Start the New Year off With a Well-Child Exam
Now is the perfect time to get a head start on your yearly to-do list, including annual physicals. A well-child exam is something your child should have done each year to make sure their growing bodies are reaching their full potential. Health benefits have reset, and you don’t want to let them go to waste, so why not get a jump start on it now?
Here is what Village Pediatrics is doing to ensure you and your child’s safety:
- Patients wait in the car instead of the waiting room
- Anyone 3 years and older must wear a mask
- Only one parent is allowed into the office with their child
- Temperatures are taken at the front door along with a COVID-19 pre-screening check
The benefits of annual well-child exams
Preventative health. While we take pride in meeting children where they are in their health journey, we also strive to help your child reach optimal health in the future as well. Prevention methods such as age-appropriate vaccines and routine blood tests are just a few of the ways we offer assistance to make sure their health progress is on track.
Access to superior care. We are here when your child needs us, not just once a year. Get your child’s needs addressed with a familiar face they know and trust. For your convenience, we also offer weekend and same-day appointments so your child can visit anytime, for any need.
Build a relationship. There is a sense of comfort that comes with bringing your child to the same care team for their appointments. Not to mention the added bonus of getting to know your child better. If a health concern were to arise in the future, our providers would be better equipped to handle their needs over someone new, as we have quick access to your child’s health history.
Gain a partner. You may face various challenges as children grow, but you don’t have to do this alone. Partnering with a professional in children’s health provides you and your child more security as they develop from birth into early adulthood.
Your child’s annual physical is something you don’t want to delay. Even if your child seems perfectly healthy, it’s important for them to visit a health provider annually to regularly monitor their health and catch anything concerning early on.
