One question many parents ask themselves is how to choose a pediatrician for your child. Here are some tips and tools you can try to make the process easier.
1. Call their office: Give the prospective pediatrician a call, ask them questions and get to know them better
2. Take an office tour: It’s nice to get to know the staff and personally see the office that you’ll be bringing your child to.
3. Look on their website: See what features their site offers and the services they provide. Many have online bill pay and other factors that could help you decide.
4. Find out what insurance they accept: This could be one of the questions you ask when you visit or call into the office and is important to know when deciding.

As a parent, one of the biggest questions is when should you call a pediatrician for your child. Here are 3 signs you can look for to determine if you should call your pediatrician.

1. When your child has a fever, even as low as 100.4 degree Fahrenheit. The pediatrician can help determine the cause of the fever and help with treatment.

2. You know your child; look for signs out of the ordinary like if their cry is more like a scream, or if they are clutching an ear or body part. If the child is still upset after being diapered and fed, then call your pediatrician.

3. If they have a cold or other respiratory problems, or their cold/congestion has lasted longer than 10 days.

At Provo Pediatrics, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Contact us today!

A question we get asked frequently is how do you know when your child has outgrown a pediatrician? This is a great question and it really depends on the child. Once a child has become an adolescent, certain things might make them feel uncomfortable. For example; visiting the same doctor as little children, or talking about adult health issues.
Your child’s pediatrician knows your child’s health history and can see the big picture. As well as knowing the right treatments for different cases. At Provo Pediatrics, we care about making this transition process painless and smooth when that time comes. Contact us to set up an appointment today!

While pediatricians care about their patients, they may not be able to create an effective long term plan of care for a child struggling with ADHD. That’s why Provo Pediatrics employs an ADHD specialist who not only treats the symptoms of ADHD, but also the cause of those symptoms. We can help you figure out what works best for your child by listening to you and your child and evaluating behavior. No two children are alike. ADHD specialists better understand the condition so they are not limited to pharmaceutical treatments that most pediatricians would prescribe. They can help you pinpoint triggers that are causing outbursts, teach you and your child different stress management techniques, and provide counseling options to help your child manage their ADHD. Contact Provo Pediatrics today to set up a consultation with our ADHD specialist.

Many people have misconceptions about what ADHD looks like in children. Oftentimes, the image of a child frantically running around the room comes to mind. This is typically an inaccurate view of what ADHD looks like in children. Instead, many children with this disorder display problems with completing school assignments or other organized activities. The may manifest as blurting out answers, being unable to sit still for even brief periods of time, rarely completing homework, and daydreaming when attention should be on a teach or assignment. Three major symptoms of ADHD are hyperactivity, impulsivity, and inattentiveness. We at Provo Pediatrics care about educating parents and children about recognizing and treating these symptoms.

You may be wondering when you should start screening your child for ADHD. While most parents don’t notice symptoms until their child begins attending school, children as young as toddler age can be screened for ADHD. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child with this condition can be diagnosed as early as age 4. Many parents may suspect that their child may have ADHD, especially if their child is hyperactive, inattentive, and stays so active that they don’t want to take naps. Even if parents see these symptoms frequently, a child must be screened by a pediatrician in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis. In many cases, the earlier the condition is diagnosed, the better. When ADHD is treated early on, your child is less likely to experience chronic frustration at school and at home.

It’s difficult to know when your child needs to see an ADHD specialist. Because ADHD is one of the most misunderstood behavioral disorders, children with ADHD can often feel misunderstood by their own families, and parents can struggle with dealing with the everyday trials. An ADHD specialist can help you and your child make sense of their behavior, but when is it time to turn to this solution? If you feel exhausted trying to manage reward systems, chore charts, and behavioral establishment techniques, then it is a good idea to see a specialist. Visiting a doctor for help might also be necessary if outbursts occur multiple times a day and if the outbursts are consistently intense. This is where Provo Pediatrics can help. Our ADHD specialist, Dr. Fuller, can help you not only administer behavioral medicine, but also help your child understand strategies to manage their behavior through counseling and other proactive techniques. Contact us today to set up an appointment with Dr. Fuller!

It’s after 5 pm and your child is sick. Usually, this is a cause for worry. However, Pediatric Care and several other local pediatricians have a doctor after hours available to see patients, including holidays and weekends. Sometimes it is our office, and sometimes it is at one of the other local pediatricians’ office. To find out which office is seeing after-hours patients that day, call our phone number after 4:45 pm. Our office will then give you the phone number of the doctor doing after hours appointments that day. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered, day and night.
