Why getting a well-child checkup is important
June 29, 2020
“It’s important to get an annual well-child check up to review how your child’s growth and development is progressing.” says ARC Pediatrician, Dr. Helena Gonzalez in this week’s Healthcare Minute. “Your child’s pediatrician can check in on chronic issues, such as asthma, touch base on your child’s social and emotional health, provide timely immunizations against vaccine-preventable diseases, and complete any sports, camp, or band physical forms needed for extracurricular activities.”
Need an easy way to remember to schedule a checkup every year? Dr. Gonzalez recommends booking an appointment around your child’s birthday.
ARC is now offering well-checks on Saturdays at some clinics and is practicing precautionary measures to ensure your health and safety. Book a well-child checkup with any ARC pediatrician today at ARCbooknow.com.
