By visiting your pediatrician’s office when your child is well, you give the doctor a chance to make a thorough check of your child’s health and development. Your child can be more comfortable and at ease during well visits, which makes it easier for you to focus on your questions and concerns.
Newborns and infants should see a pediatrician often during their first weeks and months. This will allow your doctor to spot potential problems quickly. Annual visits are enough once your child reaches age 3. We can help you stay on track, so your child gets the right care at every stage.
Well-child service may include:
- Height and weight check
- Examination of eyes, ears, nose and throat
- Skin check
- Monitoring of heart and lungs
- Vaccinations at recommended ages
- Time to talk with your child’s pediatrician
