At UCHealth Pediatric Care – Loveland, we love caring for children and truly enjoy seeing their smiling faces at annual well-checks. We enjoy working with their families to restore their smiles when they’re not feeling well.
Our board-certified pediatricians are all about children. We celebrate the uniqueness and good health of every child and we’re here for you.
We recognize that all children are different, so we provide individualized care by responding to the needs of every child who visits us. Our goal is to make a difference in the health and happiness of children and families in a friendly, non-intimidating environment.
Same-day sports physicals are available.
Immunizations for children
In our experience, a full set of vaccines administered according to the AAP/ACIP recommendations are vital to your child’s health and safety. We realize there is a lot of controversy about immunizations and navigating the information can be overwhelming.
If you have questions about the vaccines, how they work and if they’re necessary, be sure to talk with one of our board-certified pediatricians.
Concussions in children
A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head, or by striking the head on another object. It may result in a headache, confusion, or rarely even loss of consciousness, and the effects usually resolve in a few hours or days.
Our board-certified pediatricians recommend watching this video* Concussions 101, a Primer for Kids and Parents to understand a little more about concussions and the steps to take if you’ve had a sports-related concussion before you get back in the game.
The video encourages patients to “take care of that awesome brain” and we agree. Contact our office if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified Sun
Sun safety for children
Summertime means that it’s time for sunscreen. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about sunscreen and what the safest products are for children. At UCHealth Pediatrics, we like to keep it simple:
- Use hats, sunglasses and SPF clothing. Swim shirts help prevent sunburns on shoulders and necks
- Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+
- Use hypoallergenic sunscreen
- Reapply at least every two hours, especially when your kids are swimming or sweating
