Your child should have frequent wellness visits in their first two years of life. From age 3, your child should only need annual wellness checks. If they develop an illness, you can certainly bring them to Humble Family Practice for diagnosis and compassionate treatment.
Routine wellness exams are important for children to see that they’re developing at the right pace, ensure they have the vaccinations they need and treat any common childhood illnesses like ear infections or tonsillitis.
Your routine wellness exam includes a conversation about your medical history and the current state of health. If you have any symptoms or changes in your well-being, you should share them with your doctor.
Your doctor or nurse practitioner also performs a physical exam, checking your blood pressure, weight, respiration, and heartbeat. They palpate your abdomen to feel for any abnormalities in your liver and digestive organs. If you need a pelvic exam, breast exam, or Pap smear, your provider can also perform these checks.
Your provider may provide referrals for additional screenings, depending on your age and family medical history. For example, you may need a complete blood panel, mammogram, colonoscopy, or prostate screening.
