Nutrition CounselingChildren who are overweight or underweight or who have special diet needs may benefit from a session with our nutrition and fitness counselor. We provide healthy recipes and creative strategies to get the whole family on board with a healthy lifestyle.
Sick VisitsGerms happen! We understand how hard it can be to have a sick child. Whenever possible, one of our providers will see your child the same day you call for sick or urgent visits. We also have nurses on staff to... answer phone call questions and guide your decision whether to bring your child in to the office. Additionally, for urgent matters that cannot wait until regular business hours, we have after hours phone services by our providers and nurses in their homes via our regular phone number 618-993-0404.
School and Sports PhysicalsChildren need a physical for Pre-K, Kindergarten, 6th and 9th grades, and any time they switch schools or play sports. We recommended scheduling these as soon as possible to avoid the late summer rush!
Well Child VisitsWell child checks are an important way for us to get to know you and your child during infancy and yearly thereafter. During the well visit we will do a comprehensive physical exam, discuss normal growth and... development, milestones, health and safety, and preventative health. We will encourage and offer all routine vaccines at your visit which we consider a safe and effective way to prevent serious illness and death. We also monitor your child's progress on growth charts and developmental screenings to ensure they are staying on track.
Ear PiercingWe offer ear piercing for girls at or after the age of 2 months of age and first set of routine vaccinations. We have simple gold style studs which are available including piercing service for $25 out of pocket cost.
Lactation CounselingBreastfeeding is an important component of an infant's nutritional health and bonding after birth. Breastfeeding is natural, but not always easy. Our lactation counselors are here to help mothers establish a successful... feeding routine. By providing support and guidance right from the start, we can help you avoid common problems and enjoy a positive breastfeeding experience.
Fluoride TreatmentsDental health is often overlooked by parents and even medical providers. At Pediatric Group we understand that dental care should start at or before the eruption of the first baby tooth. We will advise you how to best care... for your child's teeth at each stage and will offer fluoride treatments as recommended during well visits. Fluoride is a quick and painless way to help protect your baby's teeth from cavities and decay. For more information regarding fluoride treatments, click here.
