Well Child Office Visits
Keeping the well child well is one of the major goals of pediatrics. During a well-child visit, we are primarily concerned with observing growth and development, early detection of illness through screening and laboratory tests, immunizations, counseling and teaching parents, and getting to know one another. We recommend routine office visits as follows:
After the 3 year well-child visit, children are seen Once A Year For Well Care. The yearly visit also gives you a chance to ask questions about your child's physical development and behavior. It is your opportunity to ask questions and address any concerns that you may have. It helps to write questions down. Don't be afraid to ask questions about your child's progress even though these questions may seem trivial. MAKE SURE YOUR QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED AND YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE FULLY INFORMED ABOUT OUR FINDINGS AND OPINIONS.
Please call in advance to schedule well care.
Sick Child Office Visits
We have open appointments for sick children each day and will not turn away a patient of ours who we feel should be seen that day Our nurses will triage when our schedule is full so that no one whose illness requires them to be seen that day is turned away. Please tell the appointment secretary the nature of your problem so that appropriate time may be allotted. During a sick child visit we limit our counseling to the problem at hand.
