The Importance of yearly visits!
Don't fall behind on your child's routine care — a minor issue today could become a major problem tomorrow. Well-child visits allow your pediatrician to examine your child and assess their physical and emotional needs, support their growth and development, and intervene quickly if any issues arise. During an annual wellness visit, your child's pediatrician will:
Determine if your child is meeting growth and developmental milestones for their age.
Evaluate your child's vision and hearing for anything out of the ordinary – it's important to catch these issues early.
Ask about sudden changes in your child's usual activities, mood and overall health.
Assess your child's mental health, and ask questions about how they are coping with school, friends, family and any other outside influences.
Provide immunizations for childhood diseases and common conditions that affect children or young adults, such as measles and HPV.
Get to know your child: their diet, sleeping patterns, nutrition, social interactions, behavior and stress levels
Help your child establish healthy habits and provide tips for families to reinforce these at home.
Check in on how your family is doing and identify any supportive resources or advice related to navigating daily life.
Our providers committed to both the physical and psychological well-being of our patients and families. They strive to promote family well-being and engagement in our office and in our community. Our providers similarly follow CDC and AAP’s antibiotic prescribing guidelines for appropriate usage.
Expecting parents and Newborn Care
Our mission at Frederick County Pediatrics is to help parents as they navigate the newborn and early infancy stages. Our goal is to support moms and dads in providing their babies with the best nutrition possible. We have a dedicated newborn room in our office for comfort and privacy.
