Is it time for your child's check up?
Check ups should be done once a year on every patient starting at 4 years old. Children younger than 4 are seen much more often for check ups. There are 11 check ups from birth to 3 years. Has your child had a check up lately? Most insurance companies do not require co-pays for check ups now. Check with your insurance company to see if this is true for your insurance. Check ups are preventive in nature and we want to encourage all of our patients to come in for their check ups. Remember, important vaccines are giving at your child's check up. Do not wait, call today.
