Provider Tips with Kara LaRue, CPNP

Contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment for your child.

Parents, we understand your concern when it comes to your little one’s health. But here’s a valuable tip from one of our provider’s here at Shults Pediatrics:

–We understand that parents want us to see the full picture when their little ones aren’t feeling well. However, holding off on giving Children’s Tylenol or Children’s Motrin before a visit can sometimes make the assessment challenging.

Here’s the scoop: When kids are uncomfortable due to fever, they might not cooperate fully during the exam. Getting that fever down helps them feel better and lets us provide a more thorough assessment, catching any other symptoms or issues.
