WELL CARE AND PHYSICAL EXAMS
Request Well Care appointments via the Patient Portal, at any time, from any internet device.
Well visits, especially from infancy through the pre-school years are important. They allow us to assess your child’s growth and development, and regularly immunize. More importantly, they provide a time to discuss your questions and concerns and help prepare you for future developmental stages and routine illnesses.
Scheduling physical exam appointments in advance will allow you to choose the physician and appointment time which is most convenient for you.
As a rule, we only schedule two physical exam appointments together per family, per day. However, if you have triplets less than 18 months old, we will see them together.
As a courtesy, our offices will confirm all physical exam appointments 48 hours in advance. If you must cancel your appointment, you must call at least 24 hours in advance, or you will be assessed a $40 missed appointment fee.
Regular well-child exams are routinely scheduled at 2-5 days, two weeks, four weeks, than at 2, 4, 6, 9, 12,15, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months. After that exams are scheduled yearly.
Please note, for physicals made from 12 months and over, visits must be on or after the child’s birthday due to immunization schedules and insurance company rules.
Most facilities accept a physical within the past year. In order for us to complete these forms your child must have had a physical here within the last year. If not, please contact our office to schedule one.
