My daughter has been a patient since the day she was born in 1996 and I couldn't be more happier with all of the doctors and the courteous staff. My daughter is a only child, so when I was looking to find a pediatrician, I litterally called Drs. offices to ask questions to get some basic info and every single office had said Lady we are a drs. office what more do you need to know and rudely hung up. LVPeds did not. The nurse I talked to, was more than happy to give me a few mins. to answer my basic questions about hrs, how many drs. were in practice (5) at the time. and stuff. The biggest question at that time for me was if drs. were avail during middle of the night (remember when my daughter was born they had answering services and the dr. called right back in emergency) My daughter was born w/ several medical problems. so in the end, I was grateful for that nurse I talked to that day and my choice for LVPEDS.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
