An essential part of any checkup is diagnostic screening. Prevention is always better than treatment, and a regular health check is especially important for your child. Diagnostic screening involves blood or urine tests to help detect an illness or disease. Village Pediatric Group in Tuckahoe, New York, offers diagnostic screening for your child as part of their pediatric exam.
Laboratory testing is performed several times for a child between when they are born to when they reach three years of age. This routine testing helps determine if your child has been exposed to lead paint or has anemia. From the ages of three to nine years old, children who have a family history of heart attack, stroke, or high cholesterol should have a cholesterol screening. We also assess your child’s risk for other illnesses at each annual visit and determine if any further screening is necessary.
Sexually active teenagers are screened for common sexually transmitted diseases. Some other screenings that might be necessary are testing for illnesses like RSV, flu, diabetes, strep throat, and vitamin deficiencies. Village Pediatric Group offers the latest innovative laboratory testing.
