CONFIDENTIALITY - Your child's medical record is strictly private. Information will not be released to other parties without your written permission, except as delineated by state and federal laws.

Newborn consultation during pregnancy.
You may schedule a "meet and greet" appointment to ask any questions you have regarding the birth of your baby and what to expect.
Our pediatric providers are more than happy to meet with first time expecting parents before your child is born. This helps you and the provider to get to know one another, and to see if the pediatric provider is right for you and your baby.
Please contact our front office to schedule the "meet and greet".

Proper check-ups help ensure total wellness of your child. Newborns and infants need frequent check-ups during their first 2 years of life to ensure that they are growing and developing on track. Appointments are readily available. In addition, we will contact you as a friendly reminder when your baby is due for his or her next check-up.
During a routine well-baby checkup, your baby's height, weight, and head growth measurements will be taken. A complete physical exam will be done and anticipatory guidance provided. At your baby's 2 week check-up, a newborn screening will occur. Developmental screenings, routine vaccinations, nutrition assessment, dietary guidance, and screening blood work that is done in the office (at 9 months and 2 years of age) are also part of routine well-baby checkups.
A Healthy Future
The American Academy of Pediatrics developed a set of comprehensive health supervision guidelines for well-child care, called Bright Futures, for pediatricians to follow. The mission of Bright Futures is to promote and improve the health, education, and well-being of infants, children, adolescents, families, and communities.
"Well-child care is so important," stresses Dr. Tanner. "Taking your child to the doctor when he or she is feeling under the weather is simply not enough. The AAP recognized the need for a schedule of visits (see below) to the pediatrician because when you know a visit is approaching, you can prepare for topics of discussion. Starting the dialogue can lead to a healthier life for your child overall, and that is the ultimate goal."
Schedule of Visits: 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years old (24 months), and once every year thereafter for an annual health supervision visit that includes a physical exam as well as a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.
