Well-Child Visits allow pediatricians to focus on age-appropriate development for a child’s overall health and wellbeing. Typically visits focus on developmental milestones, nutrition, safety, your child, and your family’s emotional health for the benefit of the child.
 

Benefits of Well-Child Visits:

Prevention
•    Get required immunizations
•    Ask question about development, nutrition, and safety both in and out of the home 

Tracking Growth and Development 
•    Review child’s growth since his or her last visit
•    Discuss your child's development such as milestones, social behaviors, and learning 

Discuss Concerns 
•    Make a list of topics you want to talk about with your child's pediatrician. 
•    Share your concerns with your child’s pediatrician at the start of their visit. 

Team Approach 
•    Regular visits create strong, trustworthy relationships among pediatrician, parents, and child. 
•    A team approach helps develop the best physical, mental, and social health of a child.
