Well-Care Visits

In addition to taking your child to the pediatrician when your child is sick, or needs an examination to participate in a particular activity, routine well-care visits are recommended.

Well-care, well-baby, or well-child visits are routine visits to the child's pediatrician for:

  • Physical examinations
  • Immunization updates
  • Tracking growth and development
  • Finding any problems before they become serious
  • Information on health and safety issues
  • Information on nutrition and physical fitness
  • Information on how to manage emergencies and illnesses
