Advancing and Developing Childhood Milestones
Pediatric medical services include well-childcare, pediatric hearing, vision care, dental care, immunizations, routine health screenings, behavioral health, and adolescent care.
Regular doctor’s visits are especially important for children and teenagers. “It is important for children to be treated by pediatricians in an environment that is equipped to meet the needs of children. Your family’s pediatrician is an important partner in keeping your child happy and healthy, from birth through adolescence. With offices conveniently located throughout South Florida, where your family lives, works and plays, Care Resource’s pediatric services are right for you.”-Douglas Steele, Director of Medical Care Services
There are important advantages to pediatric care. As children grow, they reach certain health stages and developmental milestones around specific times. Regular checkups are recommended from infancy to age 21.
These periodic visits help ensure that everything is on track with a child’s development. It also allows medical professionals to catch any potential issues — from asthma to scoliosis — early. In some cases, early treatment can make a big difference in your child’s outcome as they age.
Care Resource’s health centers are staffed with board-certified pediatric staff that are dedicated to developing advances in pediatric care, promoting the well-being of children and families, and serving as advocates for children’s health related issues.
