Well Child Schedule
Newborn Visit: 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 months, 2 years and annually there after
Vaccine Schedule: Typically 1, 2, 4, 6, (not 9) 12, 15, 18 months, 4 years, 12 years*
*Please note some vaccine schedules may change over time or from one pediatrician to another. If you are a transfer patient we may amend the schedule. Also note that if your baby is not feeling well for a well child appointment we would still like to complete the well child exam but may delay the vaccines a few days or weeks.
Ways to make an appointment
- The Patient Portal: We would like to strongly encourage our patients to utilize the Patient Portal as much as possible but especially when making appointments. Relying on the Patient Portal as an appointment scheduling tool allows us to be more efficient with our time in the office which leads to shorter wait times and more attention given to our patients.
- Phone Call: Although we strongly encourage the Patient Portal for appointments, we are always willing to take your call and schedule an appointment over the phone. Please let us know when you are in our office if we can help you with navigating or using the Patient Portal.
No Walk-In Visits
Although we work very hard to schedule same day sick visits we cannot accommodate walk-in visits. Walk-in visits greatly diminish our capabilities to keep our patients flowing efficiently and keep our wait times low which is our ultimate goal.
Well Child Visits
Although we are willing to work with our parents and their schedules we like to encourage our families to schedule their well child visits in the spring and summer. We have much lower incidences of diseases in the spring and summer so that reduces unnecessary exposure to illness during well child visits. In addition, when we are not having to coordinate a high volume of well and sick visits we can keep our wait times low for both. Please log into the Patient Portal and let us know when a good time for your well child visits would be. We will contact you shortly to confirm your appointment.
Requesting forms is as quick and easy as making an appointment or asking a nurse a questions through messaging on the Patient Portal. To request a blue immunization form, sports physical, camp physical or any other from please log into the Patient Portal and click on request a form. See screen shot below of the Patient Portal and where to request a form is located. The “Appointments and Requests” tab is the fourth tab from the left when viewing the Online Patient Services within the portal.
