Sleeping Bear Pediatrics has been my family's primary care center for over 10 years. Dr. Ross and his staff are warm, professional, and not only care about fulfilling my kids' medical needs, but also their overall well being. Dr. Ross is an exceptional pediatrician and I would recommend him for your child's medical care.

Dr Ross has helped keep me healthy and participating in the sports I love. He is always available upon short notice and gets me into a room with very little waiting time. I would highly recommend him as a pediatrician.
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.
