When we take on a new patient, we begin a scheduled 'Well Child Check Up' program. This follows the development and growth of your child at different ages and milestones with regular scheduled office visits. This is also a chance for you to raise questions and concerns about your child’s development, behavior, and general well-being. Sometimes such questions are difficult to raise when you are in the office for a sick visit.
Having regular Well Child Check Ups and raising the concerns that matter most to you are key ingredients in helping us know you and your child, and in forming a reliable and trustworthy relationship. Your doctor will not only listen to your concerns, but can also detect and diagnose problems that you may not be aware of, such as problems with growth and development, heart murmurs, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, anemia and many other issues that can be potentially significant if not detected and treated early.
