What happens during pediatric visits?

When your child arrives at Seby Medical Center for a pediatric appointment, a member of the clinical staff assesses their weight and height (and head circumference in babies) to monitor their growth. They also check your child’s temperature, pulse, and blood pressure.

Your Seby Medical Center provider discusses your child’s personal and family medical history. They inquire about their lifestyle, symptoms, medications, behavior, and developmental milestones. They may offer vision and hearing screenings if appropriate for your child’s age.

They perform a physical examination to check your child’s eyes, ears, throat, breathing, heartbeat, and reflexes. Depending on the reason for your visit, your child may have a urine test or a nasal or throat swab. If needed, your doctor may order blood tests, asthma or allergy testing, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

Which pediatric treatments are available?

If your child has an illness, your pediatric specialist may recommend lifestyle changes, at-home treatments, medications, or dietary supplements. If they have a wound or minor burn, the doctor may do stitches or treat the burn. 

Providers can refer your child to specialists as needed for physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or other specialty services. 

Seby Medical Center providers offer immunizations, asthma treatments, and prescriptions for medications, if needed. They personalize pediatric treatments to match your child’s specific needs.
