Purpose of a Well Child Visit
Sometimes parents wonder why their child needs a pediatric visit when they’re not sick. While we do look for signs of disease during well visits, we also evaluate growth, development, and mental health. We look for problems like scoliosis and heart problems. We talk about puberty and risky behaviors. We update immunizations and fill out school forms. We answer all those questions you’ve been wondering about since the last well visit. We also take the time, when your child is not ill, to bond with them and get to know you and your family better. When your child gets the opportunity to talk to their provider and learn to trust them, they are more likely to reach out to us if they have questions or concerns.
