Care for every stage

Our pediatricians are trained to treat children as they grow, which means consistent preventive care,  addressing changing concerns and building an ongoing understanding of your child’s unique needs. 

Here’s what you can expect from your pediatrician throughout the years of your child’s development: 

Newborn

We’ll get to know you and your child through an initial exam and a medical history review. In the first few weeks after their birth, we’ll pay close attention to your child’s weight gain, nutritional needs and vitamin levels (especially Vitamin K).  We’ll be there to answer any questions that you may have. 

Learn more about our Vitamin K and Erythromycin Policy ›

Infant

Your baby will be seen every two to three months. Don’t worry, we’ll always remind you of when to set up your next appointment. 

 At each visit we will:

  • Give them a comprehensive physical exam
  • Measure your baby’s head size, and check their length and weight
  • Ask about common issues like colic, reflux, or trouble sleeping or feeding
  • Screen regularly for age-appropriate development
  • Assist you (mom) if you are experiencing postpartum depression
  • Administer vaccines when due  
  • Answer any questions you may have

At age one, we will also perform a lab test to check for anemia (low iron levels). 

Toddler age

Beginning at age two, your toddler will be seen annually. At these visits we will: 

  • Give them a comprehensive physical exam
  • Measure height and weight
  • Screen regularly for age-appropriate development
  • Ask about common issues like temper tantrums, trouble sleeping, picky eating, etc. 
  • Administer vaccines when due  

At age two, we’ll perform two lab tests to screen your child for lead and anemia again. At age three, we will start checking their blood pressure annually. 

School age

Your child will be seen annually during his or her early school years. At these visits, we will: 

  • Give a comprehensive physical examination
  • Measure weight, height and blood pressure
  • Regular screenings for vision and age-appropriate development
  • Discuss school, nutrition, sleep, and social/behavioral health discussion
  • Administer vaccines when due  

At around age 11, we will do a blood test to check cholesterol levels and screen for anemia.

Adolescence

Your child will continue to be seen annually throughout middle and high school. At these visits, we will: 

  • Give a comprehensive physical examination
  • Measure weight, height and blood pressure and conduct a vision screening
  • Address challenges that can develop around puberty (depression, stress, etc.) 
  • Talk about health, safety and risk behaviors to help them make better choices
  • Administer vaccines when due  

When your teen is around 13 or 14, we will offer to do part of the visit with you (parents) in the room and part of the discussion or exam with you outside. This proactive approach  gives young people the option to speak privately with their long-time pediatrician if they need to. 

For teens looking to transition to a more mature medical setting, Optum offers specialized adolescent care.

18 years and older

By the time your teen is 18 years old, he or she may choose to switch to an adult internal medicine provider. However, we are happy to continue seeing them until 21 years old, at the discretion of your pediatrician, but you (as the parent) will no longer be required to attend the visits. 

We get to know your child’s needs well throughout our time together, and we’d be happy to help them find the right primary care physician or OB/GYN (gynecologist) when the time comes. 

Immunizations for your child

Getting your child immunized against preventable diseases helps set them up for a healthy life. At Optum, we believe the best approach is to follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics
