  5. Strabismus: misalignment of the eyes
  6. Amblyopia: lazy eye

The PediaVision Screening is not covered by all insurances. There is a $25 fee for testing. Please speak to your doctor to inquire and visit their website for more information:

Hearing Screens or otoacoustic emissions test (OAE)

Test that measures sound waves produced in the inner ear. A tiny probe is placed just inside the ear canal, which then measures the response when clicks or tones are played into a child's ear.

In-house labs

These labs include urine testing, blood testing and cultures. For our patient's convenience, we've partnered with Quest Diagnostics and BioReference Labs to provide more comprehensive testing. Specimen collection is done at our facility, shipped to the lab, and results are sent back to our office. This service eliminates the need to go to a testing center.

Spirometry

(Meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests, measuring lung function, specifically the measurement of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used in assessing conditions such as asthma.
