4 Year Old

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

***Very Important***
Make sure you schedule this visit on or after your child's 4th birthday so they will be able to receive their vaccines. Vaccines given even 1 day prior to the child's 4th birthday will NOT be accepted by the State of Florida database which means your child will NOT be able to enter school unless the vaccines are administered AGAIN. There are usually 4 vaccines given at this visit as well as the flu vaccine if your child's well visit falls between September and March. If your child will be starting VPK in August, try your best to get their 4 Year Old Well Child Visit scheduled as soon as possible after their 4th birthday. Every year parents let months go by and suddenly it is July or August when they realize without the School Physical Form and an Up to Date Shot Record printed on Paper with the Florida State Seal their child will not be permitted to enter school. Clinics are then overwhelmed with requests for 4 year old visits, physical exams and shot records. We try to accommodate as many patients as possible but there are only so many hours in the day. Your child will be weighed and their height will be measured. We will also calculate and plot your child's BMI. (Body Mass Index) Your child will have their blood pressure, vision and hearing checked. We will discuss growth, development, nutrition, and safety. We will perform a complete physical exam as well as answer any questions you have. You will also have completed an online Ages and Stages and Health Risk questionnaire prior to your visit which will help us identify any problem areas your child may have with their development. These questionnaires are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. These forms are available in English and Spanish. This form may be completed on a computer, IPAD/tablet or a smart phone by accessing our website goodpediatrics.com and clicking on the link to CHADIS. The forms are accessed electronically by Dr. Good. The forms are scored and a report is generated for her review prior to your arrival. If you do not have access to this technology or have trouble, we will have computers in the waiting room that you may use for this purpose as well as staff to help you. Please come 30 minutes early in this case to be assured you have time to complete the forms accurately and the doctor has the information for review before she sees your child.
