Wellness visits are designed to allow regular surveillance of your child’s growth and development. These visits are more frequent during the first two years of life but once your child turns 3 years old, they become annual visits. With regular appointments to the pediatrician, you can ensure that your child stays on track with expected growth parameters and milestones. In the instance that there are unexpected findings, addressing concerns in a timely manner can make a significant difference. Age-appropriate immunizations are typically administered at well visits and serve as an essential part of helping to protect your child from certain childhood illnesses.
