Prenatal Visits
A prenatal visit is recommended by American Academy of Pediatrics for all expectant families as an important first step in establishing a relationship with your child's medical provider. During the prenatal visit, you will tour our office and we will go over any questions you may have. We are looking forward partnering with you on the most exciting journey of parenthood. Please call today to set your prenatal visit.
Newborn Care
Your baby's well check-ups are planned to coincide with the recommended schedule of immunizations at each visit until 18 months of age. Our office follows the well-child visit schedule as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (newborn, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months, 36 months, and once a year thereafter). It is important for the well-being of your child that these visits be scheduled on time. At each well visit, your child's development, height, weight, diet, behavior and medical status will be discussed with you. Recommendations and suggestions will be given to you to advise you until the next well visit. At each well visit, from newborn up to 18 years of age, you will receive a handout with health and safety tips appropriate for your child's age.
Well-Child Care Exams
Scheduling regular well-child visits is very important to your child's health. Well-child visits serve to track you child's development and growth, administer recommended vaccinations, detect potential health problems, and allow you the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have with your child's doctor.
Sick Child Diagnosis and Treatment
As parents and pediatricians, we understand how the first symptoms of sickness (whether it's the common cold or something more serious), put you on alert. We also know that children don't just fall ill during business hours.

Annual health supervision exam that includes a physical exam, Vision and Hearing screen, laboratory testing if appropriate as well as developmental, behavioral and learning assessment
Dietary and Nutrition Guidance
We look at individual patient and offer dietary and physical activity recommendations for healthy children, discuss the current content of children's diets, review the adverse health consequences of increased intakes of calories (relative to energy expenditure), saturated and trans fat, and cholesterol and provide age-specific guidelines for implementation of the recommended diet, including the period from before birth to 2 years of age
Adolescent Counseling Services
We will evaluate children and teens whom have been referred for mental health treatment because of problems at school, work, or home. For example, it is used to find out if a child has learning disabilities or behavior disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder (CD), or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). We can also assess for anxiety or depression and help you with community resources.
Health Maintenance Services
Regular annual office visits for adolescents are important to prevent illness and promote a healthy lifestyle. There are many physical and developmetal changes and challenges during the adolescent years. Our goal as your child's pediatrician is to guide your child during this developmental period and to promote your child's own interest in his or her health and well-being. During adolescent health maintenance visits, adolescent risk-taking behaviors and prevention will be discussed. To respect your child's privacy, we will ask you to leave the room for part of the adolescent visit to discuss any questions your teenager may have for us. After the exam, we will bring you back into the room to review our findings and address any questions or concerns you may have for your child. We strongly believe that adolescents should continue to see their pediatrician through the college years. As your child's pediatrician, we not only have the necessary expertise in adolescent health and well-being, but also a long-standing relationship of trust with your child.
