Regular visits with a pediatric healthcare team are an important part of your child's preventative health plan. Wellness visits are your opportunity to make sure your child is meeting his/her best potential, physically and developmentally. They also provide screening tests and important immunizations against disease. Pediatricians and pediatric providers diagnose and treat a broad range of medical problems and work with other experts when sub-specialty care is needed.
