About us

At Cohen Children’s, our general pediatric practices provide a variety of services, including anticipatory guidance, preventive medicine and immunizations.

Keeping your child’s immunizations current
Making sure your child receives all vaccinations on time is one of the most important things you can do to ensure his or her long-term health – as well as the health of friends, classmates and others in the community. 

It’s true that some vaccine-preventable diseases have become very rare thanks to vaccines. However, outbreaks still happen. Making sure your child is up to date with vaccinations is the best way to make sure our communities and schools do not experience an outbreak.

When your child is getting ready to go back to school

Our pediatricians can handle your school and sports physical needs!  The highly trained staff will complete your child’s exam and any forms you need for the coming school year. We will also administer any immunizations that your child may be due for.

Before heading back to school, a proper checkup is important to evaluate any issues your growing child may be experiencing. For example, a back to school physical will check whether your child’s vision is developing properly and address any other developmental issues that are important to a growing child.

What to expect

Back to school physical exams will vary based on the child’s age, but typically our pediatricians will:

  • Record your child’s height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and Body Mass Index
  • Check your child’s heart, lungs, glands, abdomen, skin, eyes, ears, nose, and throat
  • Review your child’s immunization record
  • Make sure your child’s blood work is up to date
  • Evaluate your child’s vision, hearing, joints, muscles, and spine
  • Discuss the medical history of your child and your family

What to bring

You should bring your child’s immunization records and a list of any medications your child takes, including prescription medications and over-the-counter medicines.

Please bring your child’s insurance information

Please hand any school forms to be completed to the front desk upon check-in.
