Pediatric Care Q & A

First Keller Healthcare

What pediatric services are offered at First Keller Healthcare?

The providers at First Keller Healthcare are the first point of contact for nearly any condition your child is experiencing. Their pediatric services include:

  • Ear infections, eye infections, sinus problems, and colds
  • Stomach flu, diarrhea, or constipation
  • Newborn and infant care
  • Immunizations
  • Sexually transmitted infections
  • Birth control counseling

  • Complex medical problems
  • Acne
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Asthma
  • Developmental issues
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Well-child exams

Can I stay in the room during the appointment?

Yes. Staying in the room when younger children receive treatment is essential for several reasons:

  • It gives them comfort and familiarity during treatment
  • It allows you to provide the doctor with information about signs, symptoms, and medical history
  • It allows the provider to provide you with clear instructions for treatment and follow-up

In some cases, it makes more sense not to be present. That might be the case during birth control counseling, STI screening, or a sports physical.

When are antibiotics necessary?

Antibiotics are only helpful when your child has a bacterial infection that they can't fight on their own. In fact, your pediatrician rarely prescribes antibiotics for common infections that resolve on their own and never prescribe them for viral or other infections.

Please feel free to ask additional questions if you don’t understand the treatment recommended for your child.

How often should my child be seen for a well-child visit?

First Keller Healthcare follows the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations for frequency and timing of well-infant and well-child visits.

Generally speaking, visits are recommended at the following ages: newborn, three to five days, one month, two months, four months, six months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, two years, 30 months, and then once per year from age three to 21.

Do I have to be in the room when my child receives shots?

Every parent is different, just as every child is different. Some parents can't stay in the room, and the children do fine. Many parents choose to stay in the room; those children do fine, too. Only you can decide the right fit for your family.
