    SERVICES

    At Birth and Beyond we offer a full range of pediatric services for children from birth to 18 years of age. We are proud to share these formative years with our patients and their families and are dedicated to providing compassionate and high-quality healthcare.

    Comprehensive Well-child Visits

    We believe that a healthy childhood is achieved when parents and pediatricians work together. During well-care visits, we strive to create a complete picture of your child’s health by taking time to ask questions and listen to your concerns. Beginning at birth, we measure your child’s physical and mental development during our annual exams, school and sports physicals and vaccination appointments. Our big-picture approach to pediatric services includes:

    • Monitoring physical growth and encouraging healthy nutrition
    • Assessing emotional health
    • Providing vaccinations
    • Offering health screens and tests
