Celebration Pediatrics understands how important your child’s health is. It is important to keep up to date on your child’s well visit schedule. Regular well-child examinations are essential to keeping kids healthy and up-to-date on immunizations against many dangerous childhood diseases.

A wellness visit can also include a physical or sports physical appointment.

A checkup is an opportunity for us to talk to you about developmental and safety issues and for you ask questions you might have about your child’s overall health.
