How often should my child see the pediatrician?
Your child should NOT only see the pediatrician when he/she is sick. Your doctor's office will schedule well child exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Well child exams are essential for monitoring your child's social, psychological and nutritional development.
Why does my child need to receive vaccinations?
Vaccines protect against the spread of disease and saves lives. We recommend following the CDC schedule of childhood vaccinations in order to fully protect your child. If you are apprehensive about vaccinations, please speak with your child's pediatrician.
How often does my school-aged child need a physical?
Your child should have a physical exam by a pediatrician each year. This exam is an important part of your child's health care. A sports-specific physical exam is not a substitute for this important yearly examination.
How do I access the Patient Portal?
In Summer 2020, we switched to a new Patient Portal system. All patients will need register with the new system to access their portal. New patients can call the office to complete registration. Existing patients can request a registration PIN on the Patient Portal Registration page.
