Pediatric Wellness Check-Ups
Wellness check-ups are routine appointments scheduled with your child’s pediatrician to evaluate their growth, development and overall health. Well visits are important for preventative care and to ensure children are meeting key developmental milestones as an infant and through adolescence. The American Academy of Pediatrics has established guidelines for a schedule of recommended visits at specific ages.
Well child visits begin a few days after birth and are recommended regularly for the newborn stage as this is a key period of growth and development. Frequent visits can help ensure that any potential concerns are diagnosed early and an appropriate care plan is developed. Pediatric patients will move towards an annual well visit schedule at the age of three.
