Laying the Foundation for a Healthy Life

Choosing a pediatrician is one of the most important decisions for expectant parents to make. Not only is it incredibly important for you to choose a pediatrician who you can trust, its also essential that you like the practice support staff and medical philosophies.

 

That’s why we encourage you to schedule a complimentary pre-natal visit with us so we can get to know one another, and answer any questions you might have. 

Pre-Natal Consultation

If you are delivering at Castle Rock Adventist, Littleton Adventist, or Skyridge Medical Center, we will gladly come to the hospital to examine your precious newborn. 

 

If you are delivering at a different hospital, one of their appointed pediatricians will examine your baby and we will obtain records from this visit to have at your first office appointment. 

 

Well child visits are an important opportunity to monitor your child’s health, growth and development and address any concerns. 

 

For healthy babies, we utilize the following visit schedule (recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics) for the first two years:

 

3 days; 2 weeks; 1 month; 2 months; 4 months; 6 months; 9 months;

12 months; 15 months; 18 months; 2 years.  

Newborn Wellness

Wellness Visits

Well visits are an important opportunity for us to manage your child's growth, development and overall health. We will use these opportunities to discuss concerns you might have, overall wellness, and prevention strategies (ex. immunizations). Once your child starts attending school, we will also use this visit as an opportunity to fill out necessary health statements and provide immunization records. 

Health insurance plans generally pay 100 percent for wellness exams, so please take them up on their no-cost-to-you plan to establish a wellness strategy for your child. 

 

We recommend the following well-child visit schedule:

3 days; 2 weeks; 1 month; 2 months; 4 months; 6 months; 9 months;

12 months; 15 months; 18 months; and 2 years.

From 2 years on, we recommend one visit per year, until age 19. 

Sick Visits

At Pediatrics at the Meadowswe recognize how hard it is to juggle life as a parent!

 

We also know that viruses, infections and injuries will strike at any hour of the day or night!

Our doctors are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a weekWe pledge to do our very best to see your child, in person, the day they're sick!

For your convenience and care, we offer extended hours as well as an early hour walk-in and weekend clinic. During the winter cold and flu season, the early hours walk-in and weekend clinic are reserved exclusively for sick children. 

Circumcisions

The decision to circumcise your son is a personal one. We are happy to discuss the benefits and risks with you, so you can feel empowered to make your own decision.

 

Dr. Milobsky and Dr. Grope are experienced at performing circumcisions, both in a hospital setting, and in our office. If you would like to have your son circumcised, we can perform the routine procedure, safely, in our office.

Ear Piercing

We are currently transitioning to a new electronic health record system. While we are confident that this system will serve our families well in the future, transitions can be challenging and labor intensive. As we enter the winter cold and flu season, we wanted to reassure you that your child’s health and safety is ALWAYS our number one priority. To ease the burden on our staff during this transition and to maintain the high quality of all services we offer, we will be suspending ear piercings until the end of winter. Thank you for your understanding, and partnering with us to keep your children healthy and safe!

We firmly believe that in most circumstances, vaccinating children and young adults is a critical part of laying the foundation for a healthy life. 

 

The recommended vaccines and the vaccine schedule are the results of years of scientific study and data gathering on millions of children by the world’s brightest scientists and physicians.

 

When a parent chooses not to vaccinate, they take a significant risk with their child’s health and the health of others around them.

 

We recognize that there has been controversy surrounding the safety of vaccinations. We are happy to discuss these concerns with you. In some cases, we may alter the vaccine schedule to accommodate your concerns or reservations. 

 

In very rare instances, there are medical conditions that can make children ineligible for vaccinations. As partners in your child’s medical care, we will always check to see that your child can be vaccinated safely. 

We respect that it is your right to choose whether or not to vaccinate your child, however we believe that, unless contraindicated, vaccines play a critical role in keeping your children healthy and safe. 

We have therefore decided that, for the safety of the infants and immunocompromised patients in our practice, we will no longer be accepting new patients who choose not be vaccinated. 

We believe that parents who don’t share our confidence in the safety and efficacy of vaccines will be more likely to trust a pediatrician who shares their values and opinions.
