Well Child Visits

To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups. Please call our office at (818) 461-9690 several weeks in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs. You may also fill out a postcard at the time of your child's visit so that we may remind you to schedule the next check-up.

We follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics for periodic well child visits to monitor the growth and development of your child. Our providers perform a complete physical exam including feeding, nutrition, and developmental assessment with anticipatory guidance.  Beginning at age three, we include vision, hearing and urinalysis screening, if possible. We follow the guidelines of the CDC pertaining to the administration of childhood vaccinations. Immunizations are important not only for your child's health, but for the health of other children, and the community. The list below is the recommended schedule for Well Child Visits along with links to handouts about each visit.
