Finding a pediatrician who speaks Persian isn't always easy. If you aren't fluent in English, it can be difficult to communicate your concerns about your child's health or ask questions to a physician in San Jose. Mina Sehhat, M.D. is a Persian-speaking pediatrician, who can communicate with parents and caregivers in your native language. She treats children from birth through adolescent and offers a variety of services, including:

Well baby and child examinations

Visiting the pediatrician on a regular basis is an important part of ensuring that your child remains healthy and develops on schedule. These examinations also offer the perfect opportunity to ask questions about your child's health and request guidance about medical or behavioral issues. If Dr. Sehhat does notice any issues, she'll discuss them with you and explain her diagnosis and treatment recommendations fully. In some cases, she may order diagnostic tests or refer your child to a specialist.

Immunizations

Immunizations protect your child from common communicable diseases that can make him or her very sick or lead to severe illness or death. Although immunizations sometimes cause mild side effects, such as a low fever, their benefits clearly outweigh these minor symptoms. At various points in your child's life, his or her pediatrician may recommend these immunizations:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Varicella (chicken pox)
  • Polio
  • Diptheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Meningitis
  • Human papilloma virus
  • Influenza
  • Haemophilus influenza type B
  • Sick visits

When your child is sick or hurt, it's only natural to feel worried and upset. Unfortunately, if you have difficulty understanding or speaking English, you may feel even more stressed by the situation. Since Dr. Sehhat speaks Persian, there is no communication barrier. During your visit, she'll share her diagnosis and take the time to explain medication dosages or other treatment options before you leave the office.
