Pediatric Health Assessments
It’s important to keep up with your child’s yearly physicals. When you book your initial appointment with the pediatric clinic at CCCHC Sherman Oaks, we’ll perform a general physical exam to make sure your child is in good health.
At our pediatric clinic we offer developmental assessments to observe if your child is reaching developmental milestones at the appropriate times. The sooner any divergence or delay is found, the better it is for your child, as they can begin receiving assistance for any heightened care needs. Our pediatric care team is here to help educate and refer you to specialists as needed.
We offer pediatric nutritionists that work with you and your child to maintain and/or improve your child’s health. Whether it’s disordered eating, a vitamin/nutrient deficiency, or general nutrition advice, our assessments will put you on the right path to care.
At our pediatric clinic we provide the full-range of healthcare for your child, including dental care. Dental assessments can catch early signs of decay or the possible need for various corrective measures.
Vision and Hearing Tests
Vision and hearing issues can develop in early childhood, which is why regular check ups with tests are important. Often, there are many problems which can be more easily corrected if caught early.
If you suspect your child may be experiencing hearing or vision loss, or want to get them a general checkup, reach out to us today and schedule an appointment!
Pediatric Health Testing
We have many laboratory testing capabilities, whether its general panel blood work or testing for disease. General blood work and testing is crucial to catching anything early and for maintaining your child’s best health.
If contracted in childhood, Tuberculosis can pose serious health risks and complications that may be life-altering and lifelong. Children are in a high risk group if they contract TB and this test has and remains a vital test to ensure any infection or previous infection can be caught and dealt with accordingly.
At our pediatric care clinic, we make sure that your child is up to date with the correct vaccinations, including necessary flu shots.
Diagnoses and Referral Options
If your child has been diagnosed with a disease and is in need of a specialist for treatment, we are ready and willing to provide you with a referral. While we are well-equipped, we know that there are many specialists ready to provide your child with more specific treatment and care needs.
