Child Preventative Care

One of the most important parts of pediatric care (and most enjoyable!) is regular scheduled Well Child visits. At these visits, our physicians and nurse practitioners will monitor your child's growth and development, administer age-appropriate screening tests (developmental, vision, hearing, among others) perform a thorough physical examination, review and recommend necessary immunizations, and manage chronic health conditions, as appropriate.

Our office follows the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommended schedule for routine preventive care. For most children that includes visits at 3-7 days old, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 yrs, 2 ½ yrs, 3 yrs, then annually after that. If a child has a chronic medical conditions or health concern, your doctor or nurse practitioner may ask you to return sooner.

Please call our office at least 4 weeks in advance to schedule these routine visits, so we can best accomodate your scheduling needs.
