Well Child Check-up: Eastern Hills Pediatrics
wants your child to live a happy and healthy life. Regularly scheduled
check-ups help to ensure your child is growing and developing well.
We offer well check-ups, sports/ camp physicals, and family well
checks (2 children from the same family seen consecutively) during
our regular office hours. Back-to-school season is a particularly
busy time of year at our office, plan ahead and try to schedule
your check-ups early. Please bring any forms requiring a physical
exam with you to your appointment.
Immunizations: We believe in the value and efficacy
of childhood and adolescent immunizations. Eastern Hills Pediatrics
strives to immunize your child according to the recommendations
of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC. If you have
any questions about immunizations we encourage you to talk to us.
Please visit the Resource section of this website for more information
as well. We are a Vaccines for Children (VFC) provider which means
that we offer immunizations to anyone under 19 years old who is
covered by Medicaid insurance, or is uninsured, or American Indian/
Alaskan native, or underinsured.
In Office Procedures & Screenings: As part
of your child’s well exam we offer a comprehensive PediaVision
eye exam, hearing test, urinalysis, CBC, and cholesterol/ glucose
screening. More in-depth testing may require that we draw blood.
In office blood draws, including lead screens, are sent for analysis
at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (formerly ChildLab) or
you can also choose to have your labs drawn at another testing
Wart Removal: Warts are a common problem in
pediatrics often requiring a visit to the Dermatologist. In most
cases we can take care of this problem right in our office. Let
the scheduler know when you call that you would like us to assess
this problem so we can schedule sufficient time for your visit.
Child Asthma Management: We provide close monitoring
of our patients who have been diagnosed with asthma. Our participation
in the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Asthma Initiative enables
us to provide the most up-to-date care and education.
ADD/ADHD Assessment & Management: Eastern
Hills Pediatrics is a part of the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
ADHD Collaborative. Together we provide a comprehensive, evidence-based
approach to the evaluation and management of ADHD. Parent and teacher
Vanderbilt assessment forms can be downloaded here or completed
through the Patient
Portal. Contact our office if you think your
child may be exhibiting ADD or ADHD symptoms. Forms are available
for download on our Forms page
Referrals: There may come a time when your child
needs to be seen by an outside provider. In order to coordinate the
best possible care we act as the link between your child and any
specialist they may see. Children with complex behavioral health
problems are often referred to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital
division of Behavioral Medicine & Clinical Psychology or another
behavioral healthcare provider that may better suit your needs.
The Behavioral Health Resource pamphlet is also Available
New Parent Visits: We provide monthly new-parent orientation
visits with one of our providers. Meet us on a causal Friday evening session
to tour our office and learn about us. Please call ahead to schedule.
Hospital Visits: Eastern Hills Pediatrics physicians and
nurse practitioners will see new babies born at Mercy Anderson Hospital. All
of our newborns will be seen within the first 24 hours of life and each day
until they are discharged.
Breastfeeding Support: We have a certified IBCLC lactation
consultant and a lactation counselor on staff providing timely evaluation and
breastfeeding support for our nursing mothers.
Telephone Triage: We provide 24 hour phone triage services
with a registered nurse. Our staff of registered nurses are trained and ready
to answer your questions from 8am to close Monday through Saturday. After office
hours, this triage service is provided by the nurses at Team Health who have
24 hour access to our providers.
