Regular health checks

Regular health checks or well-child checkups are recommended for all children. During a health check, your child will receive a physical exam, as well as any needed immunizations. Your child's provider will ask question about issues that might affect your child's health or performance in school. You will also have the chance to discuss your child's development, behavior concerns, nutrition, parenting and safety with your provider. We recommend scheduling your's child health checks according to the schedule below.

Sick visits

We may be able to see your child the same day for sick visits. Same-day sick visits should only be used for minor illnesses or concerns such as colds and flu, earaches and ear infections, skin and scalp rashes, and stomachaches. It is best to call early in the morning for a same-day sick visit.

Appointment cancellations

While keeping appointments is important for your child's treatment, we understand other obligations may arise. If you are unable to make your child's appointment, cancel the appointment as soon as possible. When you don't cancel appointments, you prevent other children from being seen and receiving important care and treatment. We appreciate your help and understanding.
