Choosing a pediatrician for your child is an important decision. At First California Physician Partners, we look forward to helping your child grow from a healthy infant into a healthy adult.

We are devoted to providing high-quality, timely and appropriate pediatric care services to infants, children and adolescents. If you have questions about your child’s development, a pediatrician in Manteca, CA may be able to help you.

What Is the Role of a Pediatrician?

Children require different types of treatment from adults as their organs have not yet fully developed. Also, children need a healthcare specialist who can communicate with them and with whom they can feel comfortable.

First California Physician Partners pediatric services include:

  • Well-child care from birth through adolescence
  • Well-baby checkups and immunizations
  • Treatment for minor lacerations and minor injuries
  • School and sports physicals
  • Acute care for sudden illnesses such as ear infections, sore throats or colds/flu

Our pediatricians in Manteca, CA focus on the health of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. They diagnose, treat and manage children's developmental, behavioral and physical issues.

Although general physicians may care for children, pediatricians are specifically trained to diagnose and treat children's injuries, infections and other health conditions. They will work with your child’s primary physician to determine the appropriate treatment. Pediatricians may also prescribe medications, but they do not perform surgery.

Pediatricians are involved in the following:

Educating Parents About Expected Child Development

Parents may not always be aware of how their children should be developing. Through well-child visits, a pediatrician can help parents review expected development for a child’s age and discuss the next development stage to help prepare you and your child for future changes.

Conducting Developmental Screening

A pediatrician may be able to determine if a child is meeting developmental expectations in terms of the following:

  • Motor development
  • Language development
  • Social development
  • Self-care or social development

A pediatrician may recommend a child to other specialists for further screening if they are not meeting expected developmental milestones for their age.

Why Do You Need a Pediatrician?

A pediatrician is trained to evaluate a child’s overall physical and emotional health, ensuring their development is on track. A pediatrician may also give babies recommended vaccines to help protect them from infections. Well-child visits are your opportunity to voice any concerns about your child’s health.

What Do Adolescent Medicine Specialists Do?

Our pediatricians are also trained in adolescent medicine to care for teens and young adults. They are trained to deal with the complex emotional, physical and behavioral healthcare needs this age group faces. First California Physician Partners can provide your child with comprehensive care and treatment for a variety of conditions, such as:

  • Alcohol, tobacco and drug use prevention and counseling
  • Chest pain, headaches and more
  • Chronic or acute illnesses
  • Depression, anxiety and other psychosocial problems
  • Growth and development issues
  • Learning, school and attention problems
  • Nutrition and eating disorders
  • Physical exams for sports participation, driver’s permit and more
  • Reproductive health or sexuality issues
  • Skin conditions such as acne
  • Sports medicine

At First California Physician Partners, our pediatricians may initiate the conversation about transitioning from the pediatric office as part of discussions about developmental changes. If a child has special needs, we coordinate with parents to help them find available services before they switch to other specialists.
