It’s Time to Get Your Flu Vaccine!

The best defense against the flu is getting your family vaccinated. Viruses do change, as seen in years past, so it’s important to get a flu vaccine annually. This year’s flu vaccine has four strains (quadrivalent) of flu virus, two A (H1N1 and H3N2) and two B (Phuket/Yamagata and Brisbane/Victoria lineage).

ADHD & Learning Differences

Parents often wonder how to determine if their child's behavior is "normal" or if they might have a problem that needs attention. There are many kinds of learning differences a child might experience. Our diagnosticians are experts at evaluating and determining if there are issues that can be addressed and treated in a friendly, supportive environment.

Countdown to Christmas!

As a rule, we discourage walk in visits. If you really think it is an emergency, call us first, or if you’re really worried, go to the emergency room, which is best equipped to handle true emergencies. Patients with appointments (and that will be you, of course) deserve to be seen as close to on time as we can manage. Walk in patients will be triaged by the nurse, and if stable, will be given the next available appointment. It’s always to your and everyone else’s advantage to call for a time.
We are privileged to work with two outstanding PNPs. We utilize our PNPs in order to see your child in a timely manner. There may be an occasion when your primary care physician is unavailable and in those instances there is a PNP available to see your child. You may see a PNP for any well child examinations or sick visits.
When you schedule a visit with a PNP at Pediatricians of Dallas, the appointment format will be the same as seeing your primary pediatrician. Your child will be weighed and measured with a brief history obtained by the nursing staff. The nurse practitioner will then see you and your child–collect a history, review pertinent data for a well child examination, perform a physical assessment, order any necessary diagnostic examinations/immunizations, discuss important safety and health promotion tips, and treat any illnesses with appropriate medications. If the nurse practitioner feels a second opinion is needed during your visit, there will always be access to a pediatrician with whom the nurse practitioner can collaborate.
A Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (PNP) is a nurse that holds an advance degree, usually Master’s of Science in Nursing, to practice as a nurse practitioner. This advanced training allows a nurse practitioner to perform physical examinations, diagnose and medically manage common childhood illnesses, and teaching with focus on disease prevention. A PNP holds a nursing license from the State Board of Nurse Examiners with a specialty designation that a PNP receives prescriptive authority and is allowed to prescribe medications to treat childhood illnesses. A PNP works in collaboration with a pediatrician in most settings. Many of the skills of a PNP straddle both the role of a nurse (assessments, histories, diagnosis, and teaching patient/families) and the role of a physician (order diagnostic exams, order medications, treat medical diseases and patient/family education). Scope of practice of a PNP:
  • Serve as health provider for well and sick children from newborn through adolescence.
  • Perform wellness and health maintenance examinations.
  • Perform developmental screenings.
  • Diagnose and treat common childhood illnesses.
  • Provide anticipatory guidance regarding common child health concerns.
  • Provide childhood immunizations.
  • Perform school physicals.
