ALASKA CENTER FOR PEDIATRICS: Early Childhood

UPDATED: July 20, 2021

We are pleased to offer you the expertise of our specially trained pediatric staff. To ensure that your child is receiving the best care we encourage to follow our tips for good health care below. In return for your involvement and communication, we promise to do our best. We believe the result will be better care and a stronger relationship!

Choose one of our pediatricians or nurse practitioners as your child’s primary health care provider (PCP). When your child’s provider is unavailable we will arrange an appointment with another provider on your PCP's team. A consistent provider and their respective team improves continuity, communication, and care.
Follow the Well Child Schedule for physicals and immunizations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. At these visits we assess growth, development, nutritional status, safety risks, and screen for illness. It is a great time to ask questions.
Share all information with us regarding your child’s health even if you think it embarrassing, too personal or unimportant. Let us know if your child is seeing other health professionals and/or is receiving treatment not prescribed by us. An accurate assessment requires the “whole picture”.
Follow the recommended treatment plan and report any problems. Please let us know if you are confused about a treatment or prescription or if your child’s condition worsens.
Realize that any treatment (vitamins, herbs, prescription drugs, alternative medications, over-the-counter medications, chiropractic adjustments, etc.) has potential risks and benefits. The best treatment is safe and effective. Sometime this means no treatment at all, just cautious observation and rest.
Tell us when something is troubling you, whether it’s that the front door is difficult to open, that one of us was short-tempered with you, or that the prescription doesn’t seem to be working. If we know when you’re unhappy or not fully satisfied, we can more easily fix the situation.
