HAPPY BIRTHDAY

****Very Important****
If your child is starting kindergarten in August, schedule this visit as soon as possible after their 5th Birthday. Do NOT wait until July or August. During these months the clinic gets overwhelmed with requests for Well Visits, School Physical Forms and shot records. At this visit 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. If your child is due for any vaccines they will be administered at this time including the flu if their well visit falls between September and March. Please see our vaccine section of the website for more details. You will also have completed an online Pediatric Symptom Check List (PSC-17) which screens for possible cognitive, emotional or behavioral iisues your child may have. These forms 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.
