Pediatric Care

We provide comprehensive family medicine services for newborns and children of all ages.  Our experienced staff will guide you through all the essential decisions you'll need to make regarding your infant's care.  As your child grows, our team will continue to offer personal service and expertise guidance.  East Penn Medical Practice's all-inclusive approach is ideal for children of all ages. When you need us, we'll be here.

 

The East Penn Medical Team embraces a very proactive approach in working with parents of young children. We want you to feel comfortable reaching out to us with questions or concerns at any time.

Pediatric Care for Infants: The First Year

Regular doctor visits and check-ups are essential to ensuring the health of your newborn. Plan to come see us within the first week after you're discharged from the hospital. We follow all AMA prescribed medical guidelines for monitoring the health of your infant. We'll guide you through common issues related to nutrition, sleeping habits, lactation, post-partum depression, allergies and illnesses.

Our team will consult with you regarding every detail of your newborn's development. We'll help ensure that all developmental milestones are met. We'll work together to outline a vaccination schedule that meets with your approval. We're doctors and nurses with families of our own. We understand the questions, concerns and anxieties that coincide with caring for an infant. Our team stands ready to support you with decades of medical expertise, advice and best practices.

Pediatric Care for Children Ages 1 through 3 Years

After year one, your child will become increasingly mobile and ever more curious. Along with our regular schedule of well visits, physicals, and vaccines, we will continue to monitor and track your child's physical and cognitive development. We'll reinforce the importance of safety in and around the home including all steps necessary to child-proof your indoor and outdoor living spaces. Accidents and injuries are common during the toddler years. It is essential to take extra precautions during these years to protect young children from accidental injury while encouraging them to explore their surroundings.

Childhood illness may become more frequent between ages 1 — 3 and we'll be ready to see your child and provide expert medical guidance.

Pediatric Care for Children Ages 4 — 12

Our team will continue to provide the same high-quality, personalized care as you begin preparing to send your child to school. We'll help you ensure compliance with all preschool and kindergarten regulations including documentation of regular physicals and vaccinations.

Your child becomes increasingly verbal during these formative years and our team will engage your child directly when assessing symptoms of illnesses.  We'll provide guidance and oversight on healthy weight gain, activity levels, exercise and athletics.  As your point of contact for your child's health and development, we are eager to listen and work with you in managing your child's health.

My parents first took me to East Penn Medical Practice when I was a little boy. I have so many good memories of visits to see Dr. Robert Barnes. You couldn't ask for a more caring or compassionate physician. His gentle nature and attentive bedside manner always made me feel safe as a child.

I'm now 42 years old and I have three children of my own. I take all my children to see Dr. Robert Barnes, and I was thrilled when his son, Dr. Brian Barnes, joined the practice in 2005. Dr. Brian is just like his Dad... ever-concerned about the health and well-being of his patients, ready to listen and always attentive. I've always felt like part of the family at East Penn Medical Practice and I can't imagine having a higher level of trust or confidence in a family doctor.
