Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we are currently accepting new patients. Please contact our office to request an appointment.

A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Beyond medical school, pediatricians have undergone three, or more, years of rigorous residency training in the health and illnesses of infants, children and teens.  After residency, pediatricians who pass a comprehensive and difficult exam are eligible to become certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.

Pediatricians provide preventive health care for children in good health and medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill. They also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.

Yes, we welcome parents-to-be to visit our office for a prenatal consultation.  It is a great way to get acquainted with our practice. At the prenatal consultation visit, we discuss your pregnancy as it pertains to the baby’s health and answer any questions you might have about your newborn.  Many parents find it helpful to discuss infant feeding (breast, bottle or both), umbilical cord care, circumcision, stooling and voiding habit, signs of illness, jaundice, newborn sleep habits, colic, and car seat safety.  The prenatal visit is an unhurried face-to-face consultation designed to help you and your baby get off to a great start.  Congratulations!

Your child should not only see the pediatrician for an illness. It is also important to schedule well-child-care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Also called well-child visits or checkups, these routine examinations provide the best opportunity for Dr. Avery to observe the progress of your child’s physical and emotional growth and development.  Well-child visits are a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child’s development, behavior, nutrition, safety and overall well-being.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends this schedule for routine well-care visits:

  • 3 to 5 days
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 30 months
  • 3 years
  • 4 years
  • …and once every year thereafter for an annual health supervision visit that includes a physical exam as well as a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.

We work hard to ensure your child receives prompt medical care in a comfortable, child-friendly environment.  For the first appointment, we ask that you please bring your child’s immunization records, previous medical records and be prepared to complete paperwork regarding your family medical history, your child’s medical history, and insurance information, if you anticipate using insurance.
