The CDC has now approved Pfizer Covid-19 Vaccine for children six months and older. Other manufacturers are in the process of approval. Now anyone six months and older can get a Free Covid-19 vaccine at our clinic. We are an approved clinic for vaccinations by Vaccine For Children (VFC) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) for giving Covid-19 and other vaccinations to anyone. Covid-19 vaccines are FREE to all. We specialize in pediatric care. Other vaccines are covered by insurance under preventive care. If you do not have insurance or cannot afford vaccines, we can give you vaccines for a nominal charge for children under the VFC program.
Certain problems in children, such as allergy, asthma, acne, behavioral problems, sleep disorders, developmental delays, learning disorders, attention deficits, hyperactivity problems and bed wetting, are difficult to treat. We are continually improving our ability to diagnose, treat and manage these types of problems. We incorporate new approaches and treatments. Often, the latest research makes its way into healthcare late, while patients continue to be treated in conventional ways, and according to insurance company rules. The customary system of healthcare and patient interaction with care-providers does not encourage enough time, or enough depth of investigation, or individualized planning & care that some of these problems need. If the patients would receive this degree of attention and quality of care, treatments would be more effective and give results in a shorter time. We seek the help of other specialists and facilities from Stanford for challenging children for best outcome and care.
Our Physicians Approach to Your Children’s Health
Board Certified Dr. Shivani Chawla Mehta’s consults for children and adolescents rely on the principle that a better quality can be achieved through individualized planning and care, and use of new medical information. Proper follow-ups of these problems are very important. In order to arrive at an optimal treatment plan, it may be necessary to involve other healthcare specialists in consultation. Most of these evaluations may require laboratory tests, radiology and other screening tests which are likely to be covered by your insurance provider. Others like speech evaluation or psychological evaluation may involve private payment to the appropriate specialist. We will help you navigate through complexity.
