What Is a Well-Check Exam?

Taking your child to the pediatrician or family doctor when they're healthy is just as important as taking your child to the doctor when they are ill. A well-check exam, also known as a well-care, well-baby, or well-child visit focuses on maintaining your child’s health and is a time to discuss preventive care.

What The Doctor Will Cover

  • Growth & development
  • Immunization updates
  • Health & safety
  • Nutrition & physical fitness
  • Teen topics like puberty & acne
  • Discuss learning & behavioral questions
  • Family & social concerns

What To Bring

  • Health insurance information
  • Immunization record
  • Camp/sports forms – your child’s doctor can fill these out as well
  • Yourself! Pediatric patients must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian

Know Your Benefits

  • Some health insurance may not consider additional diagnoses as part of your child’s well-check exam
  • For more information, please see our preventive visit policy
  • Questions about your benefits should be directed to your insurance plan or your employer's Human Resources department
