Vision Screening

We recently purchased several SPOT Vision Screening tools to provide better, more comprehensive care for your child(ren).

Approximately 80% of a child's early learning is visual, yet according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vision disability is the single most prevalent disabling condition among children. Over 25% of school-age children have vision problems, the majority of which are undetected.

Spot Vision Screening allows PAGS to screen patients as young as 6 months old; children don't need to be able to speak, to read, or even to recognize letters for us to capture instantaneous, accurate results. We can detect near-sightedness, far-sightedness, blurred vision/eye structure problems (astigmatism), pupil size deviations, and eye misalignments, all within a few seconds, with this non-invasive, cutting-edge technology.

If you would like your child to be screened, please call the office to schedule an appointment and take advantage of this technology. If it's determined that follow-up care is necessary, we will provide families with a list of opthalmologists to whom we typically refer.

Hearing Testing

If you or your child’s school is concerned about your child’s hearing, feel free to schedule an appointment. PAGS uses the EroScan Pro - a hand-held device that detects and measures otoacoustic emissions, which are sounds produced by the cochlea. We are able to screen our patient’s hearing from newborn up, as no response from the patient is necessary; we can easily test non-English-speaking patients, as well. If the device identifies a possible hearing loss, and then we can refer to you to the proper specialist for more comprehensive testing should this be necessary.

Ear Piercing

PAGS also offers ear piercing for our current patients The $30 fee covers the cost of the hypo-allergenic stud earrings, the procedure, and the administration fee. Call and book an appointment to get your child's ear pierced in a safe, professional environment.

Translation Services

PAGS utilizes interpretive services and employs bilingual staff. We have staff and providers who speak Spanish, Portuguese, French and Farsi. We also have access to sign language interpreters.

PAGS News

PAGS is recommending that you purchase Advil or Motrin brand ibuprofen for your infant and avoid purchasing generic brands.  Infant ibuprofen destined to be sold at several national retailers might contain a higher concentration of ibuprofen, leading to potential risks in infants.
