Daniela Morcos DR Gannon MD
Our family adores Dr. Gannon. She happened to be The doctor on call at Enloe the day my son was born and we have been with her ever since. She treats us like we're part of her family she has given my son the most attentive care all of his life. She is the sort of doctor that really goes the extra mile to help you solve whatever problem you may be having with your child's health. Another thing that I really appreciated is that when my son was ill after hours the other doctors on call were always very helpful rather than just telling us to go to prompt care.
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.
