Well Child Visits

Preventive care schedule

One of the most important areas of Pediatrics is the ever changing prevention of deadly diseases and conditions. Our preventative health care goes well beyond vaccinations and office visits. We have the expertise and screening tools that help identify early potential health threatening conditions. We perform all Bright Futures, American Academy of Pediatrics and the US preventive services recommended screening and lab protocols. These are an essential part of taking care of your child. See here for more about Bright Futures. Please note: Immunizations are a scientifically proven way of protecting children from serious and life threatening communicable diseases. Our office only accepts patients that are immunized and/or working towards being fully immunized within the recommended intervals. Please read our vaccination policy here.

Each visit is with your Pediatrician. It starts with the time to take a thorough history and includes developmental surveillance and a complete physical examination. We always want to hear parents’ and patients’ concerns. All aspects of a patient and their family plays an impact on the health of the child or adolescent.

Medical conditions

When to go to the Emergency Room

As your children’s medical home, we want to make sure you get the right care at the right place. Going to the Emergency Department at the hospital for a strep throat can cost as much as $1500, usually with a very costly co-pay or deductible. The same condition can be treated in our office for less than $100, with your out of pocket cost usually not more than $30.

There are times when you know you have an emergency and the hospital emergency department is the only play to go. The kinds of problems that may need emergency care include:

  • Severe and persistent abdominal pain
  • Trauma with broken bones or bleeding that will not stop
  • Concussions with loss of consciousness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sever drowsiness, difficulty waking up or confusion
  • Severe headache
  • Stiff neck with fever and headache\Suspected poisoning or drug overdose
  • Vomiting that will not stop
  • Animal bites

After hours, when the office is closed, we feel an urgent care center is the first choice when your child is ill and needs to be evaluated. Remember a pediatrician is on call when the office is closed to help you decide how to best care for your sick child.

Most pediatric illness is not an emergency and can be seen the next day in the office. If you are not sure, page the pediatrician on call at 1-808-363-2057. This is a digital pager and you must enter the entire number including the area code. If your child is ill, the pediatrician will need to know your child’s name, age, temperature and recent weight, in addition to information about the illness. Our website also has information about common pediatric illness with care plans to help.
