Routine Children’s Health Services

Well Child Checkups

One of the best ways to keep your child healthy is by having regular well child checkups. These visits make sure infants, children and teens are getting the care they need to stay healthy.

A well child visit includes:

  • Checks to ensure children hit their milestones
  • Comprehensive physical exams
  • Discussions on nutrition, physical fitness and health concerns
  • Early detection of issues before they become serious
  • Growth and development tracking
  • Opportunities to discuss health concerns and questions with an experienced pediatrician
  • Preventive health screenings and recommendations
  • Sports physicals for student athletes
  • Vaccinations

Children aged 3 years and older should see a pediatrician annually with more frequent visits for younger children. Learn more about well child checkups.

Vaccinations

Stay up to date on your child’s immunizations to protect them from life-threatening illnesses. Vaccinations significantly reduce children’s risk of developing dangerous and preventable diseases. Vaccines are a safe and effective way to keep your child, as well as those around them, healthy.

Learn more about immunizations and view children’s vaccine schedules.

Vaccines work by building up a body’s natural defense system. A provider will inject a weakened or killed bacteria or virus into the body. The immune system will then learn how to fight off those infections and can resist infection from those diseases in the future.

Sports Physicals

Sports physicals help parents and student athletes catch health issues in the clinic before they become problems during play. You’ll meet with an experienced provider for a comprehensive exam that ensures your child is healthy enough to participate in sports. Most schools and sports organizations require players to complete a physical before they’re allowed to participate.

During a sports physical, physicians check:

  • Height and weight
  • Heart health
  • Breathing issues

Learn more about sports physicals.

Your child’s regular pediatrician or family medicine doctor can perform a sports physical. Well child checkups also qualify as a physical.
