Dr. Alan CadizWarmly Welcome to our Pediatric Practice, Dr. Alan Cadiz

Lauderdale and completed his residency training at the University Of Florida College Of Medicine in Jacksonville, Florida, where he also served as Chief Resident. We are all very excited to have Dr. Cadiz join the Sawgrass Pediatrics Family.

Cartoon VaccineVaccines You Should Know About
Prevnar 13 - A new Pneumococcal vaccine was recently approved by the FDA and is now available in our office. This vaccine is superior to the older Prevnar 7 Vaccine, protecting children against 13 strains of the bacteria as opposed to 7 for the prior vaccine. As with all new vaccines, the Prevnar 13 may not be covered by all insurance plans. The cost for the new vaccine is $160.00 and we strongly encourage immunization with the Prevnar 13 vaccine. The vaccine may be available for free through the local health departments.

In office circumcisions for infants less than 6 weeks of age
Most circumcisions are performed in the hospital soon after birth, but often times, it may not be practical at that time. If you have a newborn who did not get circumcised in the hospital, and you now desire this procedure, we perform circumcisions in the office for infants less than 6 weeks of age. Contact a member of our staff for more information and to set up an appointment in our Coral Springs or Boca Raton office as soon as possible.

Fluoride Varnish Treatments Available for patients ages 1-3yrs old
Healthy teeth contribute to the overall health of a child. We are pleased to announce a new development at Sawgrass Pediatrics for your child’s smile. We now offer Fluoride Varnish treatment for teeth. This service will be available to children between the ages of 12 months and 3 years in our Coral Springs and Boca Raton offices. Your child’s pediatrician will let you know at his or her next checkup if your child is a candidate for Fluoride Varnish.
