We recommend that expectant mothers and fathers new to the practice schedule a brief appointment during the last trimester of pregnancy. During this meeting you will meet with the pediatrician and can ask questions about your child and/or our practice and philosophy on health care.
One of our pediatricians will monitor your baby’s health while at Monadnock Community Hospital and will perform a complete physical exam. After discharge, we will usually see the baby again at two weeks of age. During that interval, do not hesitate to call our office with questions.
Well Child Care
During your regular visits, our pediatricians will evaluate your child’s physical, mental, emotional and social development. We update your child’s immunizations, evaluate your child’s vision and hearing and provide advice about child behavior and parenting
We maintain an active interest in the medical needs of teenagers and young adults. We provide sports, school and work physicals. For adolescent girls, Drs. Scheinblum, Schoel and Shea will provide confidential counseling and routine gynecologic care, including pap smears.
Specialized Pediatric Services
Our pediatricians are trained to provide specialized health care services for children with chronic illness, physical disabilities, learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder and other complex situations.
Tests, X-rays and Cultures
We provide routine laboratory tests in our office, such as strep tests, lead screenings, urinalysis and culture. We also utilize the hospital’s lab and radiology facilities. Positive overnight culture results will be called to you in the morning between 9:00 and 9:30 am during the week and between 8:30 and 9:00 am on the weekends. If we have asked you to let us know about your child’s progress, please notify us early in the day.
