Why does your child need a personal physician?

Choosing a pediatrician as your child’s primary care provider is important for keeping him/her healthy and happy. Pediatricians are specially trained to treat children and are on the cutting edge of pediatric healthcare, ensuring your child will receive the best and most advanced care possible. Having one provider who knows your child’s health history and current conditions will keep her/him up to date on all checkups, vaccines, and screenings. Your child’s personal pediatrician is also more equipped to recognize problems and connect you with any other healthcare resources than an urgent care doctor or any other provider who does not know his/her history. The providers at Oakbrook Pediatrics have been proud to serve the community for a number of years and are excited to continue to provide the best and most personalized care for your children.

Asthma

Back to school time is a season where many children with Asthma will suffer a flare of symptoms.  Pollen, dust mites, animal dander and viral upper respiratory infections (colds) all contribute to “trigger” and inflame asthma symptoms.

Symptoms include:

Wheezing

Chest tightness

Cough( especially at night or with exercise)

Shortness of breath

If your child has asthma or has symptoms that might suggest asthma, please schedule an appointment. We like to see our patients with asthma in the fall and spring to ensure that they are on the correct controller medications to help prevent symptom flares.  Flu vaccines are very important to receive as well.

For more information on asthma, avoidance of triggers, controller medication and rescue medication, please visit www.healthychildren.org
