Being a parent is possibly the most challenging—and yet the most rewarding—job anyone can embrace. It entails a lot of responsibilities, among which is to constantly ensure a child enjoys an optimal state of health and grows up to be a happy and successful adult.
Here at Northwoods Pediatric Center in The Woodlands and Spring, Texas, we understand the joys and challenges of parenting. We gladly work alongside parents to equip them with the knowledge and resources necessary for promoting a lifetime of health and wellness for their children. When you choose us to be your healthcare provider, you can rest assured that you are teaming up with highly credentialed, knowledgeable, and nurturing medical professionals who are genuinely invested in the health and well-being of your child.
We offer a comprehensive range of pediatric and adolescent healthcare services through which we live up to our firm commitment to providing children of all ages and their families with the highest quality of care. Let’s go over some of the services we offer here at Northwoods Pediatric Center.
Among the reasons the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) highly recommends routine well-child visits is that they serve as a way for pediatricians and parents to work collaboratively to ensure the optimal health and well-being of children.
Well-child visits also provide an opportunity for our pediatricians to catch health issues early on, before symptoms or complications set in, and for parents to ask questions and seek expert advice on a range of topics about their children’s health.
Vaccinations and Immunizations
Vaccinations are life-savers: they provide children with immunity against many communicable and life-threatening, but preventable diseases. Vaccinations, along with well-child exams, help you lay the foundation for a healthy life for your child.
We encourage you to follow the child and adolescent immunization schedule as set by the AAP. If you’re hesitant about vaccines, we will be happy to educate you about their importance and help your child catch up on whatever they’ve missed.
Despite your best efforts to keep your child from getting sick, illnesses are an avoidable part of growing up. That is why we offer sick visits, which allow us to promptly diagnose and administer appropriate treatment for acute health concerns, such as the common cold, the flu, ear infections, and gastroenteritis.
If your child experiences symptoms of any of these conditions, reach out to us, and we will let you know if an appointment with one of our pediatricians is indeed necessary. If you have an urgent medical situation, we will do what we can to accommodate you right on the day that you call us or, if necessary, refer you to the appropriate healthcare facility.
