What to Expect at your Child’s Well Visit

A yearly physical exam by your pediatrician is an important part of your child's health care. This annual appointment allows the pediatrician to give your child a thorough physical examination, perform routine screenings (e.g., vision and hearing tests), make sure vaccinations are up-to-date and obtain any recommended laboratory testing. It's also a good opportunity to address important questions relating to nutrition, sleep habits, safety and development.

During the check-up, we can often address other problems so you don't have to make another trip to the office. Please note, however, that we will have to bill your insurance for an additional office visit when we address these issues. Depending on the terms of your insurance plan, you may be subject to an additional copay and/or deductible amount for the additional services.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
