The Office Experience
At ADC, we understand a trip to the pediatrician may be a frightening experience for your child.
We provide a comfortable, bright and cheery office for your children and ease their anxiety about the visit from the moment they walk in the door; and with separate well and sick waiting rooms available, we try to reduce the stress of coming to the office.
Our Austin pediatric clinics recognize that a friendly, patient-centered staff is an integral part of the services we provide.
Our team is made up of dedicated medical professionals that have the knowledge, experience, and ability to provide the very best care for your child. From our front desk staff to your nurse and pediatrician, we try to exceed your expectations at each visit.
The Austin Diagnostic Clinic pediatricians are medical staff members at Dell Children’s Hospital, St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, St. David’s Main, St. David’s South Austin Medical Center, and Seton Medical Center.
The pediatricians at ADC want to work with all patients and their families to ensure a lifetime of good health. We believe that vaccines are an essential component of good preventive medicine.
Because we must protect the health of all of our patients, including those who are too young or too ill to be fully immunized, we cannot accept families who choose not to immunize their children.
If you have questions or concerns about your child’s immunization status, we encourage you to discuss this with your child’s pediatrician.
ADC pediatricians follow the vaccine schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control. The MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine is given at one year of age with a booster dose at 4 years old.
There are currently no recommendations to deviate from this schedule or give early doses of the MMR vaccine outside of specific travel circumstances (mainly international travel). Any vaccines for travel need to be given 4-6 weeks prior to travel.
If you have further questions about this, you may schedule an appointment with your child’s physician. If you have questions about your own vaccination status, please contact your physician’s office.
For questions regarding international travel vaccines please contact the ADC Travel Clinic.
