Routine Pediatric Care

Please try to schedule these well-­‐child routine_pediatric_care500pxvisits when your child is well! A sick child is often not cooperative, and we only do shots when a child is well. Please call several days or weeks in advance for a well-­‐child checkup. We are very busy with school physicals at the end of July and early August.
