Pediatric Care in Raleigh, NC
It’s our mission to offer the most comprehensive and highest-quality medical services to you and your children. From newborns through the teen years, we want to be your family’s trusted resource for the raising of happy, healthy children.
Local parents have been putting their trust in North Raleigh Pediatric Group since 2006. We’re proud of our history and our commitment to accessible, affordable pediatric health services. We offer services such as school and sports physicals, a full lab, flu vaccines, and much more. Our providers work with most local hospitals and we work with numerous insurance carriers.
The team at North Raleigh Pediatrics is focused on one thing: your children’s health. Along with our well-child and sick child visits, we offer services such as newborn circumcision and asthma treatment and management. Our asthma educator can educate kids on proper inhaler usage, perform spirometry, and, with a doctor’s assistance, create a treatment plan.
If you’re planning to circumcise your infant son, we will discuss the procedure during his first exam and perform it before you and he are discharged from the hospital. We also offer in-office circumcision services.
Our Special Hours
We realize that Raleigh families are busy, and that’s why we’re proud to offer evening well-child visits from 5 pm through 6:30 pm. Call today to request an evening appointment.
Or, if your weekdays are too busy, we also have weekend availability from 8:30 am through 12 pm on Saturdays and Sundays for only $10 extra. We encourage appointments, but walk-ins are always welcome. Contact us today to get on the schedule.
At North Raleigh Pediatric Group, we offer same-day appointments on request. However, to provide professional and timely service to all patients and their families, we would rather schedule each visit in advance. If you’re running late, simply give us a call so we can reschedule your appointment if necessary. Without 24-hour notice, we charge $35 for missed or canceled appointments.
Well-child appointments are available all year. These comprehensive visits are enough for most exams needed for college, sports, and the like. The CDC’s screening and vaccine recommendations change occasionally, so your next visit may involve different screenings, vaccines, and tests depending on gender and age.
Asthma Treatment and Symptom Management
To serve our young patients with asthma, the team at North Raleigh Pediatric Group has created a unique education program. Through this program, we’ll help patients and their parents understand the disease and manage it more confidently.
Though asthma symptoms may come and go, the disease lasts a lifetime. Patients with asthma experience frequent airway sensitivity, a persistent cough, wheezing, breathing difficulties, and chest tightness. When a child suffers from an asthma attack, it can be quite scary. Understanding the condition, recognizing its signs, knowing how to treat it, and knowing when to call the doctor is crucial.
Our pediatric asthma education visits focus on learning and include a brief symptom questionnaire. These visits may also involve breathing tests that assess your child’s lung function. You’ll receive an action plan that shows you how to manage the condition when things are going well, when an attack is imminent, and when it’s ongoing.
Unfortunately, there’s no cure for asthma. However, with medical intervention, it’s possible to manage it effectively. The team at North Raleigh Pediatric Group gives you and your child the resources and knowledge to keep asthma under control. We invite you to call our office to schedule an asthma educational visit.
ADD and ADHD Education, Treatment, and Management
Approximately five percent of school-age children have been diagnosed with ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. We use a standardized scale to determine if a young patient meets the criteria for such a diagnosis. Elementary- and middle school-aged children are assessed according to the Vanderbilt scale, and related forms are used then and in subsequent assessments. These forms must be filled by parents and at least two teachers.
High school and secondary school students are evaluated via teen assessment forms. The student, his or her parents, and a teacher will use these forms for a preliminary diagnosis and subsequent assessments. If a patient is over the age of 18, they must contact us for medication changes.
Follow-ups must be scheduled separately from annual exams. Extra time is needed to assess the young patient’s medication responses, as well as their behaviors at home, at school, and in extracurricular activities. Here, parents can learn the prerequisites for a preliminary ADD/ADHD evaluation visit:
- The initial assessment form must be completed by both parents and two teachers before being returned to us. When we receive those forms, our coordinator will contact you to schedule a first visit and a three-week medication evaluation visit (which is required for medication refill services.)
- If your child has already had an evaluation, we’ll need those records in addition to the forms mentioned above.
- If a patient is transferred to our office and is on medication already, their previous treatment records must be received before an evaluation visit will be scheduled.
After the initial visit and medication changes, our coordinator will contact you for a phone follow-up if required. For proper management of ADHD medications, we require a re-assessment every three to six months. When follow-up forms are required, please fill them out and bring them when you visit.
Lactation Educational Services
Many mothers, especially those giving birth for the first time, have problems with or questions about lactation and breastfeeding. At North Raleigh Pediatrics, our lactation consulting services will address those concerns. We believe that breastfeeding provides the foundation for a lifetime of good health, and we’ll do what we can to ensure that the process goes smoothly and healthfully for mother and baby.
We know there are numerous pediatric practices in the Raleigh area, but we hope you’ll put your trust in us. With all the services we offer, as well as same-day appointments, why would you go anywhere else? Visit our patient portal or call us today to schedule an appointment.
