Time for your child's physical?

Our state of Colorado "safer at home" order (https://covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home) for COVID-19 exempts outpatient doctor offices and permits to seek medical care for anything you consider important; furthermore, getting your medical care at your medical home (ie. our office) keeps people out of the hospitals, which are experiencing the stress of COVID-19.  We are following American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations by:  modifying our operations to keep well and sick patients separate, having separate exam rooms for well and sick patients, utilizing Telehealth when appropriate, and performing limited COVID-19 testing in our offices.  All physicals are important and should be kept on schedule to help prevent vaccine-preventable diseases.  We agree with the AAP and encourage families to keep their children current on their routine physical/vaccine schedules.  Anything you consider important for your child's continued good health is important to us and we are able to accommodate you at this time!

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends routine physicals for ages:  2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, 2 1/2 years, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years, and yearly until 22 years of age.  For athletics and other activities, the yearly physical also qualifies for their pre-participation exam, and forms can be filled out at the time of their physical.
