Office Hours


IMG_9965xBefore & After Baby is Born

If you would like to meet us in person before your baby is born, we’re happy to schedule a complimentary meet-and-greet visit. This is a great way to get to know your pediatrician and share any important prenatal information. You might also have a lot of questions. We’re here for you! Feel free to ask us about childbirth, circumcision, breastfeeding, belly buttons, or anything else.

Once your baby is born at your hospital, birth center, or home, please call and let us know! We would like to see your baby in clinic in the first three days of life.

Childhood Preventative Care Schedule

Typically children see us on the following schedule:

Ages and Stages Questionnaires

Our physicians published a document to let new parents know what we look for at the 9-month, 18-month, and 30-month Well-Child Checkup. It’s called “Ages and Stages Developmental Screening Activities.” DOWNLOAD PDF NOW

Please feel free to call us at (206) 546-2421 any time you have a concern about your child’s health or development.

Adolescence and Beyond

As children reach adolescence they require a different approach to health care. We use the following guidelines to ensure the best care for your adolescent’s changing needs:

What the doctor discusses alone with your adolescent remains private unless he/she wishes to share the conversation with you, or the doctor feels the health of your adolescent or someone else is in danger.

We will let your adolescent is made aware what concerns are discussed together. We always encourage both adolescents and their caregivers to call our office with any questions.

A chaperone or family member present for the exam can be requested.

We will continue to discuss your adolescent’s health, ensure your understanding of our plans, and encourage your support and participation.

We are happy to provide a medical home for your adolescent through college and assist with the transitioning to an adult health care provider.
