Pediatric care is a family medicine subspecialty providing health care to children of all ages.
Your child’s pediatrician monitors their growth and development, vaccinates them against specific illnesses, and offers general health advice.
By visiting the pediatricians at Rahma Health for routine checkups and screenings, you can help your child thrive.
The Rahma Health team offers various pediatric care services, including:
A well-child exam is a routine checkup that assesses your child’s health and development. It allows you to ask questions, bring up unusual symptoms, and monitor your child’s growth.
Sick visits provide same-day treatment of illnesses like the common cold and seasonal flu. After an exam and lab testing, your child’s provider can prescribe medicines and make other personalized treatment recommendations.
Sports and school physicals
Many schools and organized sports leagues require students and athletes to undergo a physical exam before starting a new academic year or sports season. Rahma Health regularly provides sports and school physicals to school-aged children and teenagers.
Immunizations train your child’s immune system to defend against viruses and bacteria. Your child must receive vaccines from the time they’re little. Doing so builds their immunity and reduces the risk of potentially severe complications.,
Lab testing analyzes blood, urine, and saliva samples to learn more about your child’s health. Rahma Health uses lab testing to identify underlying health problems like allergies and juvenile diabetes.
Chronic disease management
Chronic disease management uses prescription medicine, healthy lifestyle changes, and counseling to help children with conditions like asthma or allergies live happier and more active lives.
These illnesses can’t be cured, but reducing their uncomfortable symptoms is possible.
