Adolescent Medicine


North Florida Pediatrics focuses on the medical and emotional issues most specific to teenagers and young adults, including puberty, sexuality, identity, mental health, social and emotional development.




Immunizations & Flu Shots


Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and they are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention. We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.




Chronic Conditions & Special Needs


All children will likely have many different health problems during infancy and childhood, but for most children these problems are mild, they come and go, and they do not interfere with their daily life and development. For some children, however, chronic health conditions affect everyday life throughout childhood.

We’ll define a chronic health condition as a health problem that lasts over three months, affects your child’s normal activities, and requires lots of hospitalizations and/or home health care and/or extensive medical care.

Chronic condition is an "umbrella" term. Children with chronic illnesses may be ill or well at any given time, but they are always living with their condition. Some examples of chronic conditions include ( but are not limited to):

  • Asthma (the most common)
  • Diabetes
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Cancer
  • AIDS
  • Epilepsy
  • Spina bifida
  • Congenital heart problems
Even though these are very different illnesses, kids and families dealing with any chronic condition have a lot in common. Learning to live with a chronic condition can be very challenging for a child, for parents, and for siblings and friends. North Florida Pediatrics will be able to provide that compassionate care every step of the way!




Developmental Screenings


If a child has a developmental delay, it is important to identify it early so that the child and family can receive needed intervention services and support. Here at North Florida Pediatrics we play a critical role in monitoring children’s growth and development and identifying problems as early as possible. Developmental Screenings & Monitoring includes:

  • Monitor the child’s development at each visit.
  • Periodically screen children with validated tools to identify any areas of concern that may require a further examination or evaluation.
  • Ensure that more comprehensive developmental evaluations are completed if risks are identified.




Behavioral & Developmental Health


Our Behavorial & Delevopemental Health Services consists of:

When a child is diagnosed with a behavorial health issue parents often have concerns about which treatment is right for their child. Behavorial & Developmental Health can be managed with the right treatment. There are many treatment options, and what works best can depend on the individual child and family. To find the best options, it is recommended that parents work closely with others involved in their child’s life—healthcare providers, therapists, teachers, coaches, and other family members. Here at North Florida Pediatrics, we will strive to provide the most compassionate care we possibly can.

*Frenotomy


Services available in San Marco, & Nocatee locations only. (a.k.a. frenulotomy or frenulectomy) is the procedure in which the lingual frenulum is cut. It is done when the frenulum seems unusually short or tight (anklyoglossia or "tongue-tie"). Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a condition present at birth that restricts the tongue's range of motion. With tongue-tie, an unusually short, thick or tight band of tissue (lingual frenulum) tethers the bottom of the tongue's tip to the floor of the mouth, so it may interfere with breast-feeding. Someone who has tongue-tie might have difficulty sticking out his or her tongue. Tongue-tie can also affect the way a child eats, speaks and swallows. Sometimes tongue-tie may not cause problems. Some cases may require a simple surgical procedure for correction. Symptoms Signs and symptoms of tongue-tie include:

  • Difficulty lifting the tongue to the upper teeth or moving the tongue from side to side
  • Trouble sticking out the tongue past the lower front teeth
  • A tongue that appears notched or heart shaped when stuck out
