Rhodes Pediatric Clinic remains open to deliver safe care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our office is applying stringent measures to protect you and your children while ensuring your child gets needed health care. Call us today to make a sick or well visit appointment.
Has your child had a checkup in the last year? Is he or she current on vaccinations? Some parents have delayed their child’s well visit to help stop the spread of COVID-19. As communities continue to open up, it’s important your child comes in for their well visit. These checkups are essential for tracking growth and development, discussing concerns about your child’s health, and getting scheduled vaccinations to prevent illnesses like mumps and measles.
At Rhodes Pediatric Clinic, measures are in place to provide in-person care as safely as possible.
It’s important for children to get regular checkups with their health care provider. These visits are a chance to check your child's development. They are also a good time to catch or prevent problems.
