The Benefits of Having a Pediatrician

Acton Road Pediatrics is staffed with some of the finest pediatrician professionals in the Birmingham, AL, area. Our team of experts fully understands the unique challenges that parents face in raising a healthy child. If you're not sure when to visit us, here is a guide to the best times. Our team will do whatever they can to ensure that your child gets the high-quality care they deserve.

If They Get Sick

When your child develops a fever that won't go away or another illness that affects their health, come visit us right away. Our team of experts understands the unique range of diseases that often affect children and can provide child-friendly care. We'll make sure to perform a broad array of diagnostic checks that can ensure we catch as many possible health issues as possible for your child.

When a Child Needs Vaccinations

Does your child need protection against the latest diseases or other familiar childhood illnesses? Visiting us is a good idea because we can provide vaccines for things like chickenpox, hepatitis A and B, Hib, diphtheria, and tetanus. There's no reason to let your child be at risk of these diseases when safe and effective immunizations can minimize their risk of these conditions.

To Manage Developmental Issues

If you're concerned about your child's development and want a professional to check out why they aren't growing or maturing properly, call us. A pediatrician in Birmingham, AL, can help you understand what is happening, such as developmental problems or minor diseases that may impact your child's growth. We can track their development and help you maximize their potential.

Behavioral Concerns

Your child's health and maturation are not just a physical concern but an emotional and mental one. As a result, it is important to visit a professional if your child has behavioral issues. For example, if they can't seem to focus or lash out at authority figures like you, you might need a pediatric professional who can diagnose what is wrong and provide you with the help that you need to manage it.

Other Reasons to Visit Us

Call us if your child develops:

  • A fever above 100.4 Fahrenheit that won't go away
  • Fussiness or constant crying when fed milk
  • Ear infections
