When Should You See Your Pediatrician?

Here at Sacoto Pediatrics, we speak your language! 

Nothing is more important than finding a pediatrician that you trust to care for your child; however, it’s also just as important that you’re able to properly communicate with your child’s doctor when you have questions or concerns. If you are a native Spanish speaker, our Falls Church, VA, pediatrician Dr. Maria Sacoto understands just how important it is to have a doctor who speaks your language. After all, our doctor is also a native Spanish speaker.

We Provide Routine Checkups

Here at our Falls Church, VA, practice, our Spanish-speaking pediatrician provides regular wellness checkups and preventive care to children and teens of all ages. A pediatrician isn’t just there for you when your child is sick, they also provide your little one with continuous care, treatment and monitoring to prevent health problems from happening in the first place. Knowing that both you and your child can converse with our pediatricians during your child’s routine checkups can be incredibly comforting.

We Provide Urgent Care

We already know how stressful it can be when you’re dealing with a high fever or other health problems that require urgent treatment. The last thing you want to do is have there be a miscommunication or to not fully understand what’s going on with your child’s health. When urgent health matters arise, having a pediatrician that speaks Spanish is imperative. From ear infections and stomach bugs to pinkeye and urinary tract infections, we handle all non-life-threatening health problems.

We Put Your Mind at Ease

Again, even if you feel comfortable speaking English on a day-to-day basis, we know that understanding medical care and terminology in another language can feel daunting. Instead of feeling confused or just “hoping for the best”, we want families to be active participants in understanding their child’s medical care. By being able to talk to you in your mother tongue, we can help make nervous or worried parents feel more at ease at our practice.

We Can Provide a Second Opinion

If you turned to another pediatric practice and received a diagnosis or treatment plan that you’re not fully sure about, having a Spanish-speaking pediatrician can be invaluable. We provide second opinions about your child or teen’s medical care and we can also talk you through the entire treatment process so there is no confusion. You and your child should never feel like you’re in the dark when it comes to the health care they receive.
