Please call our office to schedule any appointments, and our front desk staff will accommodate your desired time to the best of their ability.

Recommended Well Baby, Well Child and Teen Physical Schedule

We see children at regular intervals in order to maintain your child's health and discuss your child's growth, development, nutrition and behavior.

  • First newborn visits should be scheduled 2 days after discharge from the hospital unless the hospital doctor recommends coming sooner.
  • Well Baby visits are scheduled at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months old.
  • Well Child visits are scheduled at 2, 2.5, 3, 4 and 5 years old. After your child starts school, we recommend that he or she continues to have a yearly check-up throughout his or her childhood and teenage years.
  • Many teens need a yearly physical to participate in high school sports, so please schedule your teen's appointment well in advance of any registration deadline.

Most insurance companies will not pay for more than one Well Child visit or Teen Physical every 12 months. Call our offices to schedule an appointment.

Immunizations

Immunizations are provided at regular intervals as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Download or print the recommended schedule.

Government Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) are given to parents before vaccinations may be given. 

If your child needs to come in for immunizations only, please call our offices to schedule an appointment.

Phone Advice

During regular office hours, our trained medical staff can assist in answering questions over the telephone. We welcome your questions and will do our best to answer urgent problems quickly and make necessary appointments for your child.

After-Hours Triage

After office hours, our on-call advice service provides phone advice or urgent care referrals. When your child needs medical help after hours, the nurse advisor will help you decide if your child needs home care, if he or she needs to be seen by a physician that night, or if he or she can be seen the next day. One of our pediatricians is always available for emergency care when the office is closed. Please call our office phone numbers if you need urgent medical advice. Phone assistance is available 24 hours a day. 

In a life-threatening emergency, you should go immediately to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

Meeting Expectant Parents

In both offices, we offer free “meet the doctor” visits to expectant parents. At these visits, you may come and see our offices and meet one of our doctors. Appointments are usually held at 5:30 p.m., after regular office hours. Please call our offices to make an appointment.

We look forward to meeting you and answering any question you may have about our office and the care of your newborn.
