Special Services

Services of Special Interests We Offer

In addition to providing general pediatric services, Akai Pediatrics concentrates on a few specific areas of interest. When your child faces medical issues, whether physical or emotional, it’s important to take them to a medical home where they feel comfortable and safe.

We see children through 21 years of age. Our teenage and young adult patients feel quite comfortable with us. We offer assistance for those facing issues such as sexually transmitted infections and substance abuse as well as emotional, academic, and behavioral problems.

We Concentrate in Behavioral Health Including



Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can result in issues at school or home. When a child has ADHD, it can be very difficult for them to focus and do schoolwork or interact with teachers and fellow students.



Children can face a wide range of anxiety issues. These can range from generalized anxiety and panic attacks to separation and social anxiety.



If your child seems sad or irritable for most of the day, or prefers social isolation, there’s a good chance they may be suffering from depression


Mood Disorders

Depression is one of the most common mood disorders encountered in general pediatric practices. Other mood disorders are screened for in our medical home via CHADIS and when identified, our families are assisted in accessing mental health specialists through our carefully created referral pathways



We will answer any questions on diagnosis and provide access to helpful resources.


Weight Problems & Obesity

Akai Pediatrics provides a comfortable, friendly environment for the discussion and management of obesity and weight issues. In these situations, it is important for your child to receive care and assistance from a team that devotes itself to achieving the highest level of health.
