Pediatric Care Q & A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care oversees all aspects of your child's health and well-being from birth through the age of 18-21, depending on their general medical and behavioral needs. But pediatricians take care of more than your child’s physical health.

The team at Cardinal Pediatrics also has years of experience screening for and treating developmental delays and disorders, behavioral problems, emotional challenges, and mental health disorders.

While pediatric care focuses on children and teens, pediatricians support parents too. They answer questions, make recommendations, and help parents navigate the constant intellectual, social, and emotional changes as their child grows.

What pediatric services are available?

Cardinal Pediatrics cares for the full scope of pediatric services, from sudden illnesses and minor injuries to chronic and inherited health conditions.

A few examples of the services available from the team at Cardinal Pediatrics include:

  • Infant care
  • Well-child visits
  • Adolescent care
  • Sick visits
  • Immunizations
  • Physical exams
  • Sports physicals
  • Developmental screenings
  • Vision and hearing screenings
  • Weight management
  • Mental health care
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
  • Reproductive health 

Cardinal Pediatrics provides comprehensive care for every type of acute (sudden) illness faced by children and teens, including earaches, strep throat, congestion, eye infections, and the common cold.

Does pediatric care treat chronic health conditions?

You may think of chronic health conditions as problems that affect adults. But children and teens also develop chronic problems, such as:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Developmental disabilities

Chronic health conditions are especially challenging because today’s current treatments can’t cure them. Instead, the disease must be managed to prevent it from getting worse over your child’s lifetime.

Long-term diseases uniquely affect your child's social, emotional, and cognitive development. Your child may end up missing school or be unable to join peer activities.

Your Cardinal Pediatrics provider helps you and your child by creating customized treatment plans. Your child may need to follow a special diet, take medications, or get behavioral therapy, to name a few of the possible options.

Cardinal Pediatrics provides many services, but when you need a specialist, they refer you to trusted professionals, serve as your advocate, and help to coordinate your child’s care.
