Frequently Asked Questions
How can my child and I prepare for their visit?
Because there is a lot of information to share during well-child visits, it’s best to come prepared. Before your appointment, make a list of any changes you've noticed about your child's health or development. This list should also include any information you think could be helpful, such as diet, lifestyle habits, and any information from their school. Lastly, prepare a list of any questions you may have for your child's pediatrician. Having this information written down helps to ensure that you don’t miss anything during your visit.
Does my teen still need to have well-child visits?
Yes! Well-child visits are important for teens as well. As children grow into adolescents, their healthcare needs change significantly. Regular check-ups allow your pediatrician to assess any potential health risks, update vaccinations, and discuss mental and emotional health topics as well.
