SPONSORED: Arkansas Children’s Primary Care: Where Comprehensive Pediatric Care Meets Compassion

Presented by:

When a parent takes their child to an Arkansas Children’s Primary Care clinic, they receive comprehensive care. Medical experts are there for the everyday health needs of your children, whether it’s treating a fever, giving an immunization or referring to one of the specialty care physicians at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) in Little Rock for more complex needs.

“We see children of all ages, from 0 to 21, and take care of them and their illnesses, as well as talk to them about preventative guidance to prevent injury and illness,” says Laura Sisterhen, M.D., medical director of the General Pediatric Clinic at ACH and a professor in the department of pediatrics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. She has worked at ACH for 20 years. “I love seeing children smile, enjoying life and seeing them thrive.”

Arkansas Children’s provides consistent care across its six state-wide primary care clinics for sick and well visits, including Little Rock, Springdale, Rogers and Pine Bluff.

The ACH After-Hours Clinic in Little Rock treats non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses that need immediate attention and has evening and weekend appointments available.

Some common services provided at Arkansas Children’s Primary Care clinics include:

  • Diagnosis
  • Treatment and follow-up care for illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions
  • Preventative care: immunizations, sports/physical examinations, newborn screens, behavioral/mental health and child health maintenance
  • Telehealth appointments

A chronically ill child with subspecialty care needs has access to the vast network of providers and specialists at Arkansas Children’s Health System, as primary care physicians can consult with a specialist and have quick access to hospital resources. Lab work, X-rays and lung function testing are available in primary care clinics.
