Dr. Shadab provides a vast array of contemporary childhood medical services at his state of the art Irvine pediatrics center. These include necessary childhood immunizations; routine baby and child check-ups; growth development and nutrition assessment; diagnosis and treatment of allergies and bronchial asthma; as well as the diagnosis and treatment of ADD, ADHS and autism.
Child ImmunizationsDr. Farrokh Shadab encourages his patients to receive child immunizations. There are a handful of vaccinations that are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. These immunizations are designed to keep children healthy at all different stages by preventing diseases such as polio, rotavirus, chicken pox, mumps, HPV, pneumococcal, rubella, hepatitis, tetanus, measles, and whooping cough. At our Irvine pediatrics center, you can expect Dr. Shadab to approach vaccinations with a gentle care in order to keep kids comfortable. Many vaccinations are required for children to go to school, especially public school, in California. It is uncommon for the babies and children who receive vaccinations at our office to experience any problems, but some can result in a minor fever or redness of the skin. Our medical team will help you determine the vaccination schedule for your child and the ways that you can keep him or her comfortable.
Regular check-ups and well-baby visits are a chance for Dr. Shadab to make sure that your child is growing and developing according to schedule. We will measure your child’s height and weight to make sure there are no sudden changes to be concerned about, and then Dr. Shadab will perform a simple exam to make sure that everything looks and sounds healthy. If your child is due for immunizations, they may take place during the check-up. This is also a good opportunity to talk to Dr. Shadab about any concerns you might have about your child’s behavior or eating or sleeping habits. You can also ask any questions that you might have. Dr. Shadab might have his own questions that he asks in order to make sure that your child’s development is on track at home. At our Irvine pediatrics center, check-ups and well-baby visits are a great way to keep on track with our focus of preventative care. It’s during these visits that Dr. Shadab can catch any problems or concerns early.
