I had problems with a blocked ear for three days. Tried to self-medicatebut to no avail (I don't go to doctors unless absolutely necessary) . I was able to get an appointment in short order and pleasantly surprised by the courteous and efficient staff--I was not kept waiting--Jennifer and her staff took care of my problem-- plus I also discovered that my blood pressure was very high. (meds were prescribed) I am grateful. I give Affordable Health Care high marks and commend them to you without reservation. John March

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.
