Family Care Medical Center
Today was my first time at this office and I have to say the staff is amazing ! Everybody I came in contact with were very polite and helpful. I have never been as happy with a doctor in my life as I was today with Dr. Helfand, he took his time, you can tell he really does care. He took the time to listen and answer all of my questions. I definitely found a doctor that I'm staying with. I think the service is amazing, I would highly recommend this place to anybody who is looking for a new doctor ! I'm very satisfied with the help and service I received today !

I had a surgical procedure done here with the specialities department. The surgeon and his nurse were superb. They made me feel so comfortable during my operation and the nurse was an absolute sweetheart! Timely and professional. If you need a surgical procedure done, I highly recommend this department!!!

Long wait time. Diagnosis issues. No follow up.
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.
