Well Care Visits Key to Healthy Childhood

posted 10/13/21 -- Well-care visits are important for children of all ages and their families!

These routine health checkups with their pediatrician help you keep your child up to date on the vaccinations they need for daycare or school and serve as a way for you to ensure your child is happy, healthy and thriving.

Each visit includes a complete physical exam during which the healthcare provider checks your child’s weight, height and other vital information.

Pediatricians will also examine your child’s growth and development to identify potential problems. Immunizations, screenings and other preventive care may also be included depending on your child’s age.
