How often should my child see their pediatrician?

How often should my child see their pediatrician?

We asked members of our medical staff to answer some common questions they hear from their patients. Read our pediatric providers answer to: How often should my child see their pediatrician?

Answer: It’s important that your child have all of their required vaccinations on time, and infants and toddlers usually have several well child visits during the first few years of life. After age three, all children should have a yearly well child check with a healthcare provider that includes assessment of their growth, development and a physical exam.

Seeing your child every year instead of just when they're sick gives your pediatrician the opportunity to focus on identifying any potential problems and prevention. Teenagers need annual well child visits, too. Their worlds are changing very quickly and they often have many questions that we can help with.
