Summary: A well visit or sports physical can be very important for your child's overall health.Taking your child to the doctor for an ear infection or a fever is one time you see your pediatrician.

This is your chance to raise questions and concerns about your child's development, behavior, and general well-being — questions that are difficult to discuss during sick visits. It is also an opportunity to see how your child has grown, ask the doctor about sensitive subjects and really prepare your child for the the best care possible. Dr. David A. Levine shares important information you should be considering for these types of doctor visits. Don't be a parent that misses out on this essential appointment!
