How Primary Pediatrics Stands Out Among Macon Pediatricians
Choosing a pediatrician in Middle Georgia can be overwhelming. With plenty of options to choose from, you want the very best! Primary Pediatrics is dedicated to helping your child. We accomplish this by creating a welcoming office environment, having a child life specialist on staff to calm your child’s fears, and offering same-day sick appointments. Discover the details:
Child-Friendly Office Environment
Have you ever walked into a doctor’s office and it feels cold and unwelcoming? That’s the LAST thing we want your child to feel when she walks into Primary Pediatrics. That’s why we have created an x-box area for the kids, fun fish to look at, an inviting atmosphere, and more! We know that when a child is comfortable in a doctor’s office, she is less likely to have anxiety.
Same-Day Sick Appointments
Sickness doesn’t care what time it is, but we care about how fast we can treat your child’s sickness! That’s why we offer same-day sick appointments. When you notice your child producing symptoms, give us a call. We will give recommendations for immediate treatment and schedule a same-day appointment with your child’s pediatrician.
Child Life Specialist
We are thrilled to have a child life specialist on staff at our North Macon location. A child life specialist looks at the psychosocial care of patients and their families by providing distraction, emotional support, educational preparation for procedures, and developmentally appropriate techniques in order to best cope with all aspects of clinical care.
