Health check timeline

Please be on time

American Academy of Pediatrics recommend children get health checks periodically during their first 3 years of life and annually thereafter. Health checks are important for monitoring your child's overall health. Health checks are very extensive office visits and can last for 30 minutes or longer. Our health checks often include hearing testing, vision screening and immunizations.

Babies need health check: 2 weeks old, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months,

9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months and 30 months. Once children reach 3 years of age they need health checks annually.

Because these visits are lengthy we ask that you be on time to these appointments. If you are more than 15 minutes late, your health check appointments will be rescheduled. Our office blocks of certain times for health check appointments depending on your child's age. Usually these appointments are reserved from 2 weeks to 1 month in advance. So please call in and schedule a health check today!
