We will weigh your baby and measure their length and head circumference. We will discuss growth, development, nutrition and safety, perform a complete physical exam and answer any questions you have. You will also have completed an online Ages and Stages, Parent Emotions, and Health Risk questionnaire prior to your visit which will help us identify any problem areas your baby may have with their development, emotions parents may be experiencing due to the stress of a baby, and any exposures your baby may be at risk for. These questionnaires are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. These forms are available in English and Spanish. We have tried to make this as easy as possible for you. The answers are multiple choice. These forms may be completed on a computer, IPAD/tablet or a smart phone by accessing our website and clicking on the link to CHADIS. The forms are accessed electronically by Dr. Good. They are scored and a report is generated for her review prior to your arrival. If you do not have access to this technology or have trouble, we have computers in the waiting room that you may use for this purpose as well as staff to help you. Please come 30 minutes early in this case to be assured you have time to complete the forms accurately and the doctor has the information for review before she sees your baby. In addition, your baby will receive their 3rd set of childhood vaccines. If your well visit falls between September and March, the flu vaccine will be recommended as per the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the AAP (American Association of Pediatrics) guidelines. Please see our vaccine section of the website for more details.

Also, beginning at the 6 month visit, an Oral Health Risk Assessment will be performed. If your child has a tooth or two and meets the criteria, fluoride varnish will be offered as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists to help prevent cavities.
