Pediatricians are doctors who specialize in treating children at every stage of development, from newborn to young adult. They work together with parents and guardians to make sure that children stay healthy and that their physical, mental, and emotional growth are on track. Through regular check-ups and occasional sick visits, a pediatrician provides preventative care, ensures important developmental milestones are reached, and can diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of diseases. Pediatricians also serve as educators, helping parents and children understand the importance of establishing healthy habits in areas such as nutrition, exercise, and sleep.
Choosing the right pediatrician for your family can be a big decision, as they will play an important role in your child’s life. At BASS Medical Group, our board-certified pediatricians offer comprehensive pediatric care to children of all ages and are committed to ensuring that each child that visits is the healthiest they can be. Their overall goal is to help parents raise healthy children, so you can rest easy knowing our doctors will be there as your partner in making sure your child is both happy and healthy.
The Role of a Pediatrician
Most children first experience doctors and the medical field through their pediatrician, meaning building a positive and trusting relationship is important. At BASS Medical Group, our doctors understand this first-hand. They work hard to provide compassionate care and strive to build lasting relationships with every family. Their offices feature kid-friendly waiting rooms and warm staff, so each child that visits feels comfortable and welcome.
They also have children themselves, and understand how important it is for parents to feel educated and supported when it comes to their child’s health. At every appointment, our pediatricians will patiently address any questions or concerns you may have. Growth and development can bring on many challenges for you and child, and they are ready to provide advice and act as a resource every step of the way.
Our experienced pediatricians offer the following services:
- Newborn care
- Wellness visits for infant and child
- Sick visits
- School, sport, or camp physicals
- Suture and staple removal
- Wart cryotherapy
While most visits will simply involve a physical exam and a discussion of your child’s health, your pediatrician might order laboratory tests and assessments if they feel a more thorough evaluation is necessary. These can include blood tests, audiometry screenings, and/or vision screenings.
For the health of their patients, our doctors vaccinate based on the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Vaccines are an important part of modern medicine, and they give the children of today a better chance at being healthier than their parents and grandparents ever were. To learn more about specific vaccines, we encourage you to make an appointment with a BASS Medical Group pediatrician or visit the CDC’s website to look at their Vaccination Information Sheets.
