Our practice is geared towards meeting the entire spectrum of health care needs for your children.
If you have any questions regarding your child’s symptoms, condition, medication, or treatment, you can call during our business hours where the phone calls will be returned in order of acuity by our experienced Registered Nurses. If the nurse feels there is a problem that the doctors should be aware of, they will consult with one of the doctors for further advice.
If you desire to speak to one of the doctors directly, the staff will leave a message for the doctor to call you back. Please be aware that the doctors may not be able to return your call until they are finished with seeing patients.

We feel that vaccines are one of the best ways to keep your children healthy and strongly believe that they are safe and efficacious. We follow the vaccine schedule recommended by the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and have scheduled the well visits to coincide with the vaccine schedule. If you have any questions or reservations about the vaccines or the schedule, we would be happy to discuss them with you.
