About General Pediatrics Clinic
Children have unique health care needs. At USA Health General Pediatrics, our pediatricians keenly understand this. They bring all their experience, training and technological resources together on behalf of children.
Our pediatricians provide an exceptional level of care based on coordination with between pediatricians and specialists such as pediatric surgeons, nephrologists, endocrinologists and others. It’s possible because these physicians are all part of USA Health. We operate the largest pediatric subspecialty group in the region.
Our services are divided into a clinic for sick and same-day appointments and a continuity clinic for well-baby checks and follow-up care. Here, children can receive their routine check-ups, which include an assessment of their growth and development, a physical examination, immunizations and general patient education about childhood topics such as nutrition, sleep, behavior, safety and development. Some childhood illnesses commonly seen are colds, ear and throat infections, asthma (wheezing), eczema (skin allergies), skin rashes, seasonal allergies, eye complaints, vomiting, diarrhea and constipation.
As an academic medical center, our providers stay on top of the most current trends in pediatric care and treatment, and they are involved with continuously educating and training new pediatricians and pediatric specialists. As a result, USA Health is transforming medicine for children and families on the Gulf Coast and beyond.
The General Pediatrics clinic hours of operation are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Extended hours are available for existing patients.
