Is there an age where I should stop having my child examined annually?
No. Ideally, every person should receive an annual physical examination. During these exams, physicians have an opportunity to establish what is normal for a patient and what is not. It is during these examinations that Dr. Kolsi will have a chance to discuss your child’s overall well-being rather than an acute illness they may be experiencing during other office visits.
This annual exam also presents a chance to discuss any challenges your child may have with learning, paying attention, social interactions, eating, sleeping, or other basic functions in a more relaxed appointment than one where your child is ill. Annual checkups are also a chance for your child to become more familiar with Dr. Kolsi, and establish a trusting relationship between doctor and patient.
