These routine wellness exams allow us to monitor your child’s growth and development and cultivate a partnership designed to optimize your child’s health within an integrative framework.

The cornerstone of child care

Sick Visits

At Goldfish Pediatrics we offer same day in-office appointments and virtual/telemedicine in lieu of office visits when appropriate and safe.


We do everything possible to prevent the inconvenience and stress of a visit to the emergency room by scheduling same-day appointments if your child is suffering from, for example:

  • Persistent pain such as sore throat, severe headache, abdominal pain
  • Earache or discharge from the ear
  • Cough, wheezing or other respiratory challenges
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Thick eye discharge and/or red eyes
  • Stiff neck
  • Any illness that worsens or goes on for more than three days
  • Fever, particularly lasting 3 days or longer


In the event that a same-day appointment is not medically necessary, we will set you up with an appointment the following day.

From babies to adolescents

Virtual Visit / Telemedicine


Recently, as a precaution during this COVID era, Goldfish Pediatrics will require a provider to first conduct a screening by phone or video in order to determine the necessity and safety of an in-person versus remote visit. We hope you understand we are keeping you and our staff as safe as possible by implementing such protocols and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.



Virtual Visits may be considered for:

  • Urgent advice requests that require extensive triage, treatment plan updates, laboratory orders, prescriptions or referrals
  • Non-urgent consultation requests for existing or new symptoms that do not require a face-to-face evaluation (such as rash or other skin complaints).
  • Any symptom or topic that requires further evaluation, additional lab testing, changes to treatment plans, or new prescriptions
  • Frequent or lengthy emails with multiple questions between our providers and parents
  • Parental concerns that require a discussion for the purposes of a comprehensive understanding and recommendations
  • Review of labs

School, Sport and Camp Physicals


As your child gets older, Goldfish Pediatrics offers school, sport, and camp physicals.

If your child has had a comprehensive exam within the last year and does not require another physical, we request that you email, fax, mail or deliver the appropriate forms to our office for completion at least 14 days before the registration deadline.
