Trust your child’s health to experienced, advanced & complete health care

Nothing is more important to us than our children. They are our legacy, our future and our most precious resource. For these and many other reasons, the health of our children is of paramount importance.

At the same time, children’s health needs are wide-ranging, encompassing their physical, mental-emotional and social well-being… from infancy through adolescence.

At Rapha Primary Care Center, we share your concern for the health of your child, and it shows in the importance we place on excellent pediatric care. With physicians who specialize in internal and family medicine, we understand kids’ health care needs. And we are experienced in caring for children and giving them (and their parents) the unwavering focus and heartfelt compassion that are necessary in their care.

In addition to school sports physicals, we treat the full spectrum of childhood health problems, including:

  • Allergies & asthma 
  • Childhood obesity 
  • Colds & flu
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye) 
  • Depression & mood swings
  • Digestive disorders 
  • Ear infections 
  • Stomach problems
  • Headaches
  • Sore throat

All children should have regular medical checkups.

The American Academy of Pediatrics advises that babies should have checkups at two weeks, two months, four months, six months, nine months, 12 months, 15 months and 18 months. After that, children should be checked once a year until age 21.

In addition to regular checkups, school-aged children should receive medical attention for common health problems like colds, stomach trouble, ear infections, sore throat, pink eyeringworm and rashes.

You should also seek medical attention for your child if he or she experiences:

  • Significant weight gain or loss
  • Rashes or skin infections
  • Sleep problems
  • Behavioral changes 
  • Breathing problems
  • Fever higher than 102 
  • Frequent sore throats

If your child has any of the symptoms or problems listed above, talk to us about the latest and most effective treatments.

Our physicians are experienced with a complete array of capabilities and a multidisciplinary approach to keeping kids healthy and happy. Plus, with children of our own, we genuinely care about your child’s health. Call us today at 910-864-HELP (4357) or fill out our online Request an Appointment form.
