When traveling, especially abroad, individuals may be exposed to certain viruses, bacteria or parasites that they would not have come into contact with at home. Therefore, it is important to prepare for a trip with a visit to the physician in case any vaccinations need to be administered. We have MOST TRAVEL VACCINES AVAILABLE.
Children with behavior problems often cause concern among parents as they may not be able to handle certain disruptive or inappropriate behaviors. A behavioral consultation allows our doctor to observe your child’s natural activity and interaction, as well as interview the parents, or other involved adults, in order to assess behavior and develop a solution.
Consultations can be performed at any age, but are most common among school-age children. Your doctor will work together with you and your child in order to develop an individualized treatment plan that will be followed through and monitored by subsequent consultations.

Developmental screening is a routine monitoring process used to identify any potential developmental delays in children. Early detection is a valuable tool in terms of treating health and development issues. Developmental screenings can identify delays in milestones that can indicate diagnoses of autism, mental retardation and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, among others.
Screenings are performed through questions and questionnaires during a well-child checkup to ensure that your child is progressing at a normal rate. This takes only a few minutes at each doctor’s visit, but can play a major role in identifying and then treating early developmental conditions.
