CPC Pediatrics 

While CPC has always had Family Practice Physicians who take care of patients from birth to geriatrics, Pediatricians have a focused education path that gives them special skills to take care of your child's health. 

CPC is excited to offer this extended service line to our comprehensive practice.  Dr. Mark Addison and Dr. Andrew Jones along with Leah Harris, CRNP are all taking new patients and are excited to provide this service in the Cullman community. 

What Does Your Pediatrician Do?

They'll see your child many times from birth to age 2 and once a year from ages 2 to 5 for "well-child visits." After age 5, your pediatrician will likely continue to see your child every year for annual checkups. They're also the first person to call whenever your child is sick.

To take care of your child, your pediatrician will:

  • Do physical exams
  • Give your child vaccinations
  • Make sure he/she meets milestones in growth, behavior, and skills
  • Diagnose and treat your child's illnesses, infections, injuries, and other health problems
  • Give you information about your child's health, safety, nutrition, and fitness needs
  • Answer your questions about your little one's growth and development
  • Refer you to specialists if they think your child needs expert care

How Does Your Pediatrician Work With Your Delivery Team?

Most hospitals ask if you have a pediatrician when you go in to deliver. Your baby's first examination may be with a hospital pediatrician or your chosen pediatrician. It depends on the hospital's policy and whether your newborn's doctor makes rounds there. If a hospital pediatrician checks your baby, they'll send your pediatrician notes about the exam.

After you leave the hospital, your pediatrician will see your baby 48 to 72 hours later, and regularly after that for checkups.
