We’re also able to treat many problems as Virtual Visits using internet video connection via Face Time or secure Zoom.  If you have a concern that you’ve been meaning to discuss with your child’s doctor, this is an ideal time to call!

 

To keep your family healthy, we recommend scheduling the following types of appointments:

  • Newborns and babies under 2 years of age will be seen in the office for regular checkups (birth and 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18 and 24 months). These visits are so important to your infants health! At each wellness visit:
  • Your baby Is weighed and measured to monitor growth parameters
  • Your baby has a hands on physical exam to screen for serious illness
  • You have time ask questions and we provide anticipatory guidance
  • Your baby receives necessary vaccines (a resurgence in measles or whooping cough would be terrible right now!)

Jorge Cardenas - Health Coach

Jorge Cardenas, RN

Personal health coaching can help you or your child achieve wellness goals! The coach can interact with both child and caregiver to identify specific concerns with health consequences [such as forgetting to turn in homework or drinking too many sugary beverages] and develop strategies for individual success! They use proven methods to facilitate a partnership to achieve healthy, sustainable behavior change. Health coaching draws on the principles of positive behavioral psychology and appreciative inquiry through the practice of motivational interviewing and goal setting. Regular follow-up through office visits, email, or telephone ensures that early changes become sustainable habits. 

As a true medical home, we at Village Pediatrics are invested in our patients’ health and wellness and we are ready to guide and support positive health choices that lead to success. We have our very own health coach! Jorge Cardenas, RN has the ideal temperament for this position. He is kind, thoughtful and encouraging in very creative ways! Jorge has also taken specialized training to learn additional skills needed for successful health coaching.
