Come in and talk with us; we’re here to help
At Westchester Health Pediatrics, we’ve helped lots of parents raise happy, healthy kids, and
we’re ready to help you with yours. Please come to us with any questions or concerns you may
have; we’re here for you with information, guidance and advice. If you feel your child’s development
is not quite on target, please share your concerns at any time with your pediatrician.
We’re found through the years that moms and dads not only want information about their
infant’s present stage of development but also about the one that’s coming next.
Remember: It’s important to realize that every child develops at his/her own pace, but if you’re
concerned about any stage of development, please let your pediatrician know.
