Choosing a pediatrician is not something parents should take lightly. You want someone you can trust and someone who will treat your child like the precious human he or she is. At Physicians Clinic of Iowa Pediatrics, our experienced team provides everything your child needs in a caring, nurturing environment.
Pediatricians prevent, detect and manage physical, behavioral and developmental issues that affect children. Pediatric care starts at birth and normally continues through your child's 18th birthday. Our pediatricians diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.
At PCI, our Pediatrics Team:
- Has specialized training in the physical, emotional, and behavioral needs of children.
- Only sees children, so we have more experience recognizing and treating childhood illnesses.
- Can offer specialized care if your child was premature or has a health condition that needs close monitoring.
- Can help you find a specialist if your child needs surgery.
