Why Annual Pediatric Screenings & Checkups Are Necessary

Garnet Health’s experienced family medicine teams help your child transition into adolescence and adulthood. We partner with parents, providing education and resources to nurture your child’s well-being. Pediatric screenings and annual checkups are necessary health visits that foster comfortable patient-doctor relationships. These visits help encourage children to ask questions about their bodies, set healthy goals and prioritize healthy habits.

How Often Should You Schedule Pediatric Screenings?

Regardless of age or health, all children (infants to adolescents) should have an annual checkup and pediatric screening. In cases of sudden illnesses, chronic conditions or developmental concerns, scheduling more frequent visits is encouraged.
