Bringing your child in for regular well child checkups is an important part of his health care. These visits allow your doctor to evaluate your child’s health, growth, and development. This also gives you the opportunity to address various issues that may be of concern to you. Many parents will bring a list with them to the checkup.

Our practice follows the guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics for routine well child immunizations and screening tests. Below is a list of the well child visit schedule.

All of our physicians feel very strongly about the importance of vaccinating your child against preventable diseases. If you have any concerns about vaccinations, please speak with your doctor.
