We will see your child at regularly scheduled well care visits in infancy, as well as for any illnesses. The majority of childhood vaccines are given in this first year.

With the friendly faces of our staff, fish tanks in the waiting room, and story books in our exam rooms, we strive to make your toddler feel at ease during visits to our office.
Your child’s yearly well care visit is an important time to touch base with your pediatrician on all aspects of your child’s health and make sure immunizations are up to date.
Our expertise in pediatric care extends through the teenage years. We continue to be a medical home for your child through age 18, providing well care, sports physicals, and management of acute and chronic illnesses.
