It is important for all children ages 0-18 to receive an annual physical to ensure they are growing and developing properly. We make sure that your child's well-being is safeguarded by checking their vision, hearing and physical development as he or she grows from childhood into adolescence. We provide preventive physical exams, immunizations, and address onset illnesses and injuries, as well as on-going primary care needs.
We offer diagnostics for many acute symptoms such as ear infections, strep throat, flu, colds, and other illnesses.
