Our providers also use well-child visits to monitor your child’s growth and development. The American Academy of Pediatrics/Bright Futures recommends annual, well-child check-ups for all children ages 3 through 18. Many parents have the misconception that annual physicals are optional after age 5, or that they are only necessary if the child needs a vaccine. However, your child continues to grow through age 18, and monitoring growth and development is important at every age!
Recommendations for wellness exams for newborns through age three vary by age. Please familiarize yourself with the schedule available for download below and schedule your child’s next appointment today.
