Living near the city can seem hectic and stressful, but if you find the right spot, you can get the perfect balance of both. If you've settled down in Sleepy Hollow, your family has found that perfect spot. Just a short commute from Washington D.C., this community offers the perfect blend of small-town charm and big-city convenience. When living near the city, it's important to have a primary care provider for your family.
The practitioners at Capital Area Pediatrics are proud to offer both well and sick care for your children across five locations in Northern Virginia. At each of our locations, our board-certified practitioners will provide comprehensive care for your family and ensure that your children develop into healthy adults.
Finding The Right Provider
If you are looking for a primary care provider in Sleepy Hollow, Capital Area Pediatrics has got you covered. At our Sleepy Hollow location, as well as our other locations, your family can receive definitive care for things like:
- Chronic Conditions - If your child suffers from a chronic condition like asthma, chronic headaches, skin conditions, and more, our primary care physicians can offer long-term, specialized care to help them manage their condition and stay in good health. We can also coordinate care and refer your child to specialists in our trusted network if needed.
- Diagnosis of Learning & Attention Disorders - Many children struggle with learning and attention disorders that can make life harder for them both in and out of the classroom. These neurologically-based processing problems can interfere with a child's ability to read, write, or solve math problems, and may also make it difficult for children to master skills such as organization, time planning, and abstract reasoning. Our providers have experience in diagnosing simple, common disorders and problems. If we feel an additional opinion is needed, we can refer your family to a trusted partner for an in-depth evaluation. Additionally, we are proud to provide support and resources to every family who visits us.
- Sick visits - While you make every effort to ensure your child's health, they will likely get sick from time to time. When your child feels under the weather, you can bring them in for a sick visit with their primary care provider. During a sick visit, your CAP primary provider can diagnose common illnesses in your children such as a cold or the flu, abdominal pain, mild injuries like sprains and strains, and more. In non-emergency situations, it is best to visit your child's primary care provider instead of visiting the ER or urgent care center. Not only does it come with financial incentives as it is a less expensive option than visiting urgent care, but your child's primary care provider knows them best. This allows them to offer more comprehensive, targeted care.
- Sports Physicals - If your child is involved in sports at school, they are most likely going to need a sports physical. A sports physical is a physical exam conducted by a health care professional to evaluate whether a child is healthy enough for physical activity. During this physical, your primary care provider will examine your child's medical history and address any health concerns or medical conditions that could prevent them from participating in their chosen sport. The local school district (Fairfax County Public Schools) requires students to have completed a physical exam and school-required forms after May 1 for the upcoming school year, so you will want to bring your child in for a sports physical before the season starts.
- Mental Health - As children grow and develop, they often go through different emotional challenges. While this is normal, if emotional or behavioral issues persist, it could be a sign of a more serious issue. Anxiety and depression are the most common mental disorders diagnosed in children and teenagers. If you believe your child is struggling with their mental health, your primary care provider can help. The practitioners at Capital Area Pediatrics can assist in making a diagnosis, and providing treatment options for common mental health conditions.
At Capital Area Pediatrics, we treat patients as a part of our family. The primary care providers at each of our locations have your family's best interest at heart and will work hard to ensure the overall health of your children. Just like knowing where the nearest emergency room is, finding out who your trusted primary care practices are should be one of the first things you do when you settle down in your new home. Capital Area Pediatrics is happy to be that safe place for your family at each of our five locations across Northern Virginia. You can visit our Sleepy Hollow location at 6565 Arlington Boulevard, Suite 210, Falls Church, VA 22042, or schedule an appointment online.
