Tips on Keeping Your Child Healthy

We want to help you keep your child healthy and strong!  Below are some great tips for keeping your child fit: 

  • Take your child to the doctor for regular checkups.  Your doctor knows your child best.  The doctor’s office is the best place for your child to receive regular checkups.
  • Keep your appointments.  Call the doctor to cancel if you can’t keep an appointment.
  • Call and schedule rides to your appointments when a ride is needed.
  • Take snacks and books with you to the doctor.  You and your child may have to wait for the appointment.
  • Keep a record of your child’s shots.  You can ask the doctor to give you a copy of the record.
  • Make a list of questions for the doctor before your visit.  Remember to ask the doctor the questions.


What to expect when you visit your child’s doctor?

Doctors and nurses will ask your child and you questions about your child’s medical history.  The doctor will check your child to make sure everything is okay and that they are growing properly.  Your child will get shots and the doctor will make sure your child can hear and see properly.

Remember your list of questions that you prepared the day before the checkup?  Ask the doctor all of the questions before your child’s visit is over.  Your doctor will also ask you about taking your child to the dentist for regular checkups.

Doctors and nurses will help you find other services your child needs. Their office staff can even help you to schedule rides and appointments.
