We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended schedule for well child visits. At Signature Pediatrics we will take the time to answer all of your questions while also providing guidance on many topics to maximize healthy physical, emotional, educational and social development of your child.
The benefits of regularly scheduled Well Checks include:
Tracking Physical Growth and Health
Regular monitoring of height and weight milestones as well as other physiological aspects of your child’s health such as sleep, nutrition and skill development will ensure optimal, healthy growth.
Monitoring Psychological Development
Every check-up is an opportunity to discuss topics such as social development, behavior, learning and expectations for changes the next months or year may bring.
Building Healthy Relationships
Regular visits allow your child to become more comfortable with the pediatrician, which leads to greater trust and ultimately better communication. This becomes especially important with the rapid changes and challenges the teen years may bring.
The well visit also provides the perfect opportunity to discuss age related safety issues, address parental concerns to prevent issues before they arise, and to identify any problems early and take corrective action.
Signature Pediatrics follows the AAP, ACIP, and CDC recommendations to prevent serious and life threatening illnesses. Click here to see the latest versions of these schedules.
