What to Expect at Your Child's Physical

At the Pediatric Associates at Clearwater Pediatric Care and Westchase Pediatric Care, our pediatricians provide treatment for residents throughout Clearwater and Westchase, FL. The purpose of a pediatrician is to specialize in the diagnosing and treatment of infants to adulthood. While there are some providers who work with people of all ages, a pediatrician only works with those not fully into adulthood. When you work with a pediatrician to get your child medical care, you will know that they have a care provider who is ready to manage your child's health as they grow.

What to Expect at Your Child's First Physical

When you see a pediatrician for the first time, you will be asked a wide range of questions about their health and wellness. Depending on the age of your child, you will be asked about behaviors, sleep patterns, eating habits, and any concerns that you might have. Your child will have a complete medical evaluation, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions along the way. If your child is not comfortable with any part of the exam, the pediatrician will work closely with you to help your child feel safe. Your child will be measured and weighed as part of the physical.

Working With Your Child's Pediatrician

A pediatrician understands that you may have all kinds of questions, especially if you are a first-time parent of a newborn. You will have the chance to talk about how to take care of your child, any issues to watch for, and how your baby is doing at this time. If you have concerns, you can call the office and relay the concerns you have. When you are able to provide effective communication with your child's pediatrician, it is easier for your child to receive the care they need to live a healthy, active life.
