Is Your Child Sick?TM

Well Visits

To keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them in for regular checkups.

Most well visits take place in our "Germ Free Zone."  This room is designed with parents and small children in mind.  Children have space to play while their parents have a comfortable area to sit and consult with Dr. Allen about various health concerns. Every well visit is scheduled for at least 30 minutes.  For this reason, we are only able to schedule two siblings at at time for back to back well visits.  (More than two siblings can be scheduled back to back on one of our Well Check Wednesday evenings.)  Please keep in mind that our nurses will also ask if your child has had a fever, runny nose, cough, or other contagious symptoms when they arrive for their well visit in order to keep our "Germ Free Zone" truly germ free.  If your child is ill on the day of their well visit, you may be asked to reschedule or you may be seen in one of our regular exam rooms.  

We recommend that you contact our office 2 week(s) in advance so you may choose the date that best fits your needs.  Please submit well child appointment requests through our patient portal.


Prior to most well visits, you will receive a developmental questionnaire about your child.  If you are unable to complete the developmental questionnaire at home, please arrive 10-15 minutes early to your appointment so that you can complete the survey on-line in our office. 

Well Check Wednesdays:

For your convenience, we offer evening appointments for well child visits and sports physicals the first Wednesday evening of every month from 4:30-7:00 pm.
