Well Visits Q & A

What is a well visit?

A well visit is a health checkup that focuses on the special needs of children and teens. Newtown Pediatrics provides comprehensive care for your child’s health and well-being, encouraging them to take an active approach in their health care.

What does a well visit cover?

Well visits may include various aspects of pediatric care, including:

Preventive health

Preventive health screenings and routine physical exams help your child’s pediatrician diagnose medical conditions early when they’re the easiest to treat.

Newtown Pediatrics also provides vaccinations to protect your child from serious illnesses and recommends healthy lifestyle changes to improve their general health.

School physicals

Your child may require special physicals, like school or sports physicals, prior to the school year or sports season. Children typically need school physicals before entering kindergarten or the first grade.

Acute and chronic care

If your child develops a sudden illness (such as an earache, strep throat, or fever), or requires management for an ongoing health condition, Newtown Pediatrics can provide acute or chronic care to help with symptom management and ensure your child receives the necessary care to feel their very best.

Sports injury

Even the healthiest children may have accidents sometimes. If your child obtains an injury while playing their favorite sport, your child’s pediatrician can recommend the appropriate treatment and provide care instructions so they can heal properly and return to the activities they enjoy.

Behavioral health

Your child’s physical health is just as important as their mental and behavioral health. Newtown Pediatrics has an independently licensed clinical social worker who can discuss your child’s concerns and help them overcome difficult emotions and situations.

Acne management

Acne is a common skin condition in teens and young adults, but your child doesn’t have to struggle with acne on their own. Newtown Pediatrics can help reduce their flare-ups and offer treatment recommendations to restore the health of their skin.

When can I schedule a well visit for my child?

You can schedule a well visit anytime you have concerns about your child’s well-being or they have a health issue they’d like to discuss with a doctor. The compassionate pediatricians at Newtown Pediatrics are here to help with any questions.
