When should I visit?

We prefer that you call and request an appointment whenever possible. We also understand that children cannot wait for an appointment when they are ill.  However, a phone call to alert us of any desired office visit is always preferred. Furthermore, it is strongly recommended that you follow the preventative health care guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics and make appointments for your child at least as follows:

  • 3-5 Days after Birth
  • 2 Weeks
  • 2 Months
  • 4 Months
  • 6 Months
  • 9 Months
  • 12 Months
  • 15 Months
  • 18 Months
  • 24 Months
  • 30 Months
  • Every year until 18 Years of Age
