​Well-Child Visits at the Department of Family Medicine

A well-child visit is for a healthy child who sees the doctor for a checkup. It's a chance for the doctor to talk to you and your child about what to expect as they continue to grow.

These visits are also a good time for you to ask the doctor and care team any questions about your child's health.

At the UPMC Department of Family Medicine, our doctors see children of all ages for well visits every day.

What to Expect During a Well Child Visit

As your child grows, the doctor is always comparing where they are to what is expected of a child their age.

The developmental milestones record lists the things you should see in terms of the development and growth of your child.

We can also fill out and sign school and sports physical forms based on your child's recent visit.
