SICK CHILD VISITS
Parents don’t usually know in advance when their children will get sick. Somehow it always seems to come on at the least convenient times. We know this because we’re parents, too.
Each visit includes a complete physical exam. At this exam, the health care provider will check the child’s growth and development in order to find or prevent problems.
The flu vaccination is the single best way to prevent your child from getting the flu. Each year, we give the most up-to-date vaccination to decrease the chances of the flu in your home.
As a parent of a sick child, you don’t have time to wait. We’ll do our best to make sure that you don’t have to. We offer in-house lab testing to get results back to you in a timely manner.
You’re on a wonderful journey as a new parent. We look forward to providing you and your child with our services of well-child care, sick-child care and parenting expertise.
SCHOOL & SPORTS PHYSICALS
Children and teenagers often require a physician to complete a pre-participation physical exam for school admission, sports and camps. Our pediatrics team can get you in quickly.

Asthma, Bronchiolitis, ear infections, colds, diabetes, conjunctivitis, allergies, ADD/ADHD, strep throat, fever and flu.
