Your health and the health of your growing baby is our number one priority. The two of you will receive personalized pediatric care services from one of our expert physicians, and your child’s electronic medical records will always be accessible to ensure complete continuity of care. Most expectant parents find it helpful to take advantage of our FREE prenatal consultation, to familiarize themselves with our team and discuss important issues before the baby is born.
A typical visit involves discussions of growth, nutrition, immunizations, development and safety, allowing you to become well-informed to make healthy choices for your child.
Regular office examinations occur at age 4 to 5 days, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. Our nurses are always available by phone, and we encourage you to call with questions or concerns as often as you need to.
Well-child visits should be scheduled at the following ages: 3 to 5 days (or as directed by your doctor in the hospital), 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, 2 1/2 years, 3 years, then annually.
We recommend that annual physicals be scheduled shortly after your baby’s birthday, this way it’s easy to remember when each child is due. We schedule up to 3 months in advance and appointments during the summer and school breaks fill up fast. It is inevitable that sometimes appointments will need to be cancelled or rescheduled, but please give us at least 24 hours notice for changes so that another patient can make use of that time.
After Hours Care
The office is closed and my child is sick. What should I do?
First, use the American Academy of Pediatrics online Symptom Checker as answers to most questions will be found here.
You may call the pediatrician on call for emergencies by dialing the regular office number. If necessary, the doctor will help you decide when to go to the emergency department and which hospital is appropriate.
For non-emergencies, we believe our patients get the best pediatric care services from doctors who know them the best and who have immediate access to their complete medical records. Urgent care centers are not able to offer this, and may be staffed by providers who do not have extensive training in pediatrics.
Remember, appointments in our office are available seven days a week and many evenings. If you’re not sure if your child can wait to be seen until the office reopens, we would recommend that you call us first anyway.
