Pediatricians are medical doctors who have chosen to focus on the medical care of children under the age of 18. They have completed additional training and a residency focused on the specific conditions and care that the youngest members of our population need. Children can start seeing their pediatrician immediately following their birth and will continue to see them on a frequent and regular basis for their early years. Pediatricians are well-versed and familiar with the health and wellbeing of babies and will be able to perform the necessary checkups, preventative screenings, and administration of any vaccinations that the baby needs. Many parents choose to do their research on pediatricians and choose one during pregnancy so that once their baby is born, they will know who they will be taking their baby to see for any checkups or when the baby needs medical care. The sooner you take your baby to their pediatrician, the sooner the pediatrician can start getting to know you and your family, and they can start building a bond. As your child’s pediatrician is going to be their primary doctor for most of their young life, it is important that they feel comfortable with each other and start building their bond early.
We understand that children can get sick or injured, this gives parents peace of mind to know that medical care is available to them, and their child, when they need it, without having to make an expensive trip to the hospital emergency room. Our team of pediatric doctors and nurse practitioners is focused on the needs of your child and getting them back to feeling normal as quickly as possible. We also know that going to the doctor can be a scary experience for kids, and our team has the additional training to help calm and soothe your child, so they don’t see urgent care as a bad experience.
For new parents who don’t already have a pediatrician, it is recommended that they look for a pediatrician prior to their baby’s birth. This way they have their pediatrician all lined up to start doing their well-child visits as soon as the baby is born. Having your child’s pediatrician lined up prior to giving birth will also ensure that you know where you are going for any of your child’s medical needs, without having to rush at the last minute to find a doctor. Finding a pediatrician during pregnancy gives you the time to do your research to find a doctor that meets your needs, as well as do any meet and greets to help narrow down your list of potential pediatricians when you are calm and clear-headed. You can get to know the doctor a bit, and they will also get to know you so that your first visit to see them after the baby is born isn’t your first time meeting them. There are many avenues available to find a pediatrician accepting patients, including your family doctor and your OBGYN, as well as recommendations from friends and family. Suburban Healthcare Associates is available to provide pediatric care to babies through to young adults when needed. We serve patients from Naperville IL, Eola IL, Aurora IL, Oswego IL, Plainfield IL, Bolingbrook IL, Romeoville IL, Wolfs IL, and nearby areas!
