Quality Care for Every Age, At Every Stage

When it comes to your children, you want the very best. At the Family Medicine Center, we provide children with comprehensive care from infancy through adulthood from providers who get to know them well.

We’ll provide your child with:

  • Annual health physicals
  • Sports check-ups
  • Illness and injury evaluations
  • Chronic disease screening
  • Emergency and after-hours care with 24-hour provider coverage.

We’re here to care for the youngest members of your family whenever it’s needed.

Family Pracitioners Focused on Family

Our family practitioners are committed to providing family-centered care. You know your child best and we encourage you to take a lead role on our team in shaping your child's care.

Illness Visits

If your child appears ill or you have a question or concern about your child, please call us. We can give advice and figure out the right visit if needed. We have same-day appointments as well as weekend hours for children who need to be seen.

When you first come to the office, a nurse or medical assistant will spend time with you and your child, asking questions and performing some procedures such as temperature taking.

The family practitioner will then examine your child. On some occasions, your child will be examined first by a medical student, then by a physician. If you are uncomfortable with this arrangement, or if you have any questions about the diagnosis or treatment, please let us know.

Well-Child Check-Ups

We believe that the best way to keep your child healthy is through regular well-child check-ups. It is during these office visits that we evaluate your child's growth and development, check hearing, vision and speech, promote good safety habits and injury prevention, discuss anticipated changes in your child's development and behavior, evaluate school readiness, prevent illness with immunizations, and explore questions or concerns you may have had about your child's health, growth, development or behavior.

Regular visits should occur at the following stages as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • 1 week
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 2 years
  • 30 month visit (2.5 years)
  • 3 years
  • Every year after that

Some children will need to be seen more or less frequently than these recommendations. If you feel that your child needs a schedule that differs from the one above, please discuss this with us.
