Well Child Visits

Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Yearly well-child visits track a child’s progress as they advance from a newborn to a healthy teenager. Each visit includes a physical exam, with hearing and vision screenings, to check your child’s growth and development. Your child will receive their scheduled immunizations at the right stages to help prevent illness. Nutrition and safety is also discussed as a key element of preventive care. Your doctors are also parents, so they understand the importance of preventive care to help your child develop into a healthy, happy adult.

Same-Day Sick Visits

Sick children are hard on parents. We understand! For this reason, we make every effort to schedule appointments for sick children on the same day you call. Please call in the morning if you would like to schedule a same-day sick visit. When calling, tell us your concerns so that we may determine the next best steps. To ensure safety to all of our patients, all same-day sick visits are by appointment only. Please no walk-ins.

The Importance of Well Child Visits

In a baby’s first year, every month brings changes. During well-baby visits, our pediatricians will check for proper growth and development and answer your questions about eating, sleeping, vaccinations, and any other concerns you may have. Our doctors check your baby’s weight, length, and head circumference at each visit to ensure they’re gaining a healthy amount of weight and growing as expected. At each appointment, you will learn if your child is meeting the developmental milestones established by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

When Should My Baby First See a Pediatrician

The first visit is typically 2-3 days after bringing the baby home from the hospital unless otherwise directed by your pediatrician. Then follow up visits as needed until the baby reaches birth weight.

After that, preventative well visits should occur at the following ages:

  • 2 weeks 
  • 2 months (vaccines)
  • 4 months (vaccines)
  • 6 months (vaccines)
  • 9 months
        • 1 year (vaccines)
        • 15 months (vaccines)
        • 18 months (vaccines)
        • 2 years
        • 2 ½ years
          • 3 years
          • 4 years (vaccines)
          • Annually thereafter

              It is important to continue to schedule your children for yearly examinations through 18 years of life. We follow your child’s growth and maturation through puberty, as well as their mental health. We will help them, and you, navigate the changes and stressors of adolescence. All with the goal of them becoming successful adults.
