Pediatrics Q & A

What are the benefits of having a pediatrician?

Children have unique medical needs, and it’s wise to seek routine care from a qualified pediatrician, like Dr. Hoang. With routine care and well-child visits with the same medical staff, your child’s health is consistently and closely monitored as they grow and develop.

This consistent care ensures that Dr. Hoang can detect any abnormalities as early as possible, so treatment can begin quickly. Routine care also makes it easy to keep track of your child’s health services and immunizations.

In the event your child suffers a serious medical illness, such as a severe asthma attack or dehydration, or receives an injury in an accident, Dr. Hoang can admit and tend to their needs at Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital in Houston.

What pediatric services are available?

The staff at VitalCare Medical offer consistent, comprehensive care to treat acute and chronic conditions that affect children. Dr. Hoang provides a variety of in-office diagnostics and treatment options for issues like:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • High fever
  • Colds and flu
  • Ear infections
  • Dehydration

To keep your child functioning in optimal health, Dr. Hoang offers routine annual physicals. He also provides necessary physical evaluations for sports and other organized activities.

Additionally, VitalCare Medical offers necessary immunizations throughout childhood, including recommended vaccinations for those traveling out of the United States.

What can I expect during a pediatric physical?

Dr. Hoang offers routine physicals for children and often conducts them as part of the annual well-child visit.

During this appointment, Dr. Hoang reviews your child’s medical history and discusses any symptoms or concerns you have. He performs a physical examination of your child’s ears, nose, throat, and abdomen, looking for abnormalities.

Other typical parts of a well-child visit include:

  • Heart and lung check
  • Blood pressure test
  • Measurement of height and weight

Depending on your child’s health and family history, Dr. Hoang may also request blood work to screen for chronic health issues like diabetes.

If your child needs any immunizations at this time, Dr. Hoang’s staff can administer them based on your child’s age and medical history.
