During a well-child visit, staff members collect basic information about the child, including height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate. They may also ask basic questions about the child’s habits, behavior, and development. Our doctors review this information and examine the patient to make sure they’re in good health. In addition, he may also administer necessary vaccinations. If our doctors discover any problems, or if the parent has concerns about the child’s development, we may order additional tests.
