Keeping Kids Healthy

It is important to focus on the physical, mental and social well-being of your children. There are the basics of healthy food choices, adequate sleep, frequent activity and safety. However, it is also important that your child get regular checkups with their primary care provider. During these well-child visits, we ensure that your child is developing at the appropriate rate. It also allows us to catch and prevent health problems that may affect them later in life.

In addition to regular wellness visits, school-aged children should see their provider for any of the following:

  • significant weight loss or gain
  • sleeping problems or a sudden change in behavior
  • fever of higher than 102
  • rashes or skin infections
  • frequent sore throats
  • breathing problems
