Parents are always welcome to visit our offices and meet the doctors prior to the birth of their child. These consultations provide a way for us to get to know you and provide any medical advice or preparation you might need at this time.
Visits and immunizations are scheduled according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics so that your baby receives the optimal medical attention at all stages of development. We offer lactation and nursing support as well as answer all questions about your newborn so you can feel assured that your baby is healthy and happy.
We see your child for regular check-ups on a schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. These visits vary from monthly after birth to annually for school-age children. The annual examination is a thorough, comprehensive review of your child's physical, emotional and social development, and we allow time for a detailed discussion of your concerns and questions.
Teenagers are given special time in addition to medical check-ups. We are available to discuss their specific concerns confidentially. We also consult with parents about their growing children and the issues surrounding adolescent development.
