Primary Care

Newborn Care

Newborns are seen often in the first weeks to make sure feeding is going well and everyone is adjusting well to life outside the womb. We provide prompt visits -- same day if necessary -- and can manage blood draws, newborn metabolic screening, and if not done previously, critical congenital heart defect screening and hepatitis B vaccine. We facilitate newborn hearing screening if not previously done, though we don't do them in the office.

Newborns are typically seen at 3-5 days, 7-14 days, and 1 month.

We want to hear if you are having a tough time with parenting -- anxiety and depression can rob you of the joy of parenting, and help is available.

Baby/Kid Care

Infants are seen at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. Toddlers are seen at 15, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months. Kids are seen annually after that.

Most parents have lots of questions -- write them down or send them in and we'll try to answer all of them. We'll spend lots of time talking about your developing baby and your evolution as a parent, along with big milestones like starting solids, babyproofing, and the fickle appetites of toddlers.

Oral/Dental Health

Dr. Kass was trained by the Arcora Foundation to provide oral health care in the primary care setting, including basic dental exams, oral health education, and application of fluoride varnish to prevent cavities. Baby teeth are important!

Vaccines

We love vaccines. We love talking about vaccines and answering questions about vaccines. We offer and recommend the full on-time CDC schedule, as it is the most efficient way to get your baby protected as soon as possible. 

Sick Visits

We reserve multiple same-day slots for acute/sick visits. 

Teens

Ongoing primary care is an important relationship for teens.

Postpartum Anxiety/Depression

Though we primarily serve babies and kids, it is in our scope to treat adults, and if it is helpful and appropriate to refer for counseling, evaluation and treatment, along with prescribing medication to start turning things around.

 
 
Pretty much the smartest, most compassionate provider around—the person to call when you have a complex clinical question. And funny.
