Prevention and Wellness

Preventive Care

LYNK Pediatrics is your top choice for your child’s long-term wellness and ongoing medical care. We work with patients from newborn to 18. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that your child get checkups 1-2 days after discharge to check for weight loss, jaundice and feeding issues.  Well visit check ups will then occur at 2 weeks, and then at 2,4,6,9,12,15,18 and 24 months old. After that, healthy children generally only come once a year.

Preventive Care is essential

Some of the things that happen at prevention and wellness appointments:
  • Thorough physical examinations and testing of ears, eyes, mouth,
    heart, lungs, legs, alertness, skin, reflexes, and more
  • Measurements of height and weight to compare to other children
  • Developmental review of age-specific behaviors
  • Behavioral and psychological assessments through observations and
    discussion
  • Hearing and sight checks
  • Immunizations
  • Routine screenings
  • Discussion of any of your concerns
  • Lots of care and attention!

As children age, being monitored by LYNK Pediatrics helps ensure they hit all their developmental and growth milestones. These prevention and wellness appointments are essential to your child’s health. They let us spot any problems at their onset for treatment.
