Well-child exams help determine whether your child is growing and developing properly. Your child should have regular well-child exams through adolescence.
Our pediatricians provide preventive care for healthy children and treat children who are ill or injured. Caring for newborns, children and adolescents, our pediatricians are experts at child development assessment as well as common pediatric behavioral and emotional issues. Regular well-child visits provide our pediatricians the opportunity to follow the growth and development of your child through adolescence. This also can be a time to discuss any concerns regarding overeating, sleeping, toilet training, social behaviors, or attention and learning problems. Our pediatricians are trained in these issues and can provide reassuring guidance to you and your child. Regular well-child visits are important for forming a steady and trustworthy relationship with your pediatrician as your child grows and develops.
As specialists in childhood diseases, our pediatricians do anticipatory guidance and help coordinate specialty care when needed. Our pediatric specialists at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children will work closely with your child’s pediatrician as part of an integrated network of primary care services.

- Well-child care from birth through adolescence
- Well-baby/child checkups
