I think its pretty pathetic when you take your 9 yo son here and he has to have blood drawn for testing for cat scratch fever and the nurse Shayna says to my special needs son that if he does not hold still and let her take his blood he will have to go to the lab and they will HURT him because they only are used to doing adults and the needle is bigger. I explained to her that they have NEVER been able to draw blood from my sons arm and the hand at the wrist area was the best place.. She refused and of course stuck him in the arm and sat their jabbing the needle all around causing him to scream in pain and could NOT get the blood.. His arm was turning purple from having the elastic band on their for over 10 minutes. Then after repeatedly threatening him with the lab hurting him .. She tells him after she could not get blood he had to go to the lab to have it done.. What kind of nurse does that to an innocent child? I talked to Kelly the Director and she is not only condoning this nurses behavior.. She said if I file a complaint on this nurse with the Florida Board of Nursing then my son can find another Doctor elsewhere.. Is that not blackmale of sorts? So if someone has a complaint about one of their nurses they just toss your kid out the door that has been going there for 4 years... Tell me how Ethical is this? If you want to delete my comment . Sorry if you can't handle the truth. I will file the complaint and you will NOT bully me with your threats.. If you do toss my kid from your clinic you will hear from my lawyer.. No one is going to bully my son and scare him for no reason like that.. They will block you on facebook if you do not leave a 100 percent positive rating.. Not only this but they also did away with the writing a reveiw on there because people are honest about how your child is treated there.

Larue and Larue Pediatrics
Doc may run late, but it is because he takes the time to always consult in his office after exam. I know I am getting quality care & his undivided attention.
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.
