Well-check visits allow a pediatrician to evaluate your child’s physical and mental development and check for any concerns. Depending on the child’s age, these visits may also include a psychological and behavioral assessment. Attending yearly check-ups also helps children build trust with their pediatrician. It is important that your child feels comfortable being open and honest about their health and well-being during their appointments.
