Pediatric Care Q&A

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is a branch of medicine focused on infants, children, and teenagers. It incorporates routine checkups, preventive screenings, and immunizations to ensure your child remains healthy while achieving all of their developmental milestones.

By establishing pediatric care for your child, you can significantly reduce the risk of potentially serious health problems, including allergies and asthma.

What services does pediatric care provide?

Dr. Saylor offers a full suite of pediatric care services, including:


Immunizations teach your child’s immune system to identify and attack potentially harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. 

By getting your child immunized at an early age, you can protect them from deadly pathogens. Some of the most common childhood immunizations include the seasonal flu shot; measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR); and diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (DTaP)

Well-child exams

A well-child exam is a routine checkup that assesses your child’s physical and neurological health. Routine visits to Dr. Saylor are important as they present an opportunity to ensure your child is meeting all of their growth milestones. 

Even if your child appears healthy, they should visit their pediatrician at least once a year. Common health problems like allergies and asthma don’t always present obvious symptoms, so they may go unnoticed without professional observation.

Sick visits

If your child develops a high fever or a sore throat and they don’t respond to at-home treatments, contact Dr. Saylor right away. During a sick visit, he can pinpoint the source of your child’s discomfort and develop a treatment plan to help them feel better. 

Urgent care

If your child cuts themselves or twists an ankle while playing, urgent care can provide immediate diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Saylor can order X-rays, stitch up wounds, or apply a cast to a broken bone. 

Why is pediatric care important?

Pediatric care is important because it monitors your child’s growth and well-being. Children grow rapidly and are more susceptible to certain conditions than adults. Routine visits to Dr. Saylor can provide peace of mind and ensure your child remains healthy.
