There’s no greater peace of mind than knowing that your child is thriving and healthy.

Sinu Arst offers routine visits, called Well Child Check-ups, from the first month of your child’s life through their teens (18y). These check-ups are the best way to monitor your child’s health and build a strong connection with your family doctor.

The visits typically include a complete physical exam, as well as growth monitoring, developmental screening, immunizations and expert guidance. The doctor will record your child’s height, weight, and other important information, other screening tests will be part of some visits.

Well Child Check-ups are also a great time to complete School, Sports and Camp physicals.

Well Child Check-ups at Sinu Arst follow a generally accepted schedule, but your doctor may recommend a slightly different schedule if needed for your child.

Well child visits will take place at our Children’s Center. This is a area for healthy children only. Therefore, we ask not bring to the area a child who are sick or you suspect are sick, in order to stop the spread of illnesses to other children.

Please inform us by e-mail or telephone immediately in case you have an appointment for a check-up, but your child has fallen ill. We then schedule your visit to take place in another area of the clininc or reschedule your appointment for another time.

Duration: 30 minutes

The main purpose of a sick child visit is to address new or worsening symptoms or health complications. Typically, you schedule a sick visit to address an acute condition or injury.

Common Reason for Sick Visits

It can be hard to determine if your child’s condition warrants a visit to the doctor, so we encourage you to trust your gut and when it doubt, call us.

Sick visits can be used to treat and evaluate a variety of symptoms, such as rashes, sore throats, ear infections, and more.

Some symptoms warrant immediate action, so please call our office if your child meets any of the conditions below:

Some fever symptoms:

  • Fevers in infants of 38°C or higher
  • A fever in a child of any age that ranges between 39°-40°C
  • Your child is lethargic and still has a fever even after taking fever-reducing medication
  • Your child has a fever and compromised immunity
  • A fever with severe pain
  • A fever that lasts longer than 3 consecutive days with or without an obvious source of infection (such as a cold)
  • Your child has a febrile seizure
  • A fever following a trip overseas
  • A fever accompanied by pain when urinating
  • A fever with a headache, stiff neck, or red spots or purple-colored patches on the skin
  • A fever and sore throat that lasts more than 24 to 48 hours

Other Symptoms:

  • Your child has a rash or some allergic reactions
  • Acute injuries (e.g., cuts, scrapes, etc)
  • Ear pain or infections
  • Urinary tract problems (fewer wet diapers or urination frequency)
  • Your child is lethargic, refuses to eat
  • Your child having trouble breathing or asthma attack

What to Expect at Your Sick Visit

To prepare for your child’s sick visit, write down any questions you may have as well as any important details about your child’s symptoms that could be helpful to your doctor.

During your visit, you may need to be seen by a physician other than your usual doctor, though we try to schedule you with a provider you are familiar with.

At your child’s sick visit, your provider will ask about your child’s symptoms, your family’s medical history, and any other questions that may help diagnosing your child’s illness. You can expect your child to have a physical examination, including taking the child’s temperature, checking their breathing and heartbeat, and checking for signs of infection. If your doctor needs additional information, a lab test may be ordered.

Schedule a Sick Visit & Same Day Visit

When your child is sick, call our office to schedule a sick visit ahead of time so we can see you as quickly as possible and minimize the time that you spend waiting.

We make every effort to schedule appointments for ill children on the day that you call us.

If you would like us to see more than one child, please schedule both of them when you make your appointment. Without an appointment, we may not be able to see a sick sibling right away, and you may be asked to wait while the provider sees a scheduled patient who may be waiting.

To schedule an appointment, please call either our Children’s Center Clinic 7151702 or City Center Clinic 7151701

Patients who walk in with a non-emergency condition will be fit into the existing schedule as best as possible, or they will be asked to return later in the day when the schedule allows.

Duration: 30 minutes

At Sinu Arsti Children’s Center, family doctors have skillfully monitored babies and toddlers on their health journey for over 20 years, regardless of whether the child needs a well child check up or a sick child visit.

Since there are still many parents who want their child to be monitored by a pediatrician, we also offer an appointment with a pediatrician with 30 years of experience for children from birth to 19 years of age.

Children with a complex health problem/childhood illness are welcome for an appointment or parents who want a second opinion or reassurance that their baby/toddler is fine.

Duration: 30 minutes

Babies often find a gentle laying on of hands to be very relaxing and there are many therapeutic effects. The reason for that is of all their five senses, touch is the one that’s most developed at birth.

How can massage therapy help?

Massage therapy helps stimulate blood circulation and boost their muscle development. Massage therapy helps ease your baby’s digestive  troubles if babies have trouble with gas, constipation and colic.

Massage therapy can increases a baby’s body awareness, improve their sensory awareness, helps babies relax and release  emotional stress as well as promotes growth and development of the brain and nervous system.

Massage therapy can greatly benefit babies with special needs. Also, it can led to weight gain in preterm babies when moderate pressure massage is provided.

The massage therapist always takes into consideration each baby’s individual physical development, cognitive development and heath care needs..

When coming for a massage:

  • please come to therapy with a rested and fed baby. It is not recommended to feed the baby immediately prior to the massage, rather, 30 min should have passed since the last feeding.
  • at least 3 days must have passed since the last vaccination before coming to  massage therapy

We all know baby feet are adorable, but did you know they can also be secret weapon when it comes to calming babies who are teething, windy or just need a bit of soothing?

The gentle technique of reflexology is believed to tap into certain areas of the body through reflex points on the feet.

Our therapist knows exactly where and how to massage baby feet, so it can help you get through those tough days when nothing seems to ease your baby’s fussiness.

The Benefits of Reflexology for Babies

  • Fantastic for comforting babies after a traumatic birth
  • Improves weight gain (esp beneficial for Premature babies)
  • Relieves discomfort that results from teething or cold
  • Helps the lymphatic system remove toxins from the baby’s tissues after an acute illness
  • Helps to boost babies immune system
  • Relieves digestive ailments such as Colic/Reflux/Constipation
  • Improves circulation
  • Helps to regulate sleep patterns
  • Calming, soothing and reassuring
