Question & Answer
Q: I am expecting a new baby. Is it important to find a pediatrician ahead of time?
A: Yes. A prenatal visit with your pediatrician is important, as it allows you to establish a relationship in advance of your baby's arrival. Together we can prepare ahead of time for unexpected or expected problems at birth and thereafter, discuss important family history, and discuss various preferences for the ongoing care of your child.
Q: My child has a fever. Should I bring her in to be seen by a pediatric doctor?
A: For infants and children older than two months, a temperature of 101.5 or higher is considered a fever. If the fever lasts more than 24 hours, is particularly high, or associated with any other concerning symptoms, your child needs to be evaluated by a physician. If your infant is under two months old and has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, you should call or see your pediatrician immediately.
Q: What pediatric services do you offer that are unique to adolescents and teenagers?
A: For adolescents and teen pediatrics, I offer a confidential interview in order to provide an opportunity to discuss sensitive topics and begin to develop a confidential relationship with the physician. Specific services include weight management, psychiatric evaluation and treatment, eating disorder evaluation and treatment, self esteem and wellness counseling, pregnancy testing, STD screening, female pelvic exams and Pap smears, and sports physicals.
