Well Child Visits

These visits allow you and your doctor to monitor the progress of your child as they advance from a newborn to a healthy teenager. You and your doctor will be able to see how your child has developed since their last visit. Your child gets their scheduled immunizations at the right stages to help prevent illness. Nutrition is discussed as a key element of preventive care, along with hearing and vision checks. Preventive care will help your child develop into a healthy, happy adult.

Same-Day Sick Visits

We make every effort to schedule appointments for sick children on the same day you call. Please call in the morning if you would like a same-day sick visit. When calling us to schedule your appointment, please provide us with all of your concerns so that we may triage the appointment appropriately. All visits are by appointment only. Please no walk-ins.

The Importance of Well Child Visits

In a baby’s first year, every month brings changes. During well-baby visits, our pediatricians will check for proper growth and development and answer your questions about eating, sleeping, and vaccinations.

Our doctors check your baby’s weight, length, and head circumference at each visit to ensure they’re gaining a healthy amount of weight and growing as expected.
At each appointment, you will learn if your child is meeting the developmental milestones established by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Important note for parents of newborns:
It is extremely important that you add your new baby to your health insurance policy once your baby is born. Most insurance plans have a 30-day grace period for newborns to be added. Once the grace period has expired, if the baby has not been added, the parent will be responsible for charges incurred.
