Upon visiting our pediatricians, you can expect a genuine, personable and sensitive approach to ensure your child is treated just as diligently as all of the babies we see. Our pediatricians will want to see your child at least six times before they turn one year old. Subsequently, the preferred schedule is once every four months until they turn two years of age. These frequent visits with our pediatricians are essential to ensure your baby is developing and growing as they should. Included in these visits are your baby’s critical vaccinations and screening for any potential challenges including diseases.
These frequent visits also are a time when you can ask as many questions as you would like with our pediatric professionals. We find that new parents find this time extremely beneficial. We will not only counsel you on best practices for taking care of your baby, but also on taking care of yourself especially post-pregnancy related issues or challenges.
Between the ages of two and five, your pediatrician will keep track of the development of your child while providing vital immunizations and continued screenings. During these stages of development, our pediatricians will see your child annually unless directed otherwise. We will also provide you with guidance on healthy eating habits for your children as well as advice pertaining to the improvement of their sleeping habits, potty training and more.
After the age of five, our pediatricians will continue to see your child annually for a wellness checkup. Routine screenings will be completed upon visits to evaluate any potential onsets of adult diseases.
