What about immunizations? We strongly support infant and childhood immunizations. Our modern immunizations have greatly improved the health of our infants, children, and teens. We follow the CDC's current immunization guidelines. Many unsubstantiated rumors exist about childhood vaccines. These rumors are usually found on the internet. If you have questions about rumors or issues you've read about on the internet, please contact us and we can address your concerns.


I'm worried about my child's weight. What can you do? Nutrition is a very important issue that we will address at each of your child's well-visits, starting at birth. We believe in a pro-active look at nutrition to prevent problems down the road.


My child is struggling in school.  What can you do?  We coordinate evaluations for students with academic struggles.  This includes a full medical evaluation and we work in conjunction with local psychologists who provide a full psychometric evaluation of the child's cognitive patterns.  We can help with medication if needed.  We also coordinate with pediatric neurologists, pediatric sleep specialists, & pediatric psychiatrists for patients needing more detailed care or evaluations.
