SouthCoast Health: Schedule your child’s annual well-check now before busy back-to-school time

Monday, June 10th, 2024

SouthCoast pediatrician on the importance of your child’s annual well-checks

Annual wellness exams are critical in maintaining the health and happiness of your child, and knocking these out at the beginning of the summer versus at the end avoids many potential problems.

“Our offices become so hectic at the end of the summer when school is about to begin again. Because of this we always encourage parents to bring their kids in at the beginning of the summer to avoid the back-to-school rush,” SouthCoast Health pediatrician Dr. David Mozer said. “This also ensures the child and parent have more quality time with their pediatrician and gives parents peace of mind through summer months usually filled with lots of travel.”

Check out these four main reasons the proactive approach is best.

SouthCoast Health: The Role of Genetics in Alcohol Dependence

Tuesday, April 9th, 2024

Risk factors for developing Alcohol Use Disorder include genetics

Everyone who consumes alcohol regularly should be on the lookout for signs of misuse. Your risk is indeed higher if you have a parent or grandparent who has or used to have Alcohol Use Disorder, but AUD can affect anyone who drinks, according to SouthCoast Health medical experts.

Like certain cancers, certain genes increase your risk of developing AUD.

Whether you have several of these risk factors or none at all, there are things you can do to maintain a healthy relationship with alcohol. There’s always the option to abstain altogether. But if you choose to continue drinking, find some tips here.

Knowing your family medical history is important for helping doctors establish a clear and comprehensive snapshot of your whole health. Whether you have a family history of AUD, are concerned about your consumption, or just need a check-up, SouthCoast Health providers are here to help you take care of yourself at every age.

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician: “Life with a family member with autism”

Saturday, March 23rd, 2024

Life with a family member with autism

To commemorate World Autism month, SouthCoast Health pediatrician, L. Nelson Elam, M.D., FAAP shares an essay written a couple years ago by his eldest son, Simon, that captures his family’s unique journey with an autistic family member.

“The essay describes my son’s experience as an older brother and our family’s journey,” explains Dr. Elam, whose younger son has autism. “Although our experience may be different than most, it is still important to tell. The saying ‘If you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism’ is certainly true. Every autistic individual you meet is unique.”

Read the full essay, Life with Lucas, here. Some names have been changed to protect privacy.

If you suspect or are concerned your child may have autism, SouthCoast Health pediatricians are here to assist you and your family. A specialist at SouthCoast Health can provide you with the guidance and support you need. To make an appointment click here, or call 912-691-3600 to learn more.

SouthCoast Health: Understanding Autism Signs

Sunday, March 17th, 2024

SouthCoast Health Savannah Richmond Hill pediatricians

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam

One in 59 American children have autism, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“Unfortunately, many still view autism negatively and those with autism suffer from the biased opinions of others,” said SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Dr. Nelson Elam. “This is largely in part of lack of knowledge. Believe it or not, there’s a lot to learn about autism and from those who may be on the spectrum. The biggest thing to understand is that autism is just another way of living and another perspective in this diverse world.”

To help spur positive conversation about autism, SouthCoast Health shares the basics of autism including the definition of autism; signs of autism; and the autism diagnosis process.
