Our Vaccine Philosophy

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.

Well-Child Visits:

To keep your children healthy, it is important to schedule regular checkups. We recommend calling 2-3 month(s) in advance in order to choose the best date to fit for your scheduling needs. To remain as part of our practice, your child is required to be seen yearly. Otherwise, you're not considered a patient and may have to return on the waiting list in order to reenter the practice. Below is our well-check guide along with when and what vaccines are given. Should you have questions, please call the office for further clarification.
