For Parents

Did you know that one of the primary goals of pediatric care is not just to treat your children when they are sick, but also to offer guidance and support when they are healthy? Well-child visits are an important part of your child’s health and development.  During a well-child visit, we are primarily concerned with observing growth and development, early detection of illness through screening and laboratory tests, vaccines/immunizations (read further information on vaccines), counseling and advising parents and your children, and getting to know one another.

We strongly recommend the following routine office visit schedule, to keep your child healthy as he or she continues to grow and develop.

  • 24 to 48 hours after hospital discharge visit
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  •  12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 30 months

After the 2  1/2-year well-child visit, children are seen once a year. The yearly visits continue to give you the opportunity to ask questions about your child’s physical development and behavior. We are happy to answer your questions and address any concerns that you may have. Don’t ever be afraid to ask questions about your child!
