Information About the Office
Regular visits are recommended for all children and teens to check on general health, growth and development, and to receive immunizations. These appointments should be made four to eight weeks in advance. If there are concerns, especially during the first few months, your doctor may recommend your child be seen more often.

We do our best to see our sick patients on the same day. Please call early in the day to help facilitate this.
Our self-scheduling tool is intended for simple health problems like sore throat, earache, cough, fever, rash, and common straightforward health problems.
You may only self-schedule a sick appointment if your child:
- is over six months of age
- only has one health problem
- has had symptoms fewer than three days
If your child falls outside this criteria, please call our office to schedule a sick appointment so we can better serve you.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, walk-in hours are temporarily suspended. Thank you for understanding.
