Pediatric services

Your children deserve a medical provider who they can connect and feel comfortable with, while you need a provider who will be there to answer your questions and address your concerns. Our board-certified physicians and highly trained nurse practitioners have devoted their careers to family medicine. They provide all of the services you would find in a pediatrician's office with the added benefit of knowing your whole family.

Sick-child care

When you child is sick, you will be able to see a provider in our office quickly.We reserve same-day and next-day appointments for sick or injured patients whenever possible. If you need help or advice after hours, calling our office will get you in touch with our triage team who will determine if your provider needs to be contacted or if you should seek more immediate care.

No question is a silly question when it comes to your children's health! We are here to answer your questions and to help set your mind at ease.

Well-child care

Consistent preventive medical care gives you and your child a chance to get to know your provider, and gives your provider a chance to identify potential health, growth or development concerns before they become larger issues. It also allows your child to keep up with the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommended vaccine schedule (below).

The typical well-visit schedule for a child includes visits at the following ages:

  • 1 week
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 1 year
  • 15 month
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 30 months
  • Yearly ages three and after

School, sports and camp physicals

Our office regularly completes forms for school, sports and camp physicals. These forms can usually be completed at the same time as your child's annual checkup. If you have been given forms that you need completed for your child, please let us know ahead of time and bring those with you to your appointment.

If completing these forms requires additional screenings not included in your child's annual appointment, there might be an additional charge.


Your child should receive the annual flu shot and all standard childhood vaccines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Vaccines are extensively tested for safety and effectiveness before they can be given, and side effects are very rare. If you have any questions about vaccines, please feel free to ask those at your appointment.
