Well Child Visit Schedule in Blacksburg, VA

Routine wellness visits with your pediatrician are essential to understanding your child’s health, growth and development

As a parent or caretaker, you want what’s best for your child. Regular wellness visits with your pediatrician are essential to understanding your child’s health and assessing their growth and development. Regular well-child visits allow you to build a relationship with a trusted pediatrician and discuss concerns about your child’s sleeping patterns, educational and social development, growth and nutrition, and overall health. At New Beginnings Pediatrics, we are pleased to provide expert well child care to children across Blacksburg and surrounding areas.

What to Expect

At New Beginning Pediatrics, we want to ensure that your child is developing at a healthy pace and hitting key growth milestones. At each well visit with us, we will record key metrics to track your child’s growth. In addition to height and weight, we also may perform the following exams to measure your child’s health:

  • Vision screening
  • Hearing screening
  • Laboratory screening
  • Physical exam
  • Measuring blood pressure

These health screenings are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and provide a baseline level of information on the overall health of your child.

Immunizations

In addition to routine health screenings, we will also ensure that your child is up to date on immunizations that will help prevent serious childhood diseases. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that our patients follow pediatrician-provided immunization schedules to keep your child as healthy as possible. Most vaccines can completely prevent serious and life-threatening infections and diseases, and allow children to enjoy school, sports, camp and vacation safely.

Child Safety Tips

At New Beginning Pediatrics, we will discuss safety measures that are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) during your well-child care visits. We have a few tips for keeping your little ones safe at home and school including:

  • Sunscreen use
  • Teaching your child how to swim
  • Abiding by car seat and booster seat recommendations
  • Properly fitted helmets for biking
  • Childproofing your home
