At Pediatric Associates of Frisco, we recommend yearly preventative well-child visits with our board-certified pediatrician to assess growth, development and general health. We follow the Bright Futures guidelines for care and highly recommend routine immunizations for all children. We also encourage flu shots every year.
Parents often know to take their child to the doctor when they are sick, but did you know that regular well checks are as important for the health and well being of your child?
Routine age appropriate well child checkups build strong, trustworthy relationships among pediatrician, parent and child. Every child and family are unique in their needs. Regular visits to our Pediatrician create a chance to get familiar with your child as they grow. This also helps the doctor provide a more individualistic and exclusive care to match their needs. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular well-child visits to ensure such optimal physical, mental and social health development of a child. This team approach between a family and their doctor ensures the greatest opportunity for good health.
The benefits of a regular Well Child Visits also include preventative immunizations, tracking growth and development, screening for vision and hearing problems, age appropriate lab screenings, oral evaluation and anticipatory guidance appropriate for your child’s age. It also gives parents an opportunity to discuss various common childhood concerns from eating, sleeping, toilet training to school learning and social behaviors.
