Routine Well Child Exams (Physicals) provide a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know your child as well as your family’s values.  Well Child Exams give us an incredible opportunity to insure proper growth and development in their early years, allow your child to become comfortable with their physician once they are school age, and help up to establish a rapport with your child that we will rely upon in the teen years as we counsel them on how to prevent accidental injury and teach them how to care for themselves.

The recommended schedule for routine well care is as follows:

2-3 Days after hospital discharge

10 - 14 Days

2 months

4 months

6 months

9 months

12 months

15 months

18 months

24 months

30 months

3-18 years - annually

The recommended schedule for physical examinations for children ages 11-18 is one per year. For sports clearance, schedule your child's physical after April 15th to be valid for the next school year.
