Toddler to Adolescent

Wellness checks for 3 - 13 years include all necessary vaccines, and start to include weight management, sports physicals, and annual health checks.

Developmental milestones will begin to review social skills, language and comprehension, psychological development.

Remember, success of your child - even through adulthood - is most positively affected by detection and management of early developmental issues.

Studies show that children 18 months delayed at 4 years when compared to their peers often remain developmentally delayed indefinitely.

Many of these developmental delays can be caught and corrected before they create long term affects.

As you child becomes involved in sports and outdoor play, exposure to environmental conditions and injury occasionally engender a sick visit.

That’s all part of growing up and we are there with you every step of the way.

Forbidding children from eating foods doesn't work. When children think that a food is forbidden by their parents, the food often becomes more desirable.
