Well Child Visits

To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups.  We recommend that you call our office 6-8 week(s) in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.

Well Visits/Physicals - Well visits for babies are scheduled at ages:  1 week, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 1 year, 15 months, 18 months and 2 years.  Immunizations are usually given at all visits except the 1 week and 2 year visits.

Children over 2 years should be scheduled for a well visit once a year, usually around their birthdays.  Immunizations for older children are normally done at ages 4 or 5, and at age 11.

Well visits include a complete physical examination, in addition to discussions and guidance regarding your child's social and physical development, nutrition and other health issues.  At ages three and over, hearing and vision screens are also done as part of the visit.
