Q: What is a Pediatrician?

A: A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Pediatricians have undergone special training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens and young adults, and the majority of pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics after passing a comprehensive exam.

Pediatricians provide preventive health care for children in good health and medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. They also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.

Q: How often should my child see the pediatrician?

A: Your child should not only see the pediatrician for an illness. It is also important to schedule well-child-care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Also called well-care visits or checkups, these routine examinations provide the best opportunity for the doctor to observe the progress of your child's physical and mental growth and development; to counsel and teach parents; to detect problems through screening tests; to provide immunizations, and to get to know one another. Well-care visits are strongly recommended as part of preventive pediatric care.

Well-child visits are also a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child's development, behavior, nutrition, safety and overall well-being.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends this schedule for routine well-care visits:

  • 3 to 5 days
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 30 months
  • 3 years
  • 4 years
  • And once every year thereafter for an annual health supervision visit that includes a physical exam as well as a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.

Q: Is your office accepting new patients?

A: Yes, we always welcome new patients. Contact our office for additional information or request an appointment.

Q: Why does my child need to receive vaccinations?

A: Immunizations are a series of shots given to children at different ages to help ward off serious, and potentially fatal, childhood diseases. Making sure your child receives immunizations when scheduled is the best way to help protect your child from potentially fatal diseases. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, vaccinations have reduced the number of infections from vaccine-preventable diseases by more than 90%. If you're apprehensive about vaccinations, please do not hesitate to contact our office.

Q: How do I know if my child’s immunizations are up to date?

It is difficult to review all of your Immunization records over the phone, as not all staff are medically trained to determine your immunization status and the status of your immunization schedule may differ if catch up vaccines are required.

A: For yearly check ups (yearly physicals) we reserve time for 40 minutes. We reserve 20-40 minutes for sick appointments depending on your concerns.

We like to reserve enough time for each appointment because it is important to address all of your concerns fully.

Q: Does your office have an x-ray?

A: Our office does not have an x-ray machine. If an x-ray is required for your child, we will provide several x-ray locations or refer you to an urgent care.

Q: Can I schedule an appointment just to get shots?

A: If your child's annual check up is up to date (has had a check up within a year), then we allow shot-only visits. There may be a copay charge outside of the annual physical.

We do not offer/ carry any special traveling related vaccines outside of routine vaccinations (i.e. yellow fever, typhoid etc.)

Q: My child has other concerns I want to address during the yearly physical. Can we do both the check up and sick visits together?

A: Unfortunately, many insurance carriers do not cover check up and sick appointments (to address other physical and mental health concerns) at the same time. If you have any separate questions or concerns, please schedule a separate appointment. This ensures that an ample amount of time is given to each concern.
