PTHA is committed to providing compassionate care to children and their families. We care for children of all ages from newborn to adolescence.
Well Child Visits
Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. You will have well child visits most often when your child is developing the fastest. Well child visits are key times for communication. Expect to be given information about normal development, nutrition, sleep, safety and other important topics. These visits are the perfect time to ask and receive information and discuss any concerns you may have.
We strongly believe in and recommend vaccines. Vaccines are some of the most important tools available for preventing disease, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Vaccinations not only protect children from developing a potentially serious disease but also protect the community by reducing the spread of infectious disease.
