Well check office visits are done at specific intervals of your child's life. At these visits your child's growth and development are assessed. Your child will be weighed and measured and you will be asked many questions regarding your child's developmental milestones. Vaccines are often given during these visits. As your child becomes older routine lab work will also be done at wellness visits. Some of these may include:
- complete blood count
- lipid screening at appropriate ages
- hearing and vision screenings
During your child's annual well visit, your physician will counsel you on the prevention and treatment of chronic medical issues.
