The Importance of Regular Checkups

You want your child to stay healthy, and one of the most important things you can do is schedule regular checkups with the pediatrician. Preventive services like regular checkups and immunizations can help your child stay healthy and give you peace of mind. The pediatricians at Burlington Pediatrics in Burlington, MA, provide comprehensive pediatric medical services, including regular checkups, to help your child stay healthy.

What You Need To Know About Regular Checkups for Your Child

Regular checkups should happen at least once each year, and more often if your child suffers from a chronic medical condition like asthma or diabetes. A regular checkup includes many important steps. During a regular checkup, your pediatrician will:

  • Perform a thorough physical examination to check for any signs or symptoms of illness
  • Record your child’s height, weight, and other information to track your child’s growth and development over time
  • Administer vaccinations your child needs to attend daycare or school
  • Answer any questions or discuss any concerns you have about your child’s health
  • Check your child’s vision and hearing

If your child has a chronic medical condition, your pediatrician can oversee the treatment and management of the condition. Referral to a specialist may be indicated in some cases. Some regular checkups may also include screening for cognitive and behavioral issues including ADD, ADHD, autism, and other disorders.
