COVID-19 Summer Plan

COVID-19 Summer Plan

Pathway Pediatrics is taking precautionary measures to decrease the exposure and spread of COVID-19, while continuing to provide the best care to our patients. To help decrease unnecessary exposure we have implemented changes to our appointment policies and office flow. The health and well-being of our patients and families is important to us.  We continue to encourage that each patient stays up to date on their well child checkups. Regular checkups are an important way to keep track of your child’s health, physical, emotional, and social development. These visits are important for ALL children, including children and youth with special health care needs who may also be under the care of specialists. By focusing on your child’s growth and learning, both you and your health care professional make sure your child is developing as expected. Your family and health care professional form a partnership based on respect, trust, honest communication, and understanding your family’s culture and traditions.

The Benefits of Well-Child Visits:

Prevention. Your child gets scheduled immunizations to prevent illness. You can also ask your pediatrician about nutrition and safety in the home and at school.

Tracking growth and development. See how much your child has grown since your last visit and talk with your doctor about your child’s development. You can discuss your child’s milestones, social behaviors and learning.

Raising concern. Make a list of topics you want to talk about with your child’s pediatrician such as development, behavior, sleep, eating or getting along with other family members.

Team approach. Regular visits create strong, trustworthy relationships among pediatrician, parent and child. The AAP recommends well-child visits as a way for pediatricians and parents to serve the needs of children. This team approach helps develop optimal physical, mental and social health of a child.
