My child has been here 3 years too long. The pros are you are able to get in rather quickly with same day appointments & the staff is very friendly. The cons are you will be waiting 2-3 hours whether you have a scheduled appt or not, and when it comes to illnesses there isn't alot of tests done, rather many prescriptions written. They don't even know our names after being with their cllinic so long, I guess they have their "picks & chooses"

This place is amazing. It's a resident's clinic so you may not see the same physician each time but they are so thorough. The wait is hardly ever long at all and the staff is exceptional!

Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
