Keeping Kids Healthy
It is important to develop good health care habits, such as regular check-ups, during childhood to set a strong foundation for the many decades in adult life that your child will be responsible for his or her own health care.
Through routine check-ups, your child's pediatrician gets to know your child very well, which gives the pediatrician a better vantage point for prevention. By observing the quality of behaviors, your child's pediatrician can monitor normal growth.
Routine check-ups also gives you an ideal opportunity to ask questions and bring up concerns about your child's health and development.
