Pediatrics is a medical specialty that focuses on children and teens' physical, emotional, behavioral, and social development. With extensive experience working with children and adults, Dr. Favuzza provides comprehensive care for children as they age.
Hometown Health Care of NEPA offers a full range of pediatric care services, such as:
A physical exam is a head-to-toe screening that helps identify early medical concerns and ensures your child remains healthy as they grow.
Well-child visits are complete exams that track and monitor your child’s growth and development. They begin just a few days after your child’s birth and continue until age 18. These assessments include a physical exam and emotional, social, and behavioral evaluations.
If your child suffers an injury or feels unwell, Dr. Favuzza at Hometown Health Care of NEPA may order diagnostic services, such as X-rays, a strep test, or a COVID-19 test.
You can schedule a prompt sick visit when your child has a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, or other signs of acute illness. Dr. Favuzza works with you to ensure she sees your child as quickly as possible.
Vaccines are preventive treatments that protect against infectious diseases. School districts in Pennsylvania require children to be vaccinated before the start of the school year.
Sports injuries can take your child away from the activities they enjoy. That’s why it’s important to seek treatment at the first sign of a fracture, deep cut, or sprain.
As a pediatric specialist, Dr. Favuzza provides compassionate care for children as they age, whether your child visits for a sports physical or minor injury treatment.
The details of your child’s pediatric visit depend on their age. If you have a baby, Dr. Favuzza may measure their length and head circumference before performing a physical exam. As your child gets older, she focuses on their physical and developmental growth. She may provide patient education on puberty and contraception counseling during their teenage years.
