Well Visits & Physicals
Well visits began at birth and typically occur at 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24 and 30 months, then annually thereafter. During these visits, your provider will go through any questions or concerns you may have and conduct a physical exam. We will also address your child’s growth and development from infancy to young adulthood. They will then order any needed vaccines. Completed physical forms and paperwork will be then returned to you.
Our priority is to help you raise happy, healthy, productive children and young adults. Our providers follow the current American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Bright Futures Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents.

To make sure your child’s asthma condition is maintained properly, our providers like to see them periodically throughout the year. Typically, children with an asthma diagnosis are seen for an asthma visit 6 months following their well visit. During the visit, their provider will gather pertinent information regarding your child’s condition.
For children over 5 years of age, we will review their pulmonary function test (PFT’s), or spirometry. You will receive an “Asthma Action Plan” that is personalized to fit your child’s needs and condition. This form is for you to turn into your child’s school or daycare so they are able to act accordingly in the event of an emergency.
We make educating parents a priority at our practice. Our goal is to empower parents and our patients so they are confident while on their own. We provide medication teaching and review at each asthma visit. If your child has an asthma diagnosis and you are unsure if their current treatment plan is working, please download the appropriate form below and bring the completed form to your next appointment.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
To make sure ADD or ADHD and other types of ongoing diseases are maintained properly, our providers like to see these patients periodically throughout the year. We use a family-centered approach to decide which treatment option is best for your child.
Prior to the initial ADD visit, you will need to return or bring with you the following:
- Completed copies of initial parent and teacher Vanderbilts
- Recent report cards
- School learning evaluations
- Copy of IEP (if available)
The provider will use the above information to provide an appropriate diagnosis. After your child is diagnosed, we will see them monthly until the treatment plan is adjusted to achieve the best possible results. After that follow-up visits will occur every 3 months to maintain these results.
