Our internal medicine and pediatrics providers strongly emphasize preventive medicine for both children and adults. The combined specialty also provides training in a wide variety of illnesses and chronic medical conditions, including but not limited to:

Appointments and visits

Physicals and well child visits

To keep you and your children healthy, it is important to come in for regular checkups. We recommend that you call in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.

* When scheduling, keep in mind that some insurance companies pay for a physical/well child visit only after 365 days since the previous visit, while some insurance companies pay for one visit per calendar year. Please call the customer support number on your insurance card if you are not sure. 

We offer same-day sports physicals.

Sick visits

We make every effort to schedule appointments for illness on the day that you call us. Please call our office ahead of time so that we can minimize the time that you will spend waiting.

Sorry, no walk-ins

All visits require an appointment. Unfortunately, we do not take walk-ins but we will be happy to schedule the soonest available appointment for you.

Immunizations for children

In our experience, a full set of vaccines administered according to the AAP/ACIP recommendations are vital to your child’s health and safety. We realize there is a lot of controversy about immunizations and navigating the information can be overwhelming.

As pediatricians, we strongly recommend following the immunization guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If you have questions about the vaccines, how they work and if they’re necessary, be sure to talk with one of our board-certified pediatricians. The CDC also has a helpful handout that explains what you need to know about your baby’s first vaccines.

Concussions in children

A concussion is an injury to the brain caused by a blow to the head, or by striking the head on another object. It may result in a headache, confusion, or rarely even loss of consciousness, and the effects usually resolve in a few hours or days.

Our board-certified pediatricians recommend watching this video* Concussions 101, a Primer for Kids and Parents  to understand a little more about concussions and the steps to take if you’ve had a sports-related concussion before you get back in the game.

The video encourages patients to “take care of that awesome brain” and we agree. Contact our office if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified pediatricians.

Sun safety for children

Summertime means that it’s time for sunscreen. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about sunscreen and what the safest products are for children. UCHealth pediatricians and providers like to keep it simple:

  • Use hats, sunglasses and SPF clothing. Swim shirts help prevent sunburns on shoulders and necks.
  • Use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+.
  • Use hypoallergenic sunscreen.
  • Reapply at least every two hours, especially when your kids are swimming or sweating.

Be sure to visit the American Academy of Pediatrics’ HealthyChildren.org page for more detailed information about sunscreen safety.
