Well Visits

Well-Visits for Infants, Toddlers & Adolescents

What is a well-child visit?

Well-child visits are important for a child’s health. Parents and doctors want to be sure the child is growing and developing normally. Well-child visits typically start a few days after children are born and continue until they turn 18. 

Well child visits (or physicals) are important, even when children are healthy. Well child check-ups will help you track your child’s development and help to keep your child healthy. Well visits include but are not limited to the following:

  • Health exams 
  • Tests, such as vision, hearing and lab services
  • Immunization Shots (vaccinations)
  • Tracking growth and development (height, weight, etc.)
  • Medical referrals to specialists as needed

Well child visits let you and your child get to know our providers and the providers can get to know you and your child. These visits are the time to ask and receive information about:

  • Health and safety
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Physical fitness and general health care
  • Sleep habits
  • Growth and development
  • Behavior and discipline
  • Problems such as emotional, socialization, learning, or concerns about family problems or about puberty and teenage years

It is important to have a primary care provider and to use the same provider as much as possible for your child’s health care needs. At Temecula Family Medicine, our providers:

  • Help you get care for your child
  • Provide care when your child is sick
  • Know your child’s medical history and the family history
  • Keep track of your child’s medical services, such as immunizations/vaccinations
  • Provide you important information about your child’s growth and development
  • Refer your child to a specialist when needed
  • Help to coordinate your child’s health needs

Your child will get a complete exam at the well child visit. Be sure to make an appointment for your child if you have not done so recently.
