What can I expect from an annual checkup?
Annual checkups are an important part of maintaining your child’s overall health. During the appointment, your child will be weighed and measured and their growth will be compared to their previous checkups and national averages.
Dr. Michelle will look in your child’s eyes, ears, nose, and throat. She’ll test their reflexes, muscle tone, and strength, and examine their body for any obvious physical problems.
You will be asked questions about their development including how well they eat, sleep, play, interact with others, and perform in school. You will be asked about any illnesses, surgeries, hospitalizations, or accidents they have experienced that were treated by other physicians.
Your child may have immunizations at their annual checkup if it is a part of their immunization schedule.
The entire process, from start to finish, is designed to help your child be comfortable with Dr. Kolsi and to answer any questions you may have about your child’s health.
