Well Child Exams

To ensure your child’s optimal health, it’s important to schedule regular visits with your pediatrician for the first two years of his or her life, when growth and development are so rapid. Once your child reaches three years old, well-child visits can be scheduled less frequently; once a year is recommended.

At your child’s well visit, our caring provider will perform a thorough examination. Appropriate for age and development, a well-child exam includes:

  • Vision and hearing screenings
  • Recording appropriate developmental milestones
  • Recommendations if your child is experiencing developmental delays
  • Discussion of relevant health and safety topics
