Preventive and Acute Care for Your Children's Health
At Family Practice Center, PC, our providers offer complete medical care for newborns, toddlers, school-age children, adolescents and young adults– including wellness visits, acute care, vaccinations, nutrition, behavioral health and more.
We can address parenting concerns and developmental issues, and we can provide education and anticipatory guidance. School physicals and sports physicals are offered as well.
Well-child visits are recommended at specific ages throughout your child’s life to monitor their overall health and development.
We encourage all parents to bring their children in for a health checkup at least once a year. Well visits are scheduled frequently during their first two years to ensure your baby's proper growth and development.
Well-child visits are considered preventive care and are typically covered 100 percent by insurance.
What will a Well-Child Visit Include?
During a well-child visit, we will perform a physical examination and address any questions you have about your child's overall well-being including childhood immunizations, behavior concerns, sleep issues, healthy eating habits, hygiene, and more. We will also provide anticipatory guidance based on your child's age.

Adolescence is one of the most dynamic stages of human development. While generally characterized by good health, adolescence is also a time of dramatic physical, social, and emotional change. Because of the rapid development occurring during this phase of a child’s life, many physical and mental health conditions, substance abuse disorders, and health risk behaviors emerge during adolescence. Yet well-care visit rates decline as children age into adolescence.
Regular preventive care visits for adolescents provide opportunities for early identification as well as appropriate management and intervention for conditions and behaviors which, if not addressed, can become serious and persist into adulthood (per the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services).
Common Health Issues in Adolescents Include:
- Poor eating habits
- Lack of exercise
- Use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco
- Sexuality issues
Annual wellness visits are recommended for adolescents and young adults ages 11 to 21.
