We are happy to offer a variety of services to our community.
Same Day Care for Acute Illnesses
Same day appointments are available on a first come first serve basis for acute illnesses and most routine care, most days until 7pm. Often, if you can’t get in the day you call, then we can see you the following day. While you are waiting, you might want to check out FamilyDoctor.org or KidsGrowth.org for suggestions that may be helpful. Remember, it is usually helpful to drink lots of liquids when you are fighting an illness.
Prevention and Well Care
We perform a full spectrum of well exams including annual physicals, pap smears, well child/school physicals, sports physicals, and CDL physicals. We can advise you on cancer screening and illness prevention as well as healthy lifestyle choices. We perform a complete spectrum of sexual disease testing as well. Immunizations are not just for children.
We offer a full range of pediatric services including newborn/well child exams, immunizations, allergy injections, and repair of cuts and minor injuries. We encourage our parents to play an active role in these services. Our evening and Saturday hours are great for accommodating children who come home from school ill. A physician is available by phone after hours to answer questions about your child’s illness. Try KidsGrowth as a good source of general information.
Please refer to this medication dosing sheet to medicate your infant before they come in for their shots or if they aren’t feeling well.
We offer prenatal care for low risk pregnancies. Whenever possible preconception counseling, or talking with your provider before you get pregnant, is recommended. Women trying to get pregnant should plan a diet high in folic acid or start a prenatal vitamin to help avoid birth defects.
