Well Visits

We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics for health supervision visits and immunizations. These visits typically take an hour or more. Please plan ahead, perhaps packing toys, books and a snack to keep your child happy. These well visits/physicals should be scheduled well in advance. We suggest that you schedule your child's next visit before you leave the office.
