Do you need a Pediatrician? The answer is: Probably not.
At Dr. Erikson, Family Practice we treat children from birth throughout your entire life. Isn’t it comforting to know that you probably don’t have to establish relationships with different physicians throughout your stages of life? However, you might need a pediatrician if your child has a complicated or chronic illness. 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.
