Healthy Kids Learn Better In School

When children reach school age, your scheduled well child visits will become annual, with visits in between as needed for illnesses, discussions with the doctor regarding diet, behavior and development. You may also need to schedule a visit to receive medical forms for athletic teams and other activities, in addition to your school forms. Fit Life Pediatric Consultants is here to help

Annual Visit

During your annual well-child visit, the doctor will check your child’s vital functions, vision, hearing, height, weight, and blood pressure. She will make sure that his or her immunizations are up to date, as well as discuss diet, exercise, and sleep. She can also refer you to other health professionals such as a dentist for checkups, or a pediatric ophthalmologist if she detects any eye problems during the exam.

Mental Health

Dr. Mafut is concerned about your child’s mental and emotional well-being, and not just his or her physical health.  If you or your child have concerns about school experiences, trouble with friends, stress, or family challenges, it is perfectly appropriate to discuss these with her.
