Pediatrics: FAQs

Whether you're a first-time parent, a parent who hasn't been a parent of a little one in a while, or a parent just trying to stay updated, you may have questions about pediatric care. And our Dr. Farnoush Jamali, serving Gaithersburg, MD, and the nearby region, wants to answer them, so you can stay on top of your little child's health and wellness. Let's discuss some of the most frequently asked questions about pediatrics.

How Often Should I Bring My Child for Wellness Visits?

This depends on your child's age. Typically, your child will need to see a pediatrician in Gaithersburg, MD, three to five days after birth. It's then advised you bring your child in at two weeks, again at four weeks, and then once at two months and again at four months. During your baby's first year of life, he or she will also need to come for a six-month and nine-month appointment. Then, your child will need to see the pediatrician at one year and once per year after that.

Although this sounds like a lot to keep track of, our office helps you stay up to date with appointments through scheduling and reminders.

You can also bring your child in anytime he or she is ill or sustained an injury.

Why Choose Pediatric Care as Opposed to a General Practitioner?

Our pediatrician has specialized medical experience with children and thoroughly understands their growth and development, while a general practitioner understands the body as a whole and general information about the health and wellness of children.

At Prime Pediatrics, serving Gaithersburg, MD, and the surrounding area, Dr. Jamali specializes in the health and well-being of children and can help your child remain healthy.
