Why You Should Schedule Your Child’s Well Exam

Image may contain: textSeeing your child for their well exam every year is extremely important to monitor their growth and development. Younger children should maintain their appointments because it is essential to continue their immunizations. Older children must also be seen to monitor their growth, but in these challenging times, to also check on their mental health and well-being.

Here, at Carmel Pediatrics, we are doing everything we can to keep a safe and healthy office. When you arrive for your appointment, we are asking you to contact our office from your vehicle so we can verify insurance. We will then let you know when your exam room is ready. We are currently not using our lobby, so you will not experience any contact until you reach your exam room. We are also deep cleaning the exam rooms after every patient. Once you enter through Entrance 3, hospital personnel will be manning a screening station, and they are not allowing anyone into the building who have a cough and/or fever.

We are only seeing sick children via telehealth, so only well children will be in our office. We firmly believe that our office is safer than many other public spaces. Well exams are a vital part of a child’s development, so please call or text us to schedule your visit.
