What to Expect at Your Pediatric Visit

A visit with your pediatrician or pediatric nurse practitioners (PNP) at Sansum Clinic may include:

  • A complete physical exam
  • Developmental assessment (DDST)
  • Evaluation and treatment of common illnesses
  • Health education and guidance with breast feeding
  • Developmental, nutritional, behavioral and parenting guidance
  • Our pediatricians and PNPs participate in continuing medical education, ensuring that our patients benefit from the latest advancements in pediatric care.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated and versatile reception and nursing staff with many years of experience. Our nurses are available for telephone consultation in regards to problems or questions you may have about your child's behavior, diet and care of minor illness.

The members of the Pediatrics Department enjoy being active in the community. Many participate as educators and volunteers for Camp Wheez, the free day camp for children with asthma. Others enjoy contributing their talents as community educators, regularly providing health information to Santa Barbara-area schools, support groups and parenting organizations.
