- School & Sport Physical
Sports and School physicals help determine a child’s overall health and whether it is safe for a child to participate in certain activities by performing different tests during the physical examination.

Neonatal: High-Risk Follow-up visits (Care for premature babies)

- Kingsland Pediatrics specializes in Neonatal Follow-ups and provides comprehensive medical and developmental care that addresses the needs of premature and medically complex infants after they leave the hospital. Families will be provided with the resources they may need from infancy into early childhood.

- All circumcision appointments are done on Wednesdays. Please call to schedule an appointment. We encourage you to call a week before for availability.
ADHD Evaluation & Management
- Almost all children have times when their attention or behavior veers out of control. However, for some children, these types of behaviors are more than an occasional problem. Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have behavior problems that are so frequent and severe that they interfere with their ability to function adequately on a daily basis.
- It is often difficult, especially in young children, to be entirely certain that asthma is the diagnosis. After a careful physical examination, your pediatrician will need to ask you specific questions about your child’s health. The information you give your pediatrician will help determine if your child has asthma.
- It is important to remember that asthma is a complicated disease to diagnose, and the results of airway function testing may be normal even if your child has asthma. Also keep in mind that not all children with repeated episodes of wheezing have asthma. Some children are born with small lungs, and their air passages may get blocked by infections. As their lungs grow they no longer wheeze after an infection. This type of wheezing usually occurs in children without a family history of asthma and in children whose mothers smoked during pregnancy.
- Doctors diagnose mental disorders based on the signs and symptoms of the individual patient.
- There are no genetic tests to confirm a diagnosis of mental disorders. Because experiences and environment play an important role in the development of a mental disorder, no genetic test will ever be able to tell with absolute certainty who will and who will not develop a mental disorder.
