Regular well-child exams are an invaluable time for parents and providers to focus on preventive care to help keep your children healthy. Each visit includes a complete physical examination to assess your child’s growth and development, as well as to help identify problems early. Hearing and vision screening, vaccinations, and other tests will be a part of some visits.
Well-child visits are key times for communication. Expect to be given information about normal development, nutrition, sleep, safety, and other important topics for parents. It is an ideal time for you to ask questions about your child. Make the most of these visits by writing down your most important questions and concerns to bring with you.
The scheduled intervals for well-child exams:
- Newborn Visit (2-3 days after discharge from the hospital)
- 2 weeks
- 1 month
- 2 months
- 4 months
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 12 months (1 year)
- 15 months
- 18 months

In an effort to help you become familiar with Michael Middleton MD, Lorena Acosta MD, Brad Von Edwins DO, Christine May APRN, Briana McLain APRN, Lucy Aitcheson APRN, Lauren Collins APRN, and Joanie Gavin PA well-child visits from birth through 18 months will be scheduled on rotation between all providers. After your child turns 18 months, you may schedule well-child visits with the provider of your choice.
Between scheduled well visits, appointments should be made any time your child seems ill or whenever you have concerns about your child’s health or development. We offer a walk-in time daily, from 8:15 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.,(*PLEASE CALL- due to COVID walk-in has been suspended*) in order to quickly assess your child for acute illnesses that have emerged overnight. More complicated illnesses or ongoing symptoms should not be seen during walk-ins time slots in order to allow adequate time for discussion. After this walk-in time, all visits are by appointment.
