What is well-child care?

A routine well-child visit at Carnegie Hill Pediatrics is a regularly scheduled appointment to assess the growth and development of your child from birth to adulthood. During these appointments, your pediatrician completes a comprehensive physical, including disease screening and prevention.

These routinely scheduled appointments allow your pediatrician to develop a relationship with both you and your child, building trust and familiarity.
