How often should my child be seen by a physician for routine exams?

During infancy, children should be seen by a physician two weeks after birth, then again at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months and at 18 months to assure proper growth and development. We also take the time to answer any questions you may have. Whenever possible take your child to the same physician so she/he gets to know your child. Often times, a doctor familiar with your child can pick up any unusual behavior better than a physician who sees your child for the first time. During those visits feel free to ask as many questions as you like. The provider will be more than happy to answer them for you. During age 2 to 6 your child should be seen annually, then every other year during preteen and teen years.
