Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I schedule a well-child checkup?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends all children have a well-child exam three to five days after birth and again at one month, two months, four months, six months, and one year. After your son or daughter turns one, we recommend a well-child checkup at least once a year.
What happens during a well-child checkup?
During a well-child checkup, we update your child’s immunizations, perform a physical exam, and track your child’s growth and development. We may ask about your child’s diet, mental well-being, physical fitness, and other health-related questions. If you have questions about your child’s development or have noticed something unusual, don’t hesitate to ask your provider.
Are vaccines safe?
Vaccinations are a crucial component of any well-child checkup. All vaccines undergo years of testing before public release. In addition, research from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and others shows that vaccines are safe and crucial in keeping children healthy.
