Do your children see a pediatrician, a doctor who specializes in the care of infants, children, and teenagers? Children's doctors, like the pediatricians at 7 Days Pediatrics, offer services and treatments that help your kids stay healthy. They offer several offices in the  South Plainfield and Edison, NJ, area for your convenience.

Pediatricians understand the unique healthcare needs of children

Children's doctors receive extensive training in the physical, behavioral, and mental health issues that can occur throughout childhood. They not only diagnose and treat common childhood illnesses, such as ear infections and viruses but also monitor your child's growth and development.

Although it's true that every child may have a slightly different developmental timeline, lifelong issues may occur if developmental or growth issues aren't treated promptly. Fortunately, your child's doctor can diagnose problems and recommend treatments or early interventions that will improve your child's physical or mental health.

During visits, your child's doctor offers age-appropriate explanations of illnesses and treatments. Your child's comfort during visits is particularly important. When you visit a pediatrics office in the South Plainfield, or Edison NJ area, you'll find a warm, welcoming environment and a staff that understands that a visit to the doctor can be a little overwhelming for kids.

Children's doctors offer vaccines that help your child avoid childhood illnesses

Vaccinations prevent your child from developing illnesses that can cause discomfort, pain, severe complications, or even death in some cases. When you vaccinate your child, you'll also help protect children who are too young to receive vaccines yet or can't be vaccinated due to health issues. Your child's pediatrician offers vaccinations for many common childhood illnesses, including whooping cough, measles, mumps, rotavirus, polio, influenza, meningitis, hepatitis, and tetanus.

Your child's pediatrician also offers help for behavioral or mental health issues

Children's doctors also see children who have special issues. If your child suffers from anxiety, depression, eating disorders, or other problems, the doctor can offer suggestions and medications and make referrals to other professionals if needed. Your child's doctor can also help you set up testing to determine if your child has autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or other disorders.
