WHY DOES MY CHILD NEED A WELL CHILD EXAM?

Everyone knows to bring your child to the Dr.’s office when they’re sick, but did you know they should have an annual well-child exam? These are a few things we do at Well Check-ups that we don’t do routinely for sick visits:

  • Check immunization status
  • Monitor growth and development
  • Monitor and discuss nutrition and eating habits, screen for anemia
  • Discuss sleep patterns and problems
  • Screen vision, hearing, scoliosis, and kidney function
  • Perform sports physicals or pre-op physicals at the same visit
  • Check cholesterol, triglycerides and blood glucose if needed

 

Also, most insurances now cover annual well checks at no cost to the patient, including NO COPAY.
