What happens during a pediatric care appointment? 

During your child’s appointment, your provider weighs them, measures their height, and takes their vital signs. They review your child’s health history and ask questions about their growth, development, and any symptoms they might have.

During the physical exam, your provider evaluates your child’s ears, eyes, nose, throat, breathing, heartbeat, reflexes, limbs, and abdomen. Then, they can address your questions or concerns about your child’s health.

They may recommend routine vaccinations or diagnostic testing, such as nasal or throat swabs or blood, urine, breathing, and allergy tests.

Sage Medical Clinic has in-house, convenient lab services for painless, efficient blood draws and immediate results for various tests like strep and mono.
