Pediatrician is your child’s main physician, so we refer to him with any health problem our child has. If your child has a recurrent rhinitis, cough, ear pain or stomachache, if your little one does nor eat well, or, conversely, is a little too plump, if a child has toilet problems, unexplained rashes on the body, allergy or fever, consult your pediatrician.
Our doctors receive patients from 9.00 to 21.00 and make house calls to sick children 24 hours a day 7 days a week. All stuff of EMC Children's clinic speaks English.
We advise and prescribe therapy only in accordance with the principles of evidence-based medicine. You can be sure that your child does not get prescription for any extra tests or medicines. In a case of child with high fever though, a doctor will prescribe the required analyses to obtain information on whether the infection is viral or bacterial. Such conditions as sore throat, flu, RS virus, urinary tract infection, pneumonia, sinusitis, or hypertrophy of adenoids are diagnosed immediately during the appointment.
At the time of appointment our physicians also conduct the full range of preventive measures, traditional for national pediatric practice:
newborn home nursing, and care within the first year of life on monthly basis (advice on breastfeeding, vaccinations, including developing individual plan of vaccinations, introduction of complementary foods, assessment of child growth and development);
