Annual exams are important–even when your child is healthy.

Starting at birth, regular provider visits and immunizations are important. After age 2, your child should have a health exam each year, during which the pediatrician or family medicine practitioner will:

  • Review your child's developmental milestones.
  • Ensure that your child receives all needed immunizations.
  • Provide age-appropriate screening tests, such as blood pressure and vision tests.
  • Perform any needed laboratory tests such as a lead poisoning check.
  • Explain the results of any tests and procedures.
  • If treatment is necessary, explain the options thoroughly.
  • Answer your questions.
  • Make referrals to specialists if needed.
  • Record the care your child received.

These routine well-care visits can also provide parents with information about their child's development, as well as guidance on parenting practices.
