Thank you for choosing us to care for your child’s healthcare needs.
We strive to offer the best care for your child as they grow from infancy through adolescence.

We fully believe in the vaccine schedule and its inherent ability to protect our children and community.

We educate and follow evidence-based guidelines and in doing so do not recommend routine dispensing of antibiotics without seeing our patients.
|Medical home||We want to provide full medical care for your child and thus want to be contacted first to help facilitate specialty care or determine if your child needs urgent attention, an office visit, or supportive care at home.|
|Specialist care||As your medical home, we expect you to contact our office before scheduling a specialist appointment.
We want to be involved in coordinating your child’s care and ensure that your child is sent to the most appropriate specialist.
