Pediatric services provide care to children from newborns to young adults up to 21 years of age. We understand that by educating young patients and their families, we encourage them to make healthy decisions together.
Our approach to pediatric care is rooted in understanding your child's unique needs, questions, and concerns. Whether it’s a routine check-up, management of chronic illness such as asthma, or diagnosis of behavioral disorders such as ADHD, our pediatricians are here to listen and provide expert guidance every step of the way.

Well-child visits are routine visits starting from newborn to 3 years of age where parents partner with the pediatrician to monitor their child’s growth and development, and ensure their immunizations are up to date. After 3 years of age, the frequency of these visits decreases to an annual physical exam including developmental, behavioral, and learning assessments.
In order to ward off serious and potentially fatal childhood diseases, it’s important to ensure that your child receives their immunizations when scheduled. Immunizations are a series of shots given to infants and children at different ages and are the best way to help protect your child.
As your child’s primary caregiver and advocate, you are the most important person to nurture and support their growth and development. Taking part in your child’s daily life activities can improve physical health, enhance social functioning, and reduce behavioral problems, which is essential for the future success of your child.
