Well-child visits

One of the most important things you can do as a parent is to get your child consistent preventative medical care. This gives you a chance to ask any questions or voice any concerns about your child, and gives your child's provider a chance to identify potential health problems or developmental delays before they become major concerns.

Your child should see a provider at least once a year. Visits are more frequent for babies and toddlers.

It is good to talk to your child about what to expect during a pediatrician visit. Your child's visit might include:

  • A check of height and weight.
  • Blood or urine tests.
  • Tests of reflexes.
  • A check of the heartbeat.
  • A check of breathing (lung function).
  • A check of the ears and throat.
  • A visual exam of the skin.
  • Time to ask questions.

Your child can also receive necessary immunizations, and can often have school and sports physical forms completed, during annual exams.
