At Progressive Pediatrics, Dr. Polack and Dr. Teraguchi are committed to health maintenance and prevention of serious illness in children using a systematic approach. This approach begins in the prenatal stage and continues after your baby arrives. Our goal is to provide proper healthcare early in your child’s life.Many parents, especially first-time parents, ask how often their child should see a pediatrician. Of course, you should see a kids doctor any time your child is sick. We have same-day sick child care for those times.

- 3 days after leaving the hospital
- 1 week after the first visit
- At 1, 2, 4, 6 and 9 months
- At 1 year
- At 15 and 18 months
