Services Provided


Check ups
Please call well in advance to schedule a routine checkup. During routine check-ups we will review your child's growth and development, screen for medical problems, give immunizations, and provide education about your child's medical, behavioral and developmental needs. If your child has ongoing medical needs, the physician will likely want to monitor them on a regular basis.

Sick visits
For sick visits, please call as early in the day as possible. The goal is to accommodate all patients that need to be seen each day. When your child is sick, your physician will work with you to provide care for your child. We generally avoid the use of medications unless there is a clear benefit. Many illnesses are caused by viral infections. The use of antibiotics for viral infections is avoided as they are only effective in treating bacterial infections.

University Pediatrics believes that immunizations are an essential part of providing optimum health care to children. Your physician is happy to answer any questions you may have about immunizations.

Many referrals are made at the time of a visit in which case we usually complete all necessary paperwork. If you need a referral or have questions about whether a referral has been made please call during regular office hours.

Sports physicals
The State Board of Education requires that every athlete entering the 7th and 9th grade receive a complete well child checkup (also known as an EPSDT screen) prior to participation in sports.
