Routine Check-Ups and Well-Baby Visits
Many parents are aware that keeping up with a consistent schedule of pediatric visits is important in a child’s growing years. The visits are frequent in the first year of life, but eventually become just annual check-ups as your child gets older. These visits are to monitor your child’s growth and development, so they will typically start with a height and weight measurement. Dr. Shadab, a seasoned pediatrician in Orange County, will then perform an examination that checks your child’s skin, mouth, ears, eyes, heart, and lungs. The doctor will also use a combination of observation and questions directed toward the parents in order to determine milestones of your child’s motor skills and emotional, mental, and social development. These routine visits are also a chance for you to ask the doctor about any questions or concerns that you may have about your child. If he or she is due for any vaccinations, they may be administered during the visit.
These routine visits are an important part of our focus on preventative care and allow Dr. Shadab to catch any potential issues early.
