Newborn Hospital Visits
Interacting with your child’s pediatrician begins before you even leave the hospital with your new little one. Dr. Farrokh Shadab, a pediatrician in Irvine, CA, ensures that his newborn patients have a good first visit in his office by making a trip to the hospital first. This gives him a chance to perform what is essentially a baby’s first check-up, which consists of making sure that the baby is adjusting to life outside the womb. The hospital visit is also an opportunity to make sure that there are no problems or struggles that need to be dealt with before the baby is ready to go home. The newborn hospital visit is one of the many benefits of making an early choice of establishing Dr. Shadab as your child’s doctor.
Check-Ups and Well-Baby Visits
Routine pediatric check-ups are an important way for parents to understand the growth of their child, as well as a way for doctors to notice any issues that may be occurring with the child. The routine check-up at the office of our pediatrician in Irvine, CA consists of a nurse getting your child’s height and weight, along with a brief medical history. This will help us determine whether or not your child is still growing normally according to his or her age, and that there have been no sudden changes to be concerned about. Afterward, Dr. Shadab will visit with the child and do a basic physical exam to make sure everything is in good working order. These exams will often be compared to past visits to make sure that your child’s development and physical health are good. This is a good time to bring any of your questions or concerns about your child to Dr. Shadab for discussion. If your child needs a vaccination, he or she might receive them at the visit. Overall, well visits are a significant aspect of our focus on preventative care.
