As a staff, we are interested in all aspects of health, growth, and development that affect a child’s overall well-being. For that reason, we feel very strongly that it is important to see children on a regular basis for well-care visits. These times are set aside not only to get to know you and your child better, but also to address ongoing issues such as development, nutrition, behavior, discipline, and safety.
During your child’s well-care visit, attention is given to any chronic health problems such as asthma, poor growth, etc. We hope you will use these visits to discuss any ongoing concerns you may have as well. In this way, we hope to anticipate your child’s health needs as he or she matures.
Knowing your child in a “well” state helps us to deal effectively with illness when it occurs. As a practice, our providers strongly support and encourage immunizations at every visit. If you have any concerns regarding immunizations, please ask your provider.

- School, Camp & Daycare Forms
Please note that for all school, camp, sports, daycare, and medication form requests, your child must have had a well child checkup within the past 12 months. Turnaround time is 5 business days due to our high volume of requests. If you require same-day turnaround for your child’s form completion, a $30 charge will be assessed. Just stop into one of our offices with your form and method of payment, and our administrative nurse will complete it for you as soon as possible.To request a form, please call our administrative nurse at (970) 416-6282 or drop off your request at one of our three office locations. If you have verified the date of your child’s last well care, you may also fax your request (with return instructions) to (970) 207-9967.
- Scheduling Appointments
Our office is equipped to handle most situations and we do not over-schedule our patients. All visits require a scheduled appointment. Please call (970) 482-2515 to schedule an appointment.
