What happens at a Well Check exam?
Each check up is different for your child’s specific age and includes all the medical screenings, vaccinations (shots) and laboratory tests recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Every Well Check include a head-to-toe examination of your child. You can talk to your doctor about your child’s development, learning and social behaviors.
Ask questions about your child’s development
