The Importance of Regular Checkups

It's easy to develop the habit of seeing our pediatrician in Birmingham, AL, when your child is sick. But it's beneficial to maintain regular wellness visits to ensure they're healthy year-round. A well-child visit or pediatric checkup identifies achievements and milestones, health risks, preventive measures, developmental worries you may have, and difficulties with daily habits. For example, if your child exhibits symptoms of sleep apnea (snoring, gasping for air during sleep), or ADHD, these may be signs of behavioral issues. Our team at Acton Road Pediatrics can provide you with the resources to treat the problem once they identify the underlying cause. Our pediatricians in Birmingham, AL, can monitor your child's development, growth, and weight and check that vaccinations are current.

The Importance of Regular Pediatric Checkups

The power to keep your child healthy is in the palm of your hand, and the first line of defense to do so is with a pediatric checkup. These wellness exams target a mental or physical developmental issue that you may overlook and diagnose health risks at early stages when easiest to treat. Our pediatricians adhere to the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics to guarantee that your child receives their vaccinations on time and effectively. We also educate you on hygienic practices and a nutritional diet, plus ease any worries about raising your child. When you bring your child in for a checkup, our doctor will measure their height and weight and examine their eyes, ears, mouth, head, and check the heart and lungs.

Our pediatrician in Birmingham, AL, attends to your children's medical needs in a personable, reliable, and thoughtful manner. We look forward to developing a trusting relationship with you and your child as they grow throughout their lives.
