Why Are Wellness Exams Necessary?

You work hard to keep your kid healthy and safe, from making sure they’re eating their veggies to ensuring they wear helmets when riding their bikes. Check out these benefits that well child exams from AGC Pediatrics provide.

Wellness Exams Let’s talk…

Wellness checks, sometimes referred to as well-child care, are important for the overall health of your child because they allow you, your child, and your pediatrician to discuss important concerns and questions. Our board-certified pediatricians at AGC Pediatrics recommend that parents schedule at least an annual wellness check; however, parents may schedule well-child check-ups whenever any important healthcare questions or concerns arise.

Pediatric wellness checks allow parents and doctors to create a team approach to healthcare, which promotes the developmental, emotional and physical health of the child, and allows pediatricians to learn more about each individual child. Our board-certified team of pediatricians at AGC Pediatrics offer you and your child a comfortable, friendly, faith-based pediatric healthcare.

Check out these benefits that well child exams from AGC Pediatrics provide:

  • Check-in for growth: height, weight and BMI. This helps ensure your kids are on the right track for appropriate growth for their age and physical build.
  • Recognize any potential problems. A well child check-up helps your pediatrician foresee any potential issues that your child may encounter and offer preventative care or treatment.
  • Test hearing and vision. Help your child start their summer off right with a hearing and vision check during their well child exam. These simple tests can help set them up for success in the summer season and in school.
  • Stay up-to-date on immunizations. Vaccinating your children is a great way to keep them safe and healthy. Well child exams are a good time for them to receive immunizations and booster shots necessary for school in the fall.
  • A complete physical exam. Well child exams help get kids ready for summer sports with a physical exam.
