Pediatrics Q &A

What is the Recommended Schedule For Pediatric Care Visits?

Pediatric care visits should start very early in life. In fact, the first visit should take place when a child is 3 to 5 days old. The next visits should occur at 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. After that, visits are normally scheduled at the 15 month, 24 month, 30 month, and 3 year marks. Once a child reaches 3 years of age, visits will normally happen once a year. This excludes visits for illness or emergencies. These well child visits are an integral part of good health for young children as they develop. During well-child visits, the parents and the doctor will have an excellent opportunity to discuss the child's development. Parents can ask questions, share observations, and get the information they need to help their child be as healthy as possible.

Are Immunizations Really Necessary?

Immunizations are highly recommended as a way to protect children from severe or potentially even fatal health problems. The physician will typically follow the immunization schedule recommended by the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention. The recommended immunizations protect children from a wide range of diseases, including measles, mumps, influenza, hepatitis, tetanus, and many others.

Is a Pediatric-Related Appointment Always Needed?

While an appointment is always best for things like check-ups and immunizations, it is not always possible to have an appointment when it comes to some situations that children get into. After all, accidents do happen where kids are involved! However, Arbor Green Family Medicine offers urgent care appointments when they are needed. Parents should simply call ahead to the office when their child is suddenly ill or has an urgent medical concern. Whether it is a cut, an asthma attack, or something else, call ahead so the staff can work the child into the schedule quickly.
