We do our best to schedule prenatal visits so that you can meet more than one doctor at the same time. This visit is a great opportunity to ask the doctors any questions you may have, tour the office and meet our wonderful staff.
We enjoy seeing our patients during these regular visits, building personal relationships with both the children and their parents. Complete check-ups usually includes immunizations. We follow the schedule recommended by the AAP but we will work with families that request minor modifications. You can find more information about immunizations on Immunize.org.
If you feel your child needs to be seen, you can schedule an appointment by calling the office during the business hours. We do everything possible to see sick children the same day. Scheduling appointments helps us with decreasing waiting times and getting you home sooner.
Our office does not accept walk-in appointments. However, if you do walk in, we will need to impose a $75.00 charge.
