Pediatrics Q&A

What is pediatrics?

Pediatrics involves taking care of your child’s health from birth to age 18.

At Ladera Urgent Care, the team provides preventive health services and treatments for acute and chronic illnesses. They manage your child’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being at every stage of their development.

Why does my child need pediatrics?

To receive the best health care for your child, they need health-related services that include:

  • Physical exams
  • Vaccinations
  • Prescription medications, as needed
  • General health counseling

Pediatrics also allows your child to develop a relationship with their provider, creating a healthy relationship between the two in a comfortable and familiar environment. This helps your child be at ease when asked questions and allows them to communicate freely about any problems they might have.

What does pediatrics treat?

Pediatrics works to control the spread of diseases among children. It also promotes healthy lifestyles, ensuring a long life for each child.

Pediatrics diagnoses and treats many conditions among children, including:

  • Infections
  • Injuries
  • Genetic conditions
  • Congenital conditions
  • Organ dysfunctions
  • Organ diseases
  • Cancers

The Ladera Urgent Care team also helps with mental disorders, behavioral problems, developmental delays, and social stresses. They work closely with experts in the field to make sure your child receives the best care possible.

What are the benefits of pediatrics?

The Ladera Urgent Care team has an intentional approach to keeping your child healthy at every stage of life, including:

  • Infancy (birth to age 1)
  • Toddler (age 1-2)
  • Early childhood (age 3-8)

  • Adolescence (age 13-18)

The intentional focus on each growth phase gives you and your child the confidence that they are receiving the highest level of care.

Not only does your child benefit from pediatrics, but you, as the parent, do too.
