Care of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder / Attention Deficit Disorder
Children with behavior problems often cause worry and concern for parents, who may be unsure of how to treat this situation. A behavioral consultation allows our doctor to assess your child's natural activity and interaction, and to review interviews with you, teachers or other involved adults, in order to assess behavior and develop a treatment plan.
Haywood Pediatrics refers patients for Behavioral Health Services as needed. Consultations can be performed at any age, but most commonly on school-age children. We work together with you and your child to develop an individualized treatment plan with scheduled follow-up visits.
This type of visit is reserved for children taking certain medications. Rechecks are most often necessary related to medications used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and those for asthma and allergies. These visits are made to ensure that the medication is working properly, monitor for side effects, maintain effective dosing and monitor growth and behavior. These appointments are often scheduled every 3 to 6 months.
This visit is for children undergoing a surgical procedure for which the surgeon requires medical clearance. Typically, pre-operative visits are completed 7-10 days before the procedure.
Rechecks are follow-up visits for a prior diagnosis. Rechecks are most often scheduled for ear infections, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, burns, mononucleosis, concussions and cellulitis. The provider determines the need for rechecks and the recommended scheduling time frame.
This is an appointment for an immediate visit, Some common emergencies include fractures, lacerations, altered mental status and respiratory distress. Patients will be instructed by our triage staff to come to the office immediately or to go to the emergency room.

Haywood Pediatrics provides many services for our patients. Some of these services are delivered as part of a child's routine care while others occur on an as needed basis. Most of these services are covered by your insurance carrier. In the event that it is not, you will be notified.
Abscess Incision and Drainage (I&D)
An abscess is a localized collection of pus in the tissues of the body, often accompanied by swelling and inflammation and frequently caused by bacteria. They may require drainage in order to heal. For specific sites, our doctors are capable of incising and draining these infections. Depending upon the site and size, sometimes it is necessary for these to be drained by a surgeon.
Our offices provide treatments for burns and sunburn. This includes removing damaged skin as well as providing proper wound dressing and antibiotics as needed.
Complete Blood Count with Differential (CBC)
This is a blood test most often obtained via a finger stick. It is done to evaluate patients for anemia or during sick visits to help providers determine the severity of a child's illness. Results are often available within minutes.
During flu season, our staff can perform influenza cultures. This culture is performed by swabbing the nose of the patient. This culture can identify influenza type A and type B. The result can be obtained within 15 minutes.
Nebulizer therapy may be provided when a child is having difficulty breathing either due to a respiratory illness or an asthma exacerbation. The nebulizer contains a bronchodilator, such as albuterol, used to open tight airways. Nebulizer treatments may also contain steroid medical to reduce airway inflammation.
In the event that your child has an injury, our staff may splint the area to stabilize and immobilize the injury. We do not have the ability to perform X-rays in our office but we do use local radiology groups to rule out fractures.
Our staff has the ability to perform throat cultures to diagnose strep throat infections. We use rapid strep cultures which can provide a result within 10 minutes. If the rapid test is negative, we perform a 48 hour throat culture to confirm the result of the rapid test. If the 24-48 hour culture is positive, we will notify you and send in a prescription to your pharmacy.
We can perform a screening of your child's urine. This test screens for the presence of blood, protein, white blood cells and sugar to rule out a number of health conditions. This test may be done as part of a well child exam and as part of a sick patient evaluation when necessary.
This screening test does not test for the presence of recreational drugs.
In the event that a patient's urinalysis indicates a urinary tract infection, a urine culture may be performed in our office. This culture is performed over 24-48 hours and may identify that bacteria is causing the infection. If bacterial sensitivities need to be identified to determine which antibiotics would be best to treat the infection we would then send the culture to an outpatient laboratory.
