What is a well-check exam?

In addition to taking your child to the doctor when your child is ill, or needs an examination to participate in a particular activity, routine well-check exams are recommended.

Well-check, well-care, well-baby, or well-child visits are routine visits to the child's doctor for the following reasons:
  • Physical examinations
  • Immunization updates
  • Tracking growth and development
  • Finding any problems before they become serious
  • Information on health and safety issues
  • Information on nutrition and physical fitness
  • Information on how to manage emergencies and illnesses
Your child's doctor can also provide guidance on other issues, such as the following:
  • Behavioral problems
  • Learning problems
  • Emotional problems
  • Family problems
  • Socialization problems
  • Puberty and concerns about teenage years

When should you schedule a well-check exam?

Austin Regional Clinic pediatricians and family medicine doctors follow the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation for routine well-check exams. Please see the recommended schedule below and click on the link to download the well-check visit newsletter for that age or age range.
