Check-up Schedule

Please call as far in advance as possible to schedule check-ups. We recommend vaccinations according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Please consult with us for the latest schedule of immunizations and recommended tests. This may vary from patient to patient depending on the specific situation and as new immunizations become available.

We encourage a first visit 2-3 days after discharge, especially for nursing babies. If your baby left the hospital before 24 hours, you must come in for a visit two days after discharge to complete the required state metabolic screen (the “PKU.”)
