Well-Child Care Pediatric Visits

Do not wait until your child is sick to see a doctor. Regularly scheduled well-child visits will be the key to keeping your child and adolescent healthy. Well-child visits could also lead to early detection of more serious conditions.

A regular visit with your pediatrician for preventive care services can include immunizations and vaccinations, as well as assessments and developmental screenings. Developmental milestones, nutrition, safety and your child’s emotional well-being are discussed at each visit. Well-child care visits are an opportunity for parents to discuss issues relevant to the child’s overall health and wellbeing, including social concerns, emotional health, sleeping and eating patterns, and academic success.

The Benefits of Well-Child Visits

  • Prevention
  • Tracking Growth and Development
  • Raising Concerns
  • Team Approach

 

 

Committed to Providing Excellent Care for Your Child’s Well-Being.

HopeHealth Pediatricians consider the developmental and social aspects of health that impact your child. Our pediatrics team will customize a care plan for your child, including connecting your family with resources available in the community.

Pediatric Care Services

At HopeHealth Pediatrics, our board-certified pediatricians serve newborns, children, adolescents, and young adults. No matter how complex the symptom may be, HopeHealth Pediatrics is experienced and equipped to manage every child’s care.

 

Well-Child Care

HopeHealth Pediatrics offers well-child care to ensure your child receives routine preventive exams,  remains up-to-date on all of their vaccinations, and allows you and the provider a chance to address any concerns about your child’s development and behavior.

Newborn Care

Newborn care is generally provided by pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners. Typically, once discharged from the hospital, a well newborn should follow up with their primary care provider within the first week of being home. Based on the age of the infant as well as the progress of feedings and weight gain, additional visits may be needed before the infant turns one month old. Once growing well and eating well, as long as the family is doing well with adapting to having a new baby at home, the baby will return for a one-month visit. We have the best newborn care pediatricians and nurse practitioners in Florence, SC and Manning, SC.

At the first visits with your baby’s provider, you should expect that he or she will be weighed and his or her length, as well as head circumference, will be measured by a nurse or medical assistant. This allows your baby’s provider to track and follow his or her growth. The infant will usually receive a full examination by his or her provider. Important things discussed will be feedings, including what type of feeding your baby is receiving. Specifically, if your baby is on formula, his or her provider would want to know what type of formula.

If your baby is breastfeeding, important things to discuss would be how often your baby is feeding, if you are pumping breast milk at all, and any difficulties or concerns you have with breastfeeding. How often your baby is having wet and dirty diapers is very important to discuss, as this gives his or her provider more information regarding how much he or she is eating, and if he or she is tolerating their formula or breast milk feedings.

What To Bring To Your Baby’s First Visit

Good things to bring to your baby’s first visit would include any information on your baby that you were given at his or her hospital discharge, including any medications or immunizations given to your baby. If you had any health problems during delivery or during pregnancy, that is also something important to discuss with your baby’s provider during the first visits.

We enjoy watching your baby grow, and we also enjoy watching you learn to care for your baby and become educated about what is best for your baby as he or she grows.

Our Passion for Newborn Care

We as pediatric providers have a passion for newborn care. We follow recommendations provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics on developmental milestones expected for infants as they grow as well as recommended screening tools to complete at certain well visits. The ultimate goal of newborn care in the primary care setting is to closely monitor for any concerns with a new baby’s health as well as to help enable parents and families to take care of their new baby to the best of their ability.

Physicals

Our HopeHealth Pediatric and Adolescent centers in Florence and Manning offer medical history and physical exams for children who are looking to participate in organized sports. School and sports physicals are an important tool in identifying conditions that might affect a child’s performance and level of participation in sports and other types of physical activity. Physical exams help determine if a child is immunized, if there is a history of asthma, if a child heat illnesses, if the child is using alcohol, drugs, or some form of performance enhancing drugs, and if the child has a history of dizziness or fainting.
