Well-Care Visits

In addition to taking your child to the pediatrician when your child is sick, or needs an examination to participate in a particular activity, routine well-care visits are recommended. Click here to meet our general pediatrics team.

Well-care, well-baby, or well-child visits are routine visits to the child's pediatrician for:

  • physical examinations
  • immunization updates
  • tracking growth and development
  • finding any problems before they become serious
  • information on health and safety issues
  • information on nutrition and physical fitness
  • information on how to manage emergencies and illnesses

Your child's pediatrician can also provide guidance on other issues, such as:

  • behavioral problems
  • learning problems
  • emotional problems
  • family problems
  • socialization problems
  • puberty and concerns about teenage years
