All of our services are provided by nurse practitioners. The nurse practitioner will assess your child, then provide a diagnosis and treatment plan. The nurse practitioner may prescribe medications and order labs/imaging when appropriate.
We collaborate with a physician via telecommunication when it is appropriate for the care of the child. We also refer to other healthcare providers, including physicians, when it is appropriate for the care of the child.
We evaluate and treat minor illnesses and injuries, but do not have the capability to do X-ray or imaging in an urgent time frame (ie for fracture). It is best if you suspect fracture or similar injury that you are seen at an urgent care or emergency room setting.
We do not perform stitching, but do perform skin closure using skin adhesive.
If you suspect severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis, please call 911 immediately.
It is very rare for a child to need pain medication that requires a prescription and is most likely an issue that is not treated in our practice. We do not prescribe narcotic pain medications and do not keep any at our locations sites.
A nurse practitioner (NP) is a health care provider offering patient-centered primary, acute, and specialty care. NPs are able to diagnose and treat health conditions, offer prevention education, and counsel patients on how to live a healthy lifestyle. They are able to order diagnostic testing and interpret the results, prescribe medications, and manage both acute and chronic illness.
