Sometimes it is hard to know where to start when your child is sick, injured or has a health concern. You may be surprised by our pediatric testing capabilities at Sun Pediatrics. Because we focus on your child’s comfort, our office can be a much less intimidating option than the emergency room or a specialist office. Here are some of the testing options we offer in our office:
Blood and Hemoglobin
Blood and hemoglobin tests can be used to determine a lot of issues in the body. Sometimes this is part of a routine test, such as a lead test. Other times, we use these tests to try and find out why a child has an unexplained health condition, such as bruising or bleeding easily or unexplained fatigue.
Fecal Occult Stool
If your child is experiencing issues related to digestion, this test will help a doctor determine if there is hidden blood in the child’s stool. This is not a diagnostic test, but it can confirm that the doctor should test further for potential allergies, infections or other problems.
Sun Pediatrics offers both rapid antigen and PCR testing for COVID-19, Influenza, RSV and Strep. If you suspect your child may be infected with one of these diseases, we welcome you to visit our office for testing. Of course, we encourage parents to help children use proper disease prevention strategies in our office such as distancing, masking and hand-washing.
In order to test for urinary tract infections or other medical conditions, we are able to help kids with the difficult process of collecting and testing urine right in our offices.
In-House Lab Draws
If your child needs a blood draw for any lab work, we can do this at our office, instead of having to go to a lab or hospital.
OAE Hearing Test
This is a test for potential hearing problems in younger children.
