Leland Pediatrics Pc
Dr. Austria is the best pediatrician I have ever experienced. She takes so much time with my daughter or son during their visit! She talks and ask questions. She remembers their name and previous visits. I have called to ask a question and Dr. Austria herself follows up with the answer or concern. I feel her knowledge of being a doctor and a mother of 3 are superb! I have received above and beyond service from the front desk and Dr. Austria. I trust her implicitly. I believe the wait is long b.c she is spending time with her patients. I dont mind waiting for her!
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.
