The pediatricians at Dignity Health Medical Group – Merced are focused on delivering the care needed for infants, children, and adolescents.
Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases. Both our pediatricians and family medicine physicians are available to provide care for children of all ages.
Doctors who provide care for children are advocates for the health and development for every child. Dignity Health Medical Group – Merced's pediatricians and family medicine physicians create a nurturing environment, counsel both patients and parents in making healthy choices and provide guidance and education in preventive care. If a health condition arises that requires care from a pediatric specialty physician, your pediatrician will be there to guide you and coordinate all aspects of your child's care.
Our pediatricians offer a wide range of care from immunizations to acute illness treatment and chronic disease management. The first three years of life are particularly crucial to a child's development. This is because a lot of development occurs in your baby’s first years, and the pediatrician will monitor this growth and determine that your baby is developing normally. During this period, children should make regular visits with a pediatrician so as to make clinical observations, chart developmental milestones, and if any concerns are raised, conduct follow-up screenings and consider early intervention. If any developmental concerns arise, your pediatrician will refer you to the appropriate pediatric specialist for further evaluation and treatment.
