Pediatric Care Q&A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is a field of medicine that specializes in age-specific health care for children from newborn through age 21. Dr. Larson has extensive knowledge of the developmental, emotional, and physical needs of your child. 

Pediatric care includes a wide range of services that support their health and wellness for: 

  • Tracking development and growth

  • Identifying risk factors of disease
  • Preventing disease
  • Educating parent and child
  • Promoting a healthy lifestyle 
  • Treatment of acute and chronic illness
  • Building trust between the provider and parent and child

Quality pediatric care lowers your child’s risk for many common diseases. It also allows for early intervention for physical, emotional, and developmental problems that may arise throughout their childhood.
