Child+Teen Eval

Autism, ADD & ADHD Treatment

Are you worried that your child may have Autism, ADD or ADHD? These are medical conditions that can affect children at school, home, and in friendships. We’re here to help find a solution for your child.

School, Sport & Camp Physicals

School physicals can help identify any issues your growing child may be dealing with. Many kids participate in sports and camp each year, making sure your athlete is okay to play is the first step in getting ready for the big game!

Immunizations

Choosing to vaccinate your child is one of the best choices you’ll make to protect their health and well-being from an early age. In most cases, many immunizations are necessary before your child is permitted to start school.

Allergies & Asthma Treatment

A child who sneezes or coughs a lot, frequently develops a rash, hives, or gets stomachaches after eating may have allergies. Identifying allergies early will improve your child’s quality of life. Asthma is the most common chronic lung disease among children.​

Pediatric Nutrition Counseling

Are you ready to change your child’s frame of mind around mealtime? Learn to overcome challenging issues such as picky eating, allergy management, weight concerns, and disease prevention. Let’s do it together– as a team.
