Pediatric Services in Jacksonville, FL

Pediatric Services

Pediatric care involves a very different dynamic in terms of patient care. Instead of just a relationship between patient and doctor, a good relationship must be established between doctor, parents and child. Quality pediatric services are provided when trust and communication is established within this relationship.

Pediatrics is also the foundation for the health of the individual throughout their lifetime. Pediatricians are skilled at caring for children who are constantly growing and developing, much different than caring for the fully developed adult. With this in mind, pediatric services include education and resources for young patients with the goal of developing health-conscious individuals.

Who is pediatric care for?

Pediatrics encompasses treating children from the time they are born until they are 21 years old. These years have the biggest impact on an individual’s health throughout their lifetime. During this time your child’s body and body systems are growing and developing into the fully mature versions of themselves. This crucial time of development allows pediatricians to monitor your child’s growth physically and mentally and assure proper development.

Well Child Visit

The well child visit is typically the staple of pediatric services. This one service can help prevent, diagnose, treat and monitor children. The well child visit is important because it gives pediatricians the ability to monitor your child on a regular basis and determine if there are any current or potential developmental problems or medical conditions. Pediatricians can then use this knowledge to practice preventative medicine and diagnose/treat conditions before they get out of control. Check our Well Child Visit Schedule to determine if your child is due for a pediatric visit.

“The best doctors offices (we have gone to both locations multiple times) in the world if you as me! I have never had a bad experience! Each appointment with any doctor we see in the group is great!

They love my babies and make them feel comfortable and relaxed as if they see them everyday! In today’s world everyone needs a doctors them.”

Ryann A.

“I have went through a few different pediatricians with my daughter and Carithers by far has exceeded my expectations. Every concern has been quickly acknowledged. If I have any questions they are answered appropriately and they never make me feel silly for asking.”

Lacie V.

“I have been using Carithers for 5 years. I have always been happy with the office, nurses and
doctors. My last visit was flu shots for my 2 year old and 5 year old. The nurses exceeded my
expectations!! They were amazing with my boys. They took their time and calmed my boys
before giving the shots. They were so great!!The front office staff is always friendly, sweet and
accommodating. We always feel welcomed, which is important to me and my family. The office
is clean and the location is safe. ”

“My toddler twins love the doctors and staff at both Carithers locations!!!”

Glenn F.

“I was looking for a better pediatrician for my 17-month-old and newborn. A friend referred me
to Carithers after raving about them. I have to say that they were worth the rave. I love how
professional and friendly everyone is. They have a very efficient system. The doctors do not rush
you and they make you feel like no question is the wrong question. The office and every room are
clean and tidy. I am so glad that I switched my children over to Carithers.”

Keisha M.

“Always a wonderful experience with the very personable doctors and nurses!!”

James M.

“Overall, our experience with Carithers has been very good. Both my husband and I were patients
at this practice as children and we are glad our children have the opportunity to receive the
same wonderful care that we did. We have seen a wide range of Dr. S at the practice and would
feel good about many being our children’s primary physician.”

Caroline B.

“I was a patient of Carithers Pediatrics in the 1970s, and my three kids will age-out of the practice
too! Terrific doctors, well-run practice. The doctors are experts and “present” – we aren’t
numbers …and holy cow do they listen. After I explained an ongoing medical problem to the
doctor, I heard her repeat the issue to another doctor – thoroughly and concisely … she had
absorbed it all. They always call back in a timely fashion, no insurance problems … we are 100%
thrilled with the medical care and office-care we receive. Thanks all!”
