Children (3 – 12)
Routine well-child visits(usually once per year after 6 years of age) allow your child’s doctor to keep a close eye on your child’s general health and development.
The doctor typically will:
- Measure and record your child’s weight and height.
- Check your child’s blood pressure.
- Examine your child for any visible problems.
- Ask you about your child’s eating and sleeping habits.
- Review your child’s immunization record. Needed immunizations are given or scheduled.
- The doctor may talk with both you and your child to get a sense of your child’s mental, emotional, and social development
These visits with your pediatrician are a good time to discuss any concern or questions you may have.
