Our Updated Services 

Our pediatrics team is now offering video/phone and in-person appointments.

When you call to make an appointment, we will let you know whether a video/phone or in-person appointment will work best for your child’s care needs.

To keep you and your child safe during an in-person visit, our team has taken the following steps:

  1. Our pediatrics office is now divided into a sick side and a well side.
  2. Patient visits are spaced out so no one is waiting in the waiting room. We will bring you to an exam room right away.
  3. Our staff is masked and we will ask you to wear one too.

We are seeing newborns and doing well-baby visits for all patients under 18 months in our office. 

Please stay on schedule with your child’s vaccinations!
