Time to schedule Sport and Yearly Physicals

It is that time of year again where your child may need a physical to play sports or to attend a scouting event for this summer/spring. Also, remember if you have a child going into Kindergarten or junior high they need to come in for a physical and updates on immunizations before registration. Our doctors will try to fit every child in but please call as soon as possible to get those scheduled.

We do recommend the following schedule for Well Child Check ups.

Schedule of Well-Child Care Visits

Visits can include physical measurements, patient history, sensory screenings, behavioral assessments, and planned procedures (immunizations, screenings and other tests) at the following suggested intervals:
  • 2 weeks
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 3 years
  • 4 years
  • And once every year thereafter for an annual health supervision visit that includes a physical exam as well as a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.
See you soon!
