine part of pediatric care.
Illness & Injury
Your pediatrician is your first resource for illness and injuries. Fevers, asthma, sprains, cuts, bites, flu symptoms, rashes, ear infections, colds and others similar symptoms should be treated by your pediatrician. Our doctors are specifically trained in the health and welfare of infants and children up to age 19, and are ready when you need them. Same day appointments are available for most acute illnesses and injuries.
Our doctors have privileges at Parkview Hospital and see both newborns in the nursery and children admitted to the hospital. If you deliver your baby at Parkview, make sure to tell admissions or your nurse that Dr. Carroll or Dr. Hug is your baby’s pediatrician. If your child must be admitted to Kidsville at Parkview Hospital due to illness or injury, our doctors will see your child each day and manage their care until they are discharged.
We recommend that for major medical emergencies, such as life-threatening trauma, uncontrollable bleeding, severe difficulty breathing, or an open fracture that you take your child to an emergency room.
