PHYSICALS AND IMMUNIZATIONS
Here you will find information regarding well child checks and routine vaccinations. These check-ups are an important part of your child's healthcare and most of the time are offered at no cost to you. Although, insurances do vary, and this excludes other test or medicines your provider may order during your visit. We are constantly looking for ways to make these visits more convenient for you and you can check our announcements page for all upcoming changes.
WELL CHILD CHECKS
Below you will find a complete list for every well child check and physical your child will need. You will find links for routine guidance that will tell you everything you need to know to keep your child healthy. You will often find a milestone checklist beside younger ages. Going over this checklist before your appointment can be a good way to catch any delays early. Printing these forms and filling them out before you come can also help your appointment move more quickly and allow you to have more time to discuss the things that are most important to you.

At our clinic, we give all routine immunizations as recommended by the CDC. Vaccines are one of the most well studied and regulated parts of medical care provided. They are both safe and effective when given on the CDC recommended schedule. There has been no evidence to suggest that vaccines cause autism. Oftentimes, parents are concerned about the number of vaccines that their child will receive at one time. Rest assured that your child's immune system can handle these vaccines, and it is safe for them to do so. Delaying vaccination can put your child at unnecessary risk of illness or death. Of course, you are ultimately responsible for your child's health and we will continue to see you even if you choose to not vaccinate. However, we will continue to recommend vaccination at every visit. Below is a list of the vaccines that we offer at our clinic and links to further information about the vaccine. Your provider is always happy to talk to you about recommended vaccines and answer any questions you may have. Please let our staff know if you may be pregnant as some vaccines are not safe for your baby while pregnant.
