Our practice follows the American Academy of Pediatrics' recommended schedule for well child care. During the first three years of life, our primary focus during well visits is to monitor each child's growth and development, identify and treat developmental or medical problems, give routine childhood immunizations and provide education and guidance to parents. Topics we commonly discuss include nutrition, sleep questions, speech development, toilet training, school readiness, sibling and family issues, as well as the normal developmental expectations for each stage of early childhood. When you schedule these visits well in advance, you may request your physician of choice.
You can schedule well visits up to 3-4 months in advance. It is recommended that you call or stop by the front desk to make an appointment as soon as you can after your child’s most recent visit. You will receive a reminder call regarding your scheduled appointment. Below is the recommended schedule.
|1st||3-5 days (V. Delivery) / 2 wks (C. Section)|
|Subsequent Visits||Once every year thereafter|
