Infancy, childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood are delicate periods for a child. Well visits are an essential part to live a healthy life. It is important to keep up-to-date with your child’s visits and immunizations.
Routine Well Visits
Our pediatricians monitor your child’s growth to ensure they meet all milestones and benchmarks. We provide easy-to-follow care schedules for your child based on age, medical history, and other essential factors.
Well visits include:
- General screenings
- Lab work
When your child experiences a common illness, our pediatricians are available to treat your sick child as soon as possible in a compassionate, friendly environment. Patients can also access specialty clinicians should an illness require advanced diagnostic attention or care.
Immunizations and vaccinations are important to shield your little one against preventable diseases, such as whooping cough (pertussis) and measles, which can be extremely dangerous to your children. It is important to stay on top of your child’s immunization schedule by attending all your child’s well visits.
Minor Injury Care
Much like sickness, injuries tend to occur suddenly and without warning. If your child suffers a minor injury and requires medical attention, our pediatricians can apply the treatments needed for proper healing.View Service

- Well Visits
- Sick Visits
- Chronic Conditions

No matter where you are, you can rely on us for dependable pediatric care using our telehealth services. Our physicians consult with you via video conferencing to evaluate conditions, manage symptoms, and advise you on proper care—no office visit required!
How Does Pediatric Telehealth Work?

Ear piercing can be separated into two categories – infancy and “when they are old enough to ask for it.”
Infancy – Ear piercing during infancy is best done between 3 and 10 months. Before 3 months they are too young and after 10 months they are more active making the actual piercing more difficult.
Older children – Ear piercing after 10 months of age may be slightly more complex. Not only does the child have to ask for the piercing, but they have to sit still for the piercing as well. After 10 months we recommend 3-year-olds being the youngest. However, we can assess on a child-by-child basis depending on the individual.
Ear piercing is not covered by insurance.
We solely pierce ear lobes. We do not pierce the cartilage higher up on the ear as the risk of infection is too great. We do not pierce any other body parts.
We use the patented Medi-System which is only available in a physician’s office. The earring goes in and the backing goes on at the time of the piercing. The tiny “diamond” stud is surrounded by 24-karat gold and the only metal touching your child’s skin is titanium. This inert metal is the least likely to cause any kind of allergic reaction at the site of the piercing.View Service
