Parents in Chatham County now have an additional resource for managing common childhood health problems. The Chatham County Health Department has expanded its pediatric health program to include certain primary care services like treatment of eye and ear infections, upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergies and more.
Services will be offered at the Eisenhower clinic of the Chatham County Health Department by Sierra Peebles, a certified pediatric nurse practitioner.
Appointments can be made for head-to-toe wellness exams, sports physicals, and treatment of common childhood concerns, like:
- Seasonal allergies and sinus infections
- Ear and eye infections
- Upper respiratory infections and sore throat
- Dermatitis and Eczema
Peebles can also make referrals for other health department services, like immunizations, pediatric dental care, the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) nutrition program, and the Babies Can’t Wait developmental program.
“I am excited to begin offering pediatric primary care services in our community,” said Peebles. “Health monitoring, illness prevention, and education are so important for a healthy childhood and adolescence, and every family deserves access to this type of care.”
All services are by appointment only. To make an appointment for a child health visit, call the Chatham County Health Department at 912-356-2441.
