What happens during my child’s appointments?

Vital signs check

A pediatric specialist weighs your child and checks their height, head circumference in babies and young children, pulse, blood pressure, temperature, and other vital signs.

Medical history review

Your doctor reviews your child’s medical history, developmental milestones, behaviors, lifestyle habits, and more. They ask about past diagnoses, surgeries, and medications your child might be taking.

Physical exam

General pediatrics care includes a physical exam. Your doctor evaluates your child’s eyes, ears, throat, vision, hearing, abdomen, breathing, heartbeat, and more. 

Diagnostic testing

Your pediatrician might recommend diagnostic tests, including urine tests, blood tests, nasal or throat swabs, allergy and asthma testing, ADHD evaluation, X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

Treatment

Treatment, if necessary, might include medications, dietary supplements, lifestyle changes, therapy, allergy treatments, specialist referrals, and more. Your pediatrician discusses treatment options with you to find one you’re comfortable with.

How often should I schedule an appointment?

Schedule a sick visit if your child has a high fever, rash, or other unusual or long-lasting symptoms. You should schedule well-child exams annually, or more often in babies and young children under three.
