At NeighborHealth, we believe that all individuals are a unique creation of God and that each person has a physical (medical), emotional/mental (behavioral health) and spiritual side to them.
Our team at NeighborHealth not only strives to provide excellent medical services to treat our patient’s physical needs, but we are also concerned about our patients emotional/mental health and their spiritual health—Whole-Person Centered Healthcare. Our dedicated team takes this whole -person-centered care approach while treating all our patient’s needs. Be sure to visit our ‘what to bring‘ page before your first visit.

We believe that each child is a unique and precious gift from God, and we seek to provide comprehensive pediatric care for children from birth through age 18. Care for children is provided by our excellent team of providers.
It is very important to schedule regular well-child visits for your child to ensure their healthy development and growth. These visits start shortly after birth and continue through adolescence. Well-child visits are scheduled generally every 2-3 months from birth to age 2, then every 1-2 years from ages 3 to 18.
Well-child care at NeighborHealth includes:
- Tracking of growth and development
- Parent and child encouragement and guidance
- Screening of vision and hearing
- Screening for lead, cholesterol, and anemia
- Administration of immunizations
- Childhood Immunizations
There are many excellent vaccines available to protect your child from serious illness. All recommended childhood vaccines will be provided at NeighborHealth during well-child visits. It is important that parents ensure that each of their children are properly immunized; this will also protect others in the community from the spread of serious illness. If you have questions about vaccines, please ask—your child’s doctor will be happy to discuss them with you.
