WELL

VISITS

Preventive care is an essential part of your child’s total health care and these visits are important even when your child is healthy. During wellness visits, the physician will assess how your child is growing, administer immunizations, and discuss any questions you may have regarding their health.

 SICK

VISITS

We make every effort to schedule appointments for sick children on the same day that you call. It is best to call in the morning if your child needs to be seen that day. We begin answering the phone at 8:00 AM and the first appointment is available at 9:00 AM.

TESTS & CULTURES

Routine tests, such as strep, flu, RSV, and rapid covid-19, are administered in our office at the time of the visit. For tests that further analysis, we send cultures to Labcorp and Quest Labs. Results typically take 3-4 days to return and we call you to notify you once we receive them. 

SPECIALTY

SERVICES

Our providers are trained to handle and manage issues your child may encounter, including but not limited to: ADHD, asthma, dieting and weight, behavior, allergies, injury prevention, etc. If a referral to a specialist is necessary, we will facilitate and organize this referral for your child.
