Well Child Check-ups

Well child check-ups are important parts of your child’s care. At these appointments, your child’s growth and development will be assessed and any questions you have can be addressed.

We will monitor your child’s growth and development at each well child check. This is also a great time to bring any concerns you may have to your doctor’s attention. A physical exam will be performed at each visit and formal hearing and vision screens will be administered when developmentally appropriate.

Alabama newborn screening as well as screenings for lead, anemia, cholesterol and others will be performed as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics or at other times if indicated.

Vaccinations will be carried out as per the CDC/AAP recommended schedule.
