Family & Children's Clinic Pa
i don't recommend this clinic to anybody. My baby had an asthma atttack. I called this office at 4pm. They told me to bring my baby in 10 min. She will let the office know if we were a little late. We got thee at 4:13pm. They said my insurance is inactive even I already paid. I said I will pay CASH for this visit until I investigate what happened to my insurance. At 4:30, The front desk Liz Rivera said manager Maria De La Garza said she was too tired to take my baby and reschedule 3 days after ( the office is not closed until 5pm). I want to ask Ms. Garza Whether my baby's asthma attack can wait the following days for you? Did you all take the ethical course when you were in school? Do you have a heart to treat a baby like that?
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.
