Well visits / physicals
To ensure the health and well being of your child, we follow the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) schedule for well visits (https://www.healthychildren.org/English/family-life/health-management/Pages/Well-Child-Care-A-Check-Up-for-Success.aspx). At each well visit we will assess your child’s growth and development. Vision checks are done starting at age 1 through digital screening, or manually with the eye chart for ages 8 and above. Iron and lead levels are done routinely for ages 1 and 2, and fingerstick hemoglobin levels will be done at every physical thereafter. We also routinely perform urine testing and depression screens on all teens, as well as post-partum depression screenings on moms for the first 6 months of age..
