Getting a Healthy Start
At Clark Pediatrics, our goal is to ensure that your child’s early years are as healthy and happy as possible. We provide comprehensive care for children with an emphasis on preventive health, and follow the standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics, which specify physical examinations, immunizations, and other tests.
And because growing children have ever-changing healthcare needs, we provide a host of services to ensure proper growth and development through all stages of their childhood.
We perform physical exams, immunizations and other tests with a special emphasis on preventative healthcare. During your child’s first three years, routine visits are scheduled at one week, then at one, two, four, six, nine, twelve, fifteen, eighteen, twenty-four and thirty months and yearly thereafter. And we do it all in a positive, kid-friendly environment. Placing value on your child’s health now will lay the foundation for a healthy future. When you need a trusted physician to look after your child’s health, look no further than Clark Pediatrics.
