From mental health to physical health, we have your child’s overall well-being covered at our walk-in clinic.
While children can be defiant about taking their medications, or eating the right amount of vegetables, studies have shown that having a pediatric counselor in the doctor’s office contributes positively to their health. By having trained and knowledgeable pediatricians and staff on-site at Julia Barriga M.D. P.A., we hope to instill healthy habits and open communication with children during their doctor’s appointment. Our goal is to include the entire family in the conversation, so your child’s health needs are communicated openly with you while you are already at the clinic.
Our pediatric clinic in Tampa, FL can help your child with a variety of health maintenance issues, which can include the following:
- Nutritional Habits
- Mental Health
At our pediatric clinic, our professionals know that every child’s needs are different, so we specifically tailor our health counseling to each individual and their specific needs. We provide all of our health education and counseling in Tampa with the parents in mind as well, and collaborate with each family to help raise a healthy child. By helping a child structure their eating and exercise habits at a young age, you will be helping them live a healthier life as they get older as well. Rather than taking your child to a separate therapist and using up valuable time, Julia Barriga M.D. P.A. offers on-site health and wellness counseling for children. In addition, your child will be more likely to follow through with a healthy routine if they are in a familiar doctor’s office environment.
Julia Barriga M.D. P.A.’s greatest asset is our team of pediatricians, health counselors and medical professionals.
