“I went into health care because the human body is a work of art and is direct proof that there is an amazing God…I wanted to be a practitioner to be part of families and help raise/care for their children throughout their lives. I love the idea of the old family doctor who cared for both the children and their parents even if that just meant listening. It is this family concept that really excited me about coming to Chapin Pediatrics. My family is my life, and Chapin Pediatrics wanted to get to know and embrace my entire family – not just me. This means the world to me.”

Well Care Visits
Children grow quickly in the first years of life so we believe that well visits are important for preventative measures. This allows us to ensure that your child is staying healthy and reaching appropriate developmental milestones. We recommend well visits at the 2 week mark as well as the 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18 month mark. We also recommend a visit when a child turns 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10 years old.
We follow the CDC’s vaccination guidelines.
We offer same day sick appointments for your child, but can’t guarantee that your child will see their usual provider. Call our office and we will help you schedule an appointment so your child can be seen as quick as possible.
After Hours/Weekend Care
We offer acute care on Saturdays from 8:00am to 12:00pm. We share an on call schedule with Ballentine Pediatrics.
You should always call our main office number to reach for after hours or weekend care. We are available for Saturday sick appointments beginning at 8:00am until around noon. The appointments are offered at the office of the doctor on call. You will be directed to the correct office when you call for an appointment.
We reserve the right to assign a $25.00 charge for after hours phone calls. We are sure you consider the information you receive after hours to be valuable and worth that expense. Please note that many of your insurance companies provide you with free nursing advice so you may want to call them first. However, if you use our services we will ask that you pay for them.
Our nurse practitioner, Julie Edwards APRN-CLC, is available for lactation counseling appointments to guide and support breastfeeding mothers and babies. Julie is able to provide clinical breastfeeding knowledge as well as information that aligns with the CDC’s breastfeeding recommendations.
