Pediatrics Q & A

What is pediatrics?

Pediatrics is the branch of medicine dedicated to the optimal physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being of infants, children, and adolescents.

Doctors who care for children and teens have four primary jobs:

  • Diagnose, help to prevent, manage, and treat health conditions
  • Teach and encourage healthy lifestyle choices
  • Handle injuries and emergencies
  • Vaccinate against preventable diseases

What conditions does a doctor trained in pediatrics treat?

As a board-certified family physician, Dr. Abalos is trained and highly-experienced in assessing, diagnosing, and treating health conditions in infants, children, and teens including those that involve:

  • Animal bites and stings
  • Colds and flu
  • Ear, nose, and throat problems
  • Exercise and nutrition
  • Fever
  • Glands and growth
  • Head, neck, and nervous system
  • Infections
  • Obesity
  • Skin rashes and other issues
  • Viruses

When your child’s complex health issue requires a specialist’s attention, she coordinates every aspect of their care ensuring everyone is working together with up-to-date medical information.

Preventive health care can detect serious health conditions when they are easier to manage and treat. Timely treatment of symptoms can prevent symptoms from worsening or turning into an emergency situation. Dr. Abalos is your trusted family doctor for all of your child’s health and wellness needs.

Is a family physician right for my child?

Choosing the right doctor for your child is an important decision. There are several benefits to seeing a family physician for your child’s pediatric medicine needs:

Convenience

Having a single doctor to treat every member of the family is incredibly convenient. It saves the time of having to visit multiple offices, track down medical records and test results, and work around different office hours and procedures.

Dr. Abalos and her team work with you to schedule your family’s well visits together whenever possible and offer same-day appointments for children who aren’t feeling their best.

Qualifications

After earning her medical degree, Dr. Abalos completed additional training in several specialties including pediatrics. She manages the health care needs of men, women, and children of every age, helping the whole family maintain optimal health and wellness.

Personal attention

Impersonal, cookie-cutter health care doesn’t address the changing needs of toddlers as they grow into school-age children and later into young adults. Dr. Abalos understands what boys and girls need from their physician throughout every stage of development.

When she treats the parents, she’s able to use the context of the family home life and health history to better address the children’s health and wellness needs.
