Appointment types may vary. Well-child appointments, also called physicals, are very extensive. Growth and development are assessed and health and wellness issues are discovered. These appointments may take a total of an hour of your time. In general, follow-up appointments are brief 5-10 minutes unless it is about a chronic illness. Urgent care/same day/sick visits are generally 10-15 minutes. We try hard to keep same day appointment availability. We also offer extended visits, usually 30 minutes to discuss chronic issues such as sleep problems, behavior problems, and chronic abdominal pain, headaches, and more. These appointments are offered on a more limited basis.
Check-ups or physicals are recommended at 1 months, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 year, 3 year, 4 year, and 5 year. After age 5, well-visits are recommended at least every other year through adolescence and yearly for children playing sports. Please call at least 2 weeks in advance to schedule your appointment. Be sure to check with your health care insurance about coverage for well-child visits. Please remember to bring your child's immunization card to all visits.
Your time is just as valuable as ours. We have set aside time in our schedules just for your child. If you are 15 minutes late for your appointment, it may be necessary for you to reschedule. We may be able to work you back into the physician's schedule, but a wait may be necessary.
