Well Child Appointment Schedule

Regular checkups help us monitor your child's health, catch problems early and prevent diseases. We recommend the following schedule:

Newborn checkup 2-3 days after leaving the hospital

Weight check one week after first visit. (If your child is growing well, this is done by a nurse at no charge. If your child needs to be evaluated by a provider, you will be charged for an office visit.)

Two months

Four months

Six months

Nine months

12 months

15 months

18 months (This visit is not mandatory and may not be covered by your insurance. If you have any concerns about your child's nutrition, growth or development you should schedule an appointment. Also, this is one of the best times to screen for autism. If you have any concerns about autism, please schedule an appointment and complete this form.)

2 years old

Physicals are recommended yearly thereafter. It is particularly important that we see your child between ages 4-6 and ages 11-12.
