24 Apr Well-Child Visits: Why Are They Important?
Following the recommended schedule of well-child visits with your family primary care provider can have a wide range of benefits for you and your child.
What is a well-child visit? It is a physical examination recommended at regular intervals based on the rate of growth during childhood. Immunizations, screening tests, and discussion about your child’s development are all part of these check-ups.
Well-child visits are a good time to raise concerns with your child’s primary care provider. Bring your questions about sleep, eating, or other behaviors.
These check-ups are important for all children, even if they’re healthy. They are an opportunity to improve care and prevent future problems, as well as to develop a strong relationship between the provider, parent and child.
