What can I expect during my child’s first pediatric care appointment?

During your child's initial pediatric care appointment, Favia Primary Care providers will review their medical history, as well as that of the family.

They also perform an age-appropriate physical exam, noting important details about your child’s health. Depending on your child’s existing health and age, the physicians can also evaluate your child’s developmental, social, and learning skills.

If your child is sick or in pain, Favia Primary Care offers a variety of diagnostic testing services on-site, so you don’t have to travel elsewhere to get them a diagnosis. The providers can address a variety of acute and chronic illnesses. They can evaluate and treat:

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Colds and flu
  • Sore throat
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Urinary tract infections

A variety of immunizations are available on-site, including the seasonal flu shot, and other shots to protect your child from the complications of contagious diseases like tetanus, polio, and whooping cough.

What diagnostic tests are available for pediatric care?

Bloodwork and other diagnostic testing services are available on-site to monitor your child’s health and evaluate injuries.

The providers may recommend blood work during a sick visit or well-child exam if your child has diabetes or other chronic health condition to evaluate their health and ensure treatment is working.

Favia Primary Care also offers on-site rapid testing for strep, influenza, and Covid 19 testing on-site. On-site urine testing is also available. They use lung function tests (spirometry) to diagnose asthma and electrocardiogram (EKG) technology to identify underlying heart conditions.

If testing identifies underlying health issues, the providers customize a treatment plan to address it. They offer a wide range of treatment options for injuries, acute illness, and chronic disease management to keep your child healthy and thriving.
