Our Medical Assistants

A medical assistant will likely be the first person you’ll see after you’ve checked in with our receptionist. Medical assistants are responsible for preparing your child for the visit by taking vital signs such as temperature and blood pressure and obtain a brief health history. Our medical assistants also perform lab tests such as strep tests or urinalysis. They know that your child (and you!) may be nervous or not feel well, and will try to make everyone more comfortable and relaxed.
