Well Child Care
The cornerstone of your child's health is "well child care." This is a special time set aside for you to discuss your child's physical, emotional, social, and developmental health with your physician. Our physicians will discuss your child's growth and development as well as age-specific related issues in regards to safety, behavior, nutrition, and immunizations.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends well-baby checkups at 2-4 days of age and then at 2, 4, 6, 9 and 12 months of age. In early childhood, middle childhood and adolescence, the AAP schedule calls for checkups at 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months, and each year starting at age 3. Our pediatricians see patients through age 19.
Regular health exams keep your children healthy and can prevent illness and disabilities.
Age appropriate immunizations and labs are ordered at these visits based on the current recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Some insurance carriers do not follow the current recommendations. You will need to determine what your carrier covers before you receive ordered immunizations.
