Parenthood has a lot of involvement from a child’s infancy through their youthful stage (high school graduate). At times the challenge can be overwhelming as the child’s health needs to be in check at all times. However, Dr. Carrie Jones is a board-certified pediatrician at Argyle Pediatrics in Texas, she compassionately offers health services to see children grow in a healthy and happy life. She creates a healthy relationship with her patients to meet their specific needs.
Dr. Jones attained a degree in Biology from the prestigious University of Baylor in Waco, Texas. She later joined the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she gained interest in pediatrics, later getting her medical degree. She then went to Naval Medical Center in San Diego to finish her residency and internship in Pediatrics.
Dr. Carrie offers several healthcare services, as discussed below.
Dr. Jones assesses the weight, height, head circumference, and length five days from birth. She screens the baby’s reflexes, hearing ability and does an overall physical evaluation of the baby. The doctor creates time with the parent to discuss the diet of the child and general lifestyle in depth that can be either an influence from the parent such as indoor smoking or consumption of a healthy diet like good nutrition and sleeping habits.
Asthma is a chronic medical condition that causes difficulties in breathing. It is a result of inflammation in the breathing tubes that cause the air movement to be strenuous. Dr. Carrie keeps her patients proactive by providing diagnoses and treatments for possible breathing challenges due to asthma.
- Developmental Screening or ADHD
The developmental screen gives a chance for Dr. Jones to assess the child’s gradual growth from one stage to the next. Some of the aspects she examines include:
- Adaptive skills.
- Fine motor skills.
- Problem-solving skills.
- Gross motor skills.
- Sports and Injuries Concussions
Injuries causing damage in children are common occurrences. Some of the treatments she offers are on conditions like:
- Muscle strains and sprains.
- Knee injuries.
In some instances, she also handles concussions due to a child suffering from a blow or a fall on the head, causing trauma. Scenarios such as concussions have symptoms such as dizziness, blurred visions, and headaches.
- Strep Throat And Ear Infections
Ear infections accrue from viruses or bacteria from flu or cold gain entry to the ear. The germs settle at the middle ear, causing inflammation affecting the eardrum, causing pain, or even difficulty hearing. Dr. Carrie performs diagnoses, prescribes antibiotics, and even cleans the ear from germs.
Eczema is a severe skin condition due to contact with irritants or allergens. The cause of eczema could be sweating, stress, allergies, fabrics, and soaps.
Perpetual well-checks are essential since they help the child and the doctor to detect any possible disease in its nascent stages, and treatment administration to start immediately to curb the situation.
Dr. Carrie spends her free time with her daughter, 3 sons, and husband Richey. She is a great baseball and basketball fan. You can often find her cheering her three sons on the baseball field or cheering her daughter on the basketball court.
