Pediatrics

At Apple Ridge Family Medicine, our caring and trusted practitioners provide comprehensive healthcare for children of all ages.

 

From birth through adolescence, we help your child achieve and maintain optimal health with continuous, preventative care that takes into account his or her individual medical needs. Through routine examinations, nutrition counseling, and immunization, we aim to give your child a healthy start in life.

Continuous & Proactive Care

We recommend routine visits for babies up to 2 years of age, and annual checkups for children 3 years and older (unless special care is required). During each visit, we perform a thorough physical examination to assess and monitor your child’s health and development. We also take the time to address any questions or concerns you may have.

 

By providing continuous care, we build an intimate and historical understanding of your child’s medical needs. This deep knowledge allows us to diagnosis any health or developmental issues early and to take appropriate actions quickly.
