One of the unpleasant parts of childhood is developing a strong immune system. And this, unfortunately, means that children get sick when they encounter new germs. There’s a full range of illnesses considered “childhood illnesses” and High Desert Pediatrics is able to diagnose and treat a full range of illnesses.
Treating Childhood Illnesses Immediately
Common colds, the flu, bronchitis—there are dozens of illnesses that children seem to get regularly. And while immunizations can and do prevent potentially dangerous diseases like measles or mumps, there’s always the possibility of chicken pox or infections.
When your child is running a high fever, vomiting, suffering from ear or eye infections or other illnesses, there’s no reason for them to wait for care. High Desert Pediatrics offers same-day appointments for children with acute symptoms. Even if your child hasn’t been seen by our board-certified pediatricians before, you can call and make an appointment to have your child’s illness treated.
Preventing Childhood Illnesses
No parent wants their child to be sick, but when it does happen, knowing exactly who to take your child to makes everything much less stressful. High Desert Pediatrics provides individualized care for every child. We focus on getting to know your family, your lifestyle and your child to ensure we can give the best possible health care available.
