About Us

Welcome to Progressive Pediatrics

Where Your Child’s Good Health Gets A Good Start In Life


At Progressive Pediatrics, Drs. Polack, Teraguchi and Malabanan are committed to health maintenance and prevention of serious illness in children using a systematic approach. This approach begins in the prenatal stage and continues after your baby arrives. Our goal is to provide proper healthcare early in your child’s life.

Many parents, especially first-time parents, ask how often their child should see a pediatrician. Of course, you should see a kids doctor any time your child is sick. We have same-day urgent care for those times. For children who are otherwise in good health, we recommend the following age guidelines for pediatric preventive care visits:
  • 3 days after leaving the hospitalFamily-(5).jpg
  • 1 week after the first visit
  • At 1, 2, 4, 6 and 9 months
  • At 1 year
  • At 15 and 18 months
  • At 2 years (24 months)
  • Once a year after age 2 until age 21
