Well child visits include regular exams for babies and yearly physicals for older kiddos. These appointments can be made months in advance by calling the office.
We are usually able to accommodate any provider preference you may have.
We typically see children at the following ages:
When your child is ill, call to schedule an appointment with us. We are usually able to get your child in to be seen on the same day that you call.
Additionally, a triage nurse will usually be available to help decide the best plan of action in regards to watchful waiting, treatment ideas or more emergent evaluation.
After five pm, we utilize the Pediatric After Hours Triage program through Sacred Heart Children's Hospital, which staffs skilled pediatric nurses to take parent’s calls during all hours that we are not open. There is always a pediatrician from our call group available to help.
If you do not currently have any children who are seen by us, you can set up their accounts with the front desk when you call in to make their first appointment.
If you want to set up an account for a newborn, simply call the office after the child is born and set up an appointment. We typically see new babies within the first three to five days after birth. At this time, we will also enter your new child into our system, so there's nothing you need to do with us before you have the baby!
We understand that you want to make sure your child is being seen by caring providers at a quality practice, so feel free to drop by our office any time and take a look around.
