Well Child Exam

Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Pediatric well-child visits are an important part of your child’s health from infancy through the adolescents.

Each visit includes a complete physical examination along with recommended vaccinations. This well child exam will assess your child’s growth and development while identifying underlying conditions that exist. Height, weight, and other important information are recorded in our electronic medical record. Hearing, vision, and other assessments are a part of the well child visit. Such preventive care and immunizations are an important part for raising healthy children.

Well-child visits are also key times for communication with your pediatrician. The following are common topics that are often discussed, normal childhood development, nutrition, sleep, safety, parenting, and education. Make the most of these visits by writing down your most important questions and concerns to bring with you to your child’s exam.
