We provide important health maintenance services for children of all ages and take care of infant, childhood and adolescent illnesses. Health maintenance visits include regular physical exams, immunizations, and the monitoring of growth and development. We also review your child's school performance, psycho-social development, and the well being of your family. Our practice promotes regular check-ups and prompt treatment of illnesses to prevent health problems in accordance with the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
As a practice we know that preventive care including vaccinations is the most important part of our service to our patients and families. To best protect your children, our other patients, as well as our staff and providers from vaccine-preventable illness, we have made the decision to only accept families into our practice who plan to fully vaccinate their children according to the CDC/American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines. The full pediatric (birth - 18 years) schedule is available by clicking here. Current families will be encouraged to completely vaccinate their children in a timely manner, with vaccine appointments readily available for all families.
Pediatric nurse practitioners are an integral part of our practice. They perform health maintenance examinations, visit newborns at the hospital, and provide limited, supervised care for minor illnesses. They have extended specialized post-graduate education and are highly trained to examine children and counsel parents on growth and development.
If you are entering the practice as the parents of a newborn, your first encounter with our practice will be in the hospital. Our physician will review the hospital records and do the initial exam on your newborn. You will be visited by a physician and pediatric nurse practitioner during your hospital stay.
