Kids Health at The Longstreet Clinic, P.C.
Well child doctor’s visits are important for ensuring a healthy child. From birth to early adolescence, parents will witness the most changes and rapid growth in their child. It is advised that he or she be evaluated regularly by a pediatrician during this significant time of their lives. These visits will include a review of patient history, a complete pediatric physical, an update on immunizations and a growth and development assessment.
The frequency of the recommended check up appointments vary with the age of your child and the immunizations that are advised for that time. It is recommended that your newborn visits the Doctor’s office six times before he or she reaches one year and eight times before eighteen months. With the rapid rate of development infants experience within their first eighteen months, regular visits allow doctors to supervise their growth and progression. Regularity of appointments may also vary as an illness occurs or if your child suffers an ongoing medical condition.
Check up appointments also provide parents with knowledge of their child’s development so they are better able to identify the proper care they need to deliver. These visits also offer an opportunity to ask questions or address any anxieties you may have regarding your child’s health or development.
As pediatricians and parents share a common goal for assuring that children are healthy, regularly scheduled appointments can identify any areas of concern or potential risk. By recognizing these alarming matters early, doctors are able to tend to the problem, preventing more serious conditions that could arise in the future.
Many annual preventive exams are covered by insurance providers at no cost to the patient, so contact your provider for more details.
