Well-child visits include checks of growth and development, and the administration of any needed vaccines (see below).
If your child is sick or injured, you will be able to see a provider at Novant Health Cotswold Medical Clinic quickly. We reserve same-day and next-day appointments for sick or injured patients. And, should you ever have a medical need after-hours, a call to our office will let you reach our triage team who will advise you whether to seek immediate care and can contact your child's provider if needed.
We care for children with common illnesses including colds, sore throats, earaches and the flu, as well as sports injuries including concussions and chronic conditions including asthma.

Vaccines are some of the most powerful tools available for protecting your child from serious illness. Our office follows the American Academy of Pediatrics' vaccine schedule:
