Early Evaluation for Autism
Our goal is to help sort out the needs of your child and provide you and your child with the needed services in your community. The Early Evaluation Clinic is provided for children ages 2-3 years old. The STAT (Screen Tool for Autism spectrum disorders in Toddlers) will be performed to help determine the level of care your child may require.

NICU Follow-Up
Having a baby in intensive care can be a very scary thing. Knowing that your child will receive first-rate care both during and after provides peace of mind. Many of the infants needing care were born prematurely. Some require medical intervention after discharge. Medical interventions that we frequently monitor are oxygen, apnea monitors, and medications.

Dysfunctional Voiding and Constipation Clinic
Bedwetting is very common in children and is not considered abnormal until the child is over 7 years old. Daytime accidents may occur sporadically as well in young school-aged children. However, if urinary accidents are occurring frequently, during the day or night, and have become disruptive to your child and family, we can help.

Various factors can lead to constipation in children. Common causes include early toilet training and changes in diet. Fortunately, most causes of constipation in children are temporary and easily treatable. Our nurse practitioners are happy to see children with constipation to help sort out all the issues involved and develop a plan with you to help your child.
