Well Child Visit & Immunization Schedule

From birth to age 2, well child exams are quite frequent since kids grow and develop so rapidly and this is such a critically important phase of their lives. From age 2 – 6, we like to see kids on a yearly basis; then from 6 on, every other year.

There are many reasons for doing well child exams; perhaps the most important reason is to establish and maintain an ongoing relationship and rapport with your family. Trust and confidence between us is always important but especially if an emergency or serious problem ever occurred.

For your convenience, the questionnaire forms for these well child visits may be downloaded from our website and filled out ahead of time.If you need us to fill out forms for school, camp or sports physicals, our policy is that the information we provide on the form must be based on a recent or current office visit. Therefore, if there hasn’t been a complete well child exam during the previous year, we will schedule one for you.
