Serving as your child’s medical home, we will provide care for your child when they are well and when they are not. We are committed to providing exceptional care for you and your family.

Whole Life Care

Northwest Family Clinics provides care for all aspects of your child’s healthcare needs from preventive care at routine well child checks, acute illness, and managing chronic medical conditions.

Our care can start as early as when your child is born, and, because we are family physicians, can continue well into adulthood. We love developing relationships with both you and your child, watching them grow!

We can even deliver your baby and become their lifelong doctor.

New Baby Care

Are you expecting a new baby and interested in meeting one of our providers? You can schedule a “Meet and Greet” visit before baby is born! During the complimentary visit, we can get to know each other a bit, and discuss any concerns you may have about your upcoming addition.

Many of our physicians start by seeing your baby in the hospital shortly after delivery.  

We also offer newborn circumcisions in each of our three clinics.

Newborn Circumcision

A hood of skin, called the foreskin, covers the head (or glans) of the penis. In a newborn circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed, exposing the end of the penis. Some families choose to circumcise their baby based on cultural or religious beliefs. Others choose to for hygiene or appearance. And some choose not to circumcise. Most circumcisions are done during the first 10-14 days of a baby's life. We perform newborn circumcision at all three of our clinic locations. We encourage you to check insurance regarding coverage of this procedure. Learn more here.

Well Child Care

Routine Well Child visits are important throughout your growing child’s life. Newborns, infants, and toddlers are seen as frequently as every 2-3 months. As your child or teen grows, we typically see them at least yearly for well child check-up, even when vaccinations are not needed. Convenient early morning and late evening clinic hours are available to meet the needs of your busy family.

 

Well child exams include:

  • Monitoring your child’s growth and development
  • Vaccinations
  • Providing anticipatory guidance for upcoming milestones
  • Listening to your concerns, and answering questions along the way

 

We can diagnose and treat all kinds of chronic conditions like:

  • Asthma
  • ADHD
  • Allergies
  • Developmental delay
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Obesity
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Chronic skin conditions
  • Contraception

As your child’s primary care physician, we coordinate care with specialists.

Is your child sick or not feeling well? 

Our primary care doctors often have same-day appointments available to get a diagnosis and treatment fast. Our urgent care also offers walk-in services 7 days a week, 365 days per year to help when your child is sick.
