Even before a child is born a family has to determine the answers to several questions. One of the most important questions is about vaccination and immunization. Harvey Pediatrics Practice follows the Center for Disease Control's recommnedate schedule for children. The CDC explains, "The recommended immunization schedule is designed to protect infants and children early in life, when they are most vulnerable and before they are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases." 

Our practice understands that for some families the idea of immunization can be difficult. There are significant amounts of misinformation and opinions on the subject. Our educated medical professionals are here to help you understand the importance of each vaccine and what they mean. We hope if you are in Northwest Arkansas and looking for a care provider you will consider us. 

Here is a great resource to create a schedule for your family's heath.

Obtaining a diagnossis for a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disoder can be difficult.  The National Institute of Mental Health defines ADHD

"Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behavior, and hyperactivity (over-activity)."  

For a parent looking for answers, ADHD can be difficult to navigate. Harvey Pediatrics has a specialist on-staff to assist our patients and their family understand the unique circumstances of such a diagnosis. Our Child Psychology is full time and provides ADHD testing and developmental testing. If you are in the Bentonville and Rogers area looking for testing for a child with ADHD, we are happy to help. 

 

If you have a school-age child who looks forward to summer camp, now is the time to start thinking through Summer Camp Preparation. The first step in this process is making sure your child is healthy and ready to tackle all the fun physical activities that come along with Summer Camp. When you schedule your Summer Camp (or Kindergarten) Physical, one of our Nurse Practioners gives your little one a good once over. You can expect testing for  vision, Diabetes, height, weight, other vitals and immunizations. We do this to insure your child is developmentally on track and ready for a Summer or school year of fun.  Wondering what Summer Camps in Northwest Arkansas are avaiable to your children? NWAmotherlode.com has some great lists of local camps that are worth a look.
