Walk-In Well-Checks Available Now
May 22, 2019
It’s the season for well-child exams. These important visits focus on maintaining your child’s health and are a great time for parents and caregivers to discuss preventive care and establish healthy habits.
Focus on Health
The well-child exam allows you and your child’s doctor to focus on the ongoing physical, mental, and emotional development of your child to ensure they are growing and hitting the milestones as expected. The well-check visit also allows your child to get the vaccines needed to protect her or him from disease, and to enroll in school for the next year.
For teens it is a time to further develop their relationship with their doctor as they enter the confusing period of adolescence. We encourage parents to help their teens feel comfortable turning to a trusted medical professional for advice and care. Encourage your teen to make their own appointment. This will help give her or him a sense of independence and ownership over their own health.
Walk-in well-checks are available in June and July. Walk-ins are first come, first served during specific hours at each clinic. Click here to see the walk-in hours for each ARC clinic.
In July and August, we have extended hours for well-checks. These visits are available to patients entering kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall, ages 5 to 18 only. Many parents schedule well-check exams during the summer when their child’s schedule may be easier to manage.
You can book an appointment for your child, as a new or established patient:
