How to get the best medical care for children
New babies and their parents make many routine visits to the doctor’s office. After your child’s first year of life, our pediatricians may only see them once or twice a year for checkups. You can do a great deal to help make each visit a positive and productive experience.
- Do your homework. Write a list of questions and concerns that have come up since your last visit, bring copies of any school or activity forms that your doctor needs to sign and review records of your last visit so that you and your doctor are on the same page.
- Take notes. Use a notebook or a planner to keep track of your child’s health goals and your doctor’s suggestions.
- Ask questions. Make sure you understand what follow up is needed to address your child’s needs.
As your child grows, your role as a parent at doctor visits will evolve. When providing medical care for young children, our pediatricians rely on information that parents share about their child’s behavior, habits, milestones and struggles. Over time, our pediatricians will encourage your child to take greater ownership of their health. Encourage your school-age children to speak up about their physical and emotional needs in doctor visits and support them in incorporating healthy habits into their daily routines.
Why choose PSOP Kids?
In recent years, the American Academy of Pediatrics has developed the concept of a child’s medical home. A medical home is a personalized healthcare system based around your child’s needs. Our Plano pediatricians can play an important role in your child’s medical home by providing consistent healthcare and growth monitoring from infancy to young adulthood. We come to know your child and can help coordinate care when specialized healthcare is necessary.
Providing medical care for children is a privilege and responsibility, and we take great pride in doing our best to promote your child’s good health. Contact us to schedule an appointment and start building a medical home for your child with our Plano pediatricians.
