What happens during pediatric wellness visits?

During children’s wellness visits at Manchester Pediatric Associates, friendly staff members greet your child and check their temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They assess their height, weight, growth, and development.

Pediatricians review your child’s medical history and ask about developmental milestones, symptoms they may have, and medications they might take. They complete a physical exam to look for signs of illness or disease and evaluate cognitive and physical development. Providers can assess children’s speech, hearing, vision, and more.

Depending on your child’s health, symptoms, and risk factors, their pediatrician may recommend a nasal or throat swab, urine test, blood test, X-rays, or other diagnostic imaging procedures. They can treat illnesses, diseases, or injuries, and refer out to highly-trained specialists as needed.

How often should I schedule pediatric wellness visits?

You can schedule wellness visits 4-5 days after the birth of a new baby and as needed to ensure exceptional growth and development. Annual (yearly) wellness checkups are a good idea for kids ages 3 and older. Pediatric specialists personalize each wellness visit schedule to meet your child’s unique needs.
