Services

At WakeMed Physician Practices — Primary Care — Garner, we make our patients' overall health a priority by providing a range of health care services for adults and children of all ages – from newborn to adults. From wellness and prevention to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of medical conditions, our physicians are here for you and your loved ones. Below is an overview of the services we provide:

Garner Pediatric Care and Family Medicine
Caring for children is an important part of the care we provide. Since our Garner pediatricians and family medicine doctors care for many families, we find that many kids and parents appreciate the benefits of sharing a physician. Parents get to know us well as providers, which can lead to a trusting relationship, and having a common physician can bring consistency in how children are treated for similar conditions. Finally, sharing a provider can save time for busy parents.

Pediatric Care Services
Children of all ages are changing constantly, making it important to visit your physician regularly. Depending on the age of your child(ren), many of the following services our Garner pediatricians provide can either help prevent illness and injury, or bring your child to better health.

  • Annual Well Visits: At a minimum, our Garner pediatricians should see your child(ren) once a year for an annual check-up. During this visit, our pediatricians review the child's overall health, vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure) and check them from head to toe. This includes a height and weight check to make sure physical development is on track. Our pediatricians in Garner will assess all major systems (respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous and gastrointestinal) to identify potential health problems. We may also perform routine blood work to assess for certain blood disorders like anemia or high cholesterol, lead poisoning and other nutritional disorders.
  • Sick Visits: Because kids are in school with lots of other kids and germs, getting sick is very common in children. Our Garner pediatricians leave room in our day for unexpected sick and urgent care visits for the convenience of our patients. We can help treat the common cold, flu, ear or upper respiratory infections, rashes, bumps and bruises, just to name a few.
  • Disease/Condition Management: Our pediatricians in Garner can help children manage diseases or conditions such as asthma, diabetes, attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Our Garner pediatricians specialize in educating parents and kids about their conditions, medications and how to best manage their health.
  • Screenings: Children should be screened regularly for vision, hearing and scoliosis. We can perform these important tests any time throughout the year or during an annual well exam.
  • Immunizations: Our pediatricians in Garner can provide most immunizations throughout the year, including measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), varicella, polio, human papilloma virus (HPV), tetanus, hepatitis and meningococcal. Influenza vaccines come in once a year, just before flu season, which begins in October. If you have vaccine questions, please contact our office and we are happy to assist.

Thank you for trusting our team of Garner pediatricians, family and internal medicine physicians to care for you and your loved ones.
