How can our Pediatricians Care for Your Precious Gift?

From the moment your baby is born until they 2 years old, you will have frequent visits to our pediatricians to ensure your child is reaching all growth goals in their infant development milestones.  Up until your child is in school, you will bring your child to see our pediatricians at least once a year for well-care visits.  This allows our pediatricians to ensure your child is developing properly in terms of growth, skills, and behavior.

Other than maintaining the wellness of your child, our pediatricians are the first medical professionals to approach when your child has challenges.  Our pediatric services include but are not limited to the following:

  • Diagnosing and Treating Illnesses, Injuries, Infections and Other Health Issues
  • Ensuring Your Child Receives the Recommended Vaccinations
  • Performing Physical Exams
  • Providing You with Information Regarding Healthy Eating for Your Child
  • Giving Advice Pertaining to Your Child’s Fitness Needs, Safety and Health
  • Answering All Questions You Have Regarding Development of Your Child
  • Referral Services for Additional Medical Evaluation of Your Child if Necessary

Our pediatricians use the latest resources in the medical field to ensure they provide the absolute best possible care for your children from the newborn stage to early adulthood.  While our primary focus will always be on your child during your visits, we also advise parents who tend to have the greater challenges than the child regarding the reassurance of taking care of their precious babies.

At Lifespan, we understand how important it is for you to choose a great physician to care for your children. Our pediatricians have decades of combined experience and training in the emotional, physical, and behavioral care-taking for children from newborn to young adulthood.

Upon visiting our pediatricians, you can expect a genuine, personable and sensitive approach to ensure your child is treated just as diligently as all of the babies we see.  Our pediatricians will want to see your child at least six times before they turn one year old.  Subsequently, the preferred schedule is once every four months until they turn two years of age.  These frequent visits with our pediatricians are essential to ensure your baby is developing and growing as they should.  Included in these visits are your baby’s critical vaccinations and screening for any potential challenges including diseases.

These frequent visits also are a time when you can ask as many questions as you would like with our pediatric professionals.  We find that new parents find this time extremely beneficial.  We will not only counsel you on best practices for taking care of your baby, but also on taking care of yourself especially post-pregnancy related issues or challenges.

Between the ages of two and five, your pediatrician will keep track of the development of your child while providing vital immunizations and continued screenings.  During these stages of development, our pediatricians will see your child annually unless directed otherwise.  We will also provide you with guidance on healthy eating habits for your children as well as advice pertaining to the improvement of their sleeping habits, potty training and more.

After the age of five, our pediatricians will continue to see your child annually for a wellness checkup.  Routine screenings will be completed upon visits to evaluate any potential onsets of adult diseases.
