Well Checks:
The purpose of the well child visit is to help children and teens grow into healthy adults. Even when your child is well, be sure to bring them in for these check ups. These medical exams should start when a child is a few days old and continue until he or she is 21.

Extended Care Clinic:
The extended care clinic offers acute care beyond routine clinic hours. The extended care clinic accepts walk-in and scheduled visits. The hours will be posted on the door and messaged on the clinic phone answer service. It will be open on two work day evenings and every other Saturday morning. This clinic is available to accommodate your busy work schedules.

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.  We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child’s next visit.

Sick Care:

Chronic Care:
Chronic care is care is care of an illness that persists beyond three weeks. Bright Star Pediatric and Adolescent Center utilizes Specialists and the referral system and individualized plans of care. This approach ensures the total care of the child’s health care needs.

Welcome to the Teen Center:
The Teen Center is exclusively for adolescents ages 13-21. Here, our physicians and staff focus on the unique needs of adolescents. Teens do still need annual well exams. These checkups are important to ensure proper physical growth, maintain immunizations, and address common concerns such as acne, weight issues and sexuality. The well appointment also serves as an opportunity to address difficult issues that are common for this age group. Often, teens struggle with issues of self-esteem, peer pressure, stress and depression. Additionally, many face choices about drinking, smoking, drugs and sexual activity. The decisions and choices made during adolescence can impact a child for a lifetime.

Teenage years can be tough. We are here to help. Teen years are a good time to begin learning about healthcare. We believe teens should begin taking a role in the whole process during this time. Appointments will be primarily with the patient only. The teen appointment can be in-depth, is often lengthy and confidentiality guidelines apply.
