These routine well checks provide our doctors the best opportunity to observe your child’s progress in the areas of physical and mental growth and development. This is also an excellent time talk with parents and to counsel and teach them what is normal child behavior; how to detect problems through screening tests; to provide the required vaccinations, and to further get to know each another.
