Well Visit

Well child visits are essential to the well-being of children. We follow the well child check up schedule that is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Well child visits involve evaluation of growth, development, nutrition, and safety and may involve age-appropriate vaccinations and labs. The chart below includes the routine well child check visit schedule and vaccinations and screens that may apply.
