We offer well child checkups from birth through 21 years of age. These visits are critical to the health of your child, as they are the time when the doctors can ensure your child is maintaining the best health and detect any unnoticed problems. This is also when they will receive necessary immunizations. Click here to learn more about the immunizations your child will be getting. Routine screenings and procedures conducted during well child visits include:
- Computerized vision screening (SPOT Vision)
- Fluoride varnishing for infants 6 months of age until 3 years of age
- Hearing screening for children of 3 years of age and above
We are happy to conduct school and sports physicals for your children. Please make sure to bring any necessary forms with you to the visit, with the parent section completed. We will complete the form within 2-5 days of drop off. Forms often accumulate and can be time consuming, so we charge a $10 fee per form.
We realize your child can become sick at any time, so we offer same day appointments for sick children with complaints of cough, cold, wheezing, infections, injuries, abdominal pain, and other concerning symptoms.
Walk-in appointments are accepted. Depending on availability, we will see your child as soon as we can.
We have an on-site lab to aid in quick diagnosis of flu, strep throat, and RSV, and to conduct hemoglobin and urinalysis testing. We also provide in-office treatment of acute asthma attacks and utilize tympanometry to aid in proper diagnosis of ear infections.

A tongue tie can have a negative effect on the overall breastfeeding experience for both baby and mother by reducing the newborn’s satisfaction and causing varying degrees of pain to the mother. It may also affect a child’s pronunciation of certain letters in later stages of development. Tongue ties can be clipped in a short procedure performed in the exam room, resulting in relief of symptoms and an improved breastfeeding experience for both mother and baby.
