Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns prior to your visit. 

Newborn Visit and 1 Month Visit

Congratulations on the birth of your child! This is an exciting and exhausting time for you and your family. We wish to check in with you within the first week of birth, establish your child as our patient, and ensure your baby has a positive start in the world. During your newborn visit, we will weigh your baby and measure height and head circumference. A nurse will obtain a full health history of your family and the pregnancy of your child. One of our providers will then perform a complete physical examination and discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding growth and development. You may need to be seen for weight checks until we are reassured your child is gaining weight appropriately.

2 Months - 9 Months Visits

You and your baby may have developed a nice daily and weekly routine by now. We will see you at 2, 4, 6, and 9 months for well child check ups. At each of these check ups, we will weigh and measure your baby, discuss any concerns you may have regarding growth and development, and perform a complete physical examination of your baby. Development is extremely important during this phase of your baby's life and we will have you fill out an Ages and Stages Questionnaire which evaluates development at each age. Vaccinations also begin at 2 months and your baby will receive CDC recommended vaccines at each well child check up. At the 9 month visit, we will also perform a toe prick to obtain blood for a CBC to check iron levels. 

12 Month Visit

Your baby is now a year old! Congratulations! The 12 month check up includes weighing and measuring your child's height and head circumference. The provider will perform a complete physical examination and answer any questions you may have about your child's health. The provider will continue to monitor your child's development. Your child will receive CDC recommended vaccines along with a toe stick for CBC and lead evaluation.
