ARE YOU EXPECTING?

Having a baby is one of the most rewarding experiences in your life. At Boerne Pediatrics we are committed to keeping your baby healthy. Our professional team provides the quality care your child needs and the advice and counsel you want. Our pediatricians are all board-certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.

Affiliated Hospitals

After your baby is born:

  • Please call 830-816-5055 to schedule a newborn visit at our office at 3 days of age.

Bring to your first visit:

Lactation Services

Vaccinations

Our pediatricians dedicate their efforts to the health, safety and well-being of infants, children, adolescents and young adults. One very important step in ensuring the health of any child is to make sure he or she receives immunizations at the correct time. Vaccines prevent serious diseases and have helped to lower the rates of these diseases in the U.S. By getting vaccinated, individual children receive protection from these diseases. There is much conflicting information in the news and on the Web about children's immunizations. When you have a question about immunizations or vaccines, check with your child's doctor.

During each visit, we will provide you with a Vaccine Information Statement which discusses the vaccine, its benefits, and any possible side effects. Many of your questions about vaccines can be answered ahead of time by consulting the CDC Guide to Childhood Immunizations or the Parents' PACK from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. A delayed or alternative schedule places your child, family and other patients in our practice at risk. Parents who refuse vaccines for their children are not a good fit for the Boerne Pediatrics medical home.

One very important step in ensuring the health of any child is to make sure he or she receives immunizations at the correct time. Vaccines prevent serious diseases and have helped to lower the rates of these diseases in the U.S. By getting vaccinated, individual children receive protection from these diseases.
Vaccines also help to protect communities by slowing or stopping disease outbreaks. This is especially important for children who cannot be vaccinated because they are too young, too sick, or do not respond to vaccines.

Our Board Certified pediatricians will provide you with the tools you need to make the best decision for your child's health.
