Health Screening in Coppell, Texas
During your child’s well exams, Dr. Moemeka will perform a health screening to ensure your child is healthy. These screenings let Dr. Moemeka screen for possible diseases and illnesses before your child is showing symptoms. At Mark9 Pediatrics, our mission is to make healthy living as easy as possible, and prevention and early intervention is the key to making this possible.
Dr. Moemeka will screen for physical and mental illnesses so that she can provide early intervention treatment. Certainly the best way to treat illness is to prevent it, and health screening allows Dr. Moemeka to see things that are not yet obvious, consequently getting ahead of the illness and increasing the benefits of treatment.

During your child’s next exam, she will screen for the following:
- Childhood diabetes
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Treatable illness

Mental health screening
Dr. Moemeka will also screen for emotional distress and mental health problems. Mental illness is a serious problem that can be life-threatening if not treated appropriately. For this reason, if you are concerned about your child’s emotional or mental wellness, talk to Dr. Moemeka during your next appointment. She will screen for the following:
- Eating disorders
- Emotional distress
Screening for mental health problems is essential to keeping your child healthy. Not only does emotional health pose a danger to your child but may also impede his ability to take care of himself, participate in social circles, and can have physiological side effects.
