What to Expect at Your Well Visits

Well child visits are important, even when children are healthy. These check-ups will help to keep your child healthy. Dr. Feltus and Teena will evaluate your child's general health, growth and development, as well as give you time to ask questions. The shot schedule below is just an example. Your actual shot schedule may be different due to the varied availability of combination vaccines.
