Discover the benefits of bringing your child to our office for routine checkups.well child visits

A healthy child begins with the right doctor. We know that at some point your little one is going to need medical care, whether it’s something simple like handling a high fever or long-term treatment for conditions like asthma. This is when it’s important to have a pediatrician in Eden Prairie, MN, that you can trust. Our team of pediatricians is here to make sure that your little one always gets the preventive care they deserve through wellness checkups.

What is a well-child visit?

While newborns and infants have a different schedule when it comes to how often they need to see their pediatrician, children over the age of 3 years old will still need to come in once a year to see our Eden Prairie children’s doctor for a checkup.

These checkups are designed to check your child’s physical, mental, and even emotional health, and these checkups are not to be missed (no matter how healthy your child might seem). These visits are comprehensive because they are designed to help prevent health problems from occurring.

During your child’s checkup we will:

  • Examine their vitals
  • Make sure they are meeting developmental milestones
  • Screen for certain illnesses
  • Administer necessary immunizations
  • Providing advice and health education to both children and their parents

As we mentioned before, we focus on both the physical and mental wellbeing of your little one to make sure they are getting the proper care they need both from us and in the home. We also know parents will have a lot of questions along the way, and when you come in for your child’s appointment it’s a good idea to jot down those questions so that we can answer them for you.

Have concerns about your child’s health, whether it’s physical symptoms or behavioral issues? We are here to help with all of those issues and more. Remember, our medical team wants to work with you to make sure your little one always has thorough and individualized medical care.

If it’s time to schedule your little one’s next checkup, or if you have questions about the pediatric medical services we offer, don’t hesitate to call All About Children Pediatrics in Eden Prairie, MN. Your child’s health is our top priority!
