Health Services for Children in Baton Rouge
A child’s body undergoes some drastic changes year to year. By making
a pediatrician your child’s primary care provider, you pair your
loved one up with a doctor specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions
affecting their ever-changing anatomy. Our team takes a holistic approach
to healing by working to improve the physical, mental, and emotional well-being
of children as they grow older and encounter new challenges.
A Network of Medical Support for Your Child
Children are susceptible to all kinds of illnesses and injuries. Some of
these are as simple as a common cold or ear infection, while others may
be chronic illnesses or a mental disorder. Taking your child to a Baton
Rouge General Physicians’ pediatrician means your loved one is not
just in the hands of a single highly qualified doctor, but an entire network
of medical specialists offering comprehensive care.
Services offered by our pediatricians include:
- Adolescent and teen health care
- Annual health and wellness exams
- Newborn health care
- Injury and wound treatment
- Behavioral health
- Colds, flu, and common illness treatment
- Nutrition and exercise
One of the primary advantages of working with a pediatrician is that they
are trained in techniques to help kids feel more comfortable at the doctor’s
office. When your child is treated by a doctor they feel comfortable and
safe with, they will be more communicative about things that may be bothering
them, allowing the doctor to diagnose and treat conditions that might
have been overlooked otherwise.
