Well-child check-ups

You want the very best for your child and that’s why we recommend following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for well-child check-ups. At each exam we’ll check your child’s growth, well-being and development as well as offer guidance on nutrition, sleep, safety and other important topics. These visits are a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions about your child’s health.

Schedule of exams and immunizations

This schedule of preventive care and immunizations helps you know what to expect and prepare your child at each age.

Reliable vaccine resources

Be well informed. If you have questions, talk with your pediatrician about the benefits and potential risks to vaccines, and to get accurate vaccine information. If you want to do more research, use these reliable vaccine resources from trusted experts including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and American Academy of Pediatrics.

Children’s Comfort Promise

Taking the scary out of needles isn’t impossible. That’s why we’ve made a promise to our patients. We call it Children’s Comfort Promise. It means we will do everything possible to help prevent and treat pain.

Evidence supports that if we always use the following 4 steps, children will have less pain with needle procedures (like immunizations, lab draws or IV starts).

  1. Numb the skin
  2. Sugar water or breastfeeding (for babies 12 months or less)
  3. Comfort positioning
  4. Distraction

This is just one of the ways we go above and beyond for the most amazing people on earth.
