Well Visits

Regular check-ups are very important to help ensure your child's best possible physical and emotional health. We recommend that you call 1-2 months in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs. Our schedule is now open 13 months in advance to help make scheduling well visits easier.

Well child visits are scheduled allowing sufficient time to discuss interval health, behavior and developmental issues. We welcome questions about any topic that related to your child's health and overall well being! A few examples of issues commonly dealt with in the early years are topics such as nutrition, safety, toilet training, sleeping problems, and discipline.

When possible we encourage both parents to attend these well child exams. Such discussions can be very helpful to you as parents in providing a safe, loving and interesting environment for your child.

We administer immunizations during well visits, according to the schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and required by state law before entering school. At Dr. K Pediatrics, we strongly support routine childhood immunizations.
