PEDIATRICS

At Erikson Family Medicine we treat children from birth throughout their entire life. Isn't it comforting to know that you can keep the same doctor throughout your various stages of life? However, you might need a pediatrician if your child has a complicated or chronic illness, and we can help refer you to the proper specialist in these cases. Family physicians are well trained in the care of children and most pediatric needs. Dr. Erikson is even able to establish the relationship with your newborn right after birth.

Dr. Erikson treats children of all ages and also provides:

  • Well-child visits
  • Immunizations

Check the CDC's Immunization Schedule (tables below taken directly from the CDC) to know when your child needs which immunizations.

Call our office today to schedule an appointment for your child.
