Children have very unique and specific needs from infancy to adolescence and young adulthood. Your child's primary care doctor is here to be your partner in keeping your child safe and well – backed by resources including our region's nationally recognized pediatric hospital, Wolfson Children's Hospital.
Benefits of a relationship with your child's primary care doctor:
Childhood and the teenage years are a time of tremendous growth and change. There are very specific, evidence-based exams, immunizations and information that can help support your child’s health.
Your child’s primary care doctor will follow the latest guidelines for providing well child visits to assess growth and development, and for providing screening exams at key times to identify and address any issues at the earliest possible time.
Your child’s doctor can guide you in screening guidelines for:
- Well child visits
- Developmental assessments
- Sports physicals
- Behavioral health screenings, such as ADHD and gifted testing
