Developmental screening is a routine, BUT VERY IMPORTANT diagnostic procedure used to identify any potential developmental delays.
Early detection is an invaluable tool in treating nearly every condition, in order to identify and end problems before they create future damage.
Developmental screenings can identify delays that can indicate autism, mental retardation and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, among others.
Screenings can be performed through simple questioning during a regular checkup to ensure that your child is progressing at a rate that is considered normal.
Developmental screenings take just a few minutes at each doctor’s visit, but can play a major role in identifying and then treating early developmental conditions.
Children with ADHD and behavior problems can cause worry and concern among parents, who are often unsure of how to treat this situation.
Behavioral consultations allow Dr. Sanjay to observe your child’s natural activity and interactions. This may include interviews with parents, teachers and other people, in order to assess behaviors and determine corrective measures.
Consultations can be performed at any age, and are most common among school-age children.
Dr. Sanjay works with you and your child in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. He will refer you to a team of Psychiatrist/Psychologists if need be.
Infants are protected from certain diseases at birth because of antibodies passed from the mother.
However, this protection is ONLY temporary.
Immunization from most diseases can be achieved through vaccination.
Vaccines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics include:
- Hepatitis B
- Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine
- Measles, mumps, rubella
- Diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis
- Hepatitis A
- Haemophilus Influenzae B
Loop Pediatrics provides these and other immunizations.
We are happy to answer any questions that you may have pertaining to vaccination and your child’s overall well being.
Pre-travel consultations with your child’s physician are a great idea.
Loop Pediatrics offers pre-travel administration of recommended vaccines and health advice for young adults and children who are planning to travel outside of the United States.
Parents will be asked to complete a questionnaire regarding travel plans that includes:
- Analysis of your itinerary, anticipated activities, and review of your child’s previous immunizations to determine if additional vaccinations are recommended.
- Advice on malaria prophylaxis and needed prescriptions and where to get the prescriptions filled.
- Information and prescriptions for medications to help prevent or treat illnesses while traveling.
Our office does not routinely carry the specialized vaccines such as yellow fever and typhoid, but they can be ordered by the office, or Dr. Mehra can write a prescription for the vaccine to be purchased at a local pharmacy and transported to our office for administration.
lternatively we can refer you to a clinic that administers these vaccines.
- Several weeks may be needed in order to complete a vaccine series
- We recommend the initial appointment be at least 4-6 weeks before your planned date of departure
