Well-Child Checkups

Well-Child Checkups

Well-child checkups are an important part of your child's care. While it’s important to bring your child into the office when he/she is sick, well-child visits are a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child’s development, behavior, nutrition, safety and overall well-being. Our doctors use these checkups as a way to educate not only parents, but children too. Well-child checkups are strongly recommended as a part of preventative pediatric care.
