Doctor’s Appointments for Children
Many kids can be apprehensive to go to the doctor, but at Pulse Medical, we do our best to make your children feel comfortable and safe in our doctor’s office. Our GP’s are well-versed in treating childhood illnesses in all ages from infants right up to teenagers, so whether it be a sniffly nose, an aching belly or something more serious, don’t hesitate to bring your child along to our clinic for a doctor’s appointment.
Our doctors are full of helpful advice on all areas of kid’s health such as the best ways to look after a sick child, what measures to take to help prevent a range of childhood illnesses and more. And because we’re a bulk billing medical clinic, you can receive this advice and diagnosis for your child at no cost to you.
Childhood Immunisations & Vaccines
Keeping up with childhood vaccinations is a must to make sure your children are protected against serious infections at every age. Come along to our clinic to make sure your child’s immunisation schedule is up to date. The immunisation schedule outlines the vaccines needed and the age that each vaccine should be given.
Along with the threat of exposure to easily preventable diseases, children must stay up to date with their vaccines otherwise government payments to parents may be cut off and admittance to childcare centres may be refused due to the government’s no jab, no pay initiative.
We also know how tough it can be to get your child to our clinic for a jab and to calm their nerves. That’s why we always try to make the process as quick and painless as possible.
Children’s Developmental Assessment
We would all like to give our children the best possible chance in life and want to ensure they are developing well, which is why Pulse Medical offers developmental assessments for children of all ages.
If you have any concerns about your child’s development, make a booking with one of our GP’s for a children’s developmental assessment. Even if there are no obvious concerns, it is often worthwhile to bring your child in for a check-up at key milestones to ensure their development is up to standard with their peers. If any developmental concerns do arise, goals will be set to support the best possible outcome.
Children’s Learning & Behavioural Issues
Although any child can experience learning or behavioural difficulties at some point throughout their childhood, for some children, these problems are more challenging and much harder to overcome.
Our medical practitioners can provide professional advice and solutions to overcome a range of learning and behavioural issues in children. Whether the cause of concern is temporary stressors or a more enduring disorder, a variety of treatment options are available such as cognitive behaviour therapy, parent management training, medication as well as a variety of other treatment options to suit the diagnosis.
The most common conditions and disorders connected to behavioural issues include anxiety, ADHD, autism and bipolar, just to name a few. Our GP’s have the knowledge and experience to diagnose and help treat all of these conditions as well as offer advice on handling common behavioural issues such as tantrums, manipulation and repeated defiance towards those in authority.
If you think your child may have ADHD, is struggling in school or is experiencing behavioural issues, see your friendly doctor at Pulse Medical for a consultation.
