Pediatrics

 

At Galatians Healthcare, we’ve created a caring, compassionate and comprehensive medical care environment to address your child’s developmental, physical and emotional needs.  We offer routine well-child check-ups, immunizations and annual physicals, with an option to schedule same-day sick visits for existing patients. 

 

 

 

 

Well-child care is the best way to keep your children healthy. As kids grow and develop, parents and caregivers should stay current with their well-child doctor visits, which consist of physical measurements, patient history, sensory screenings, behavioral assessments, immunizations, and other tests and lab work. Intervals for well-child visits are recommended during:

Baby’s first year:

  • 3-5 days after birth

  • 1 month

  • 2 months

  • 4 months

  • 6 months

  • 9 months

  • 12 months

 

Baby’s second year:

  • 15 months

  • 18 months

  • 24 months

  • 36 months (2 ½ years)

 

Well-child visits are also recommended at three and four years of age.  After the age of four, children should be seen by a doctor once a year for their annual physical exams and for developmental, behavioral and learning assessments.

 

 

 

Wake County Public Schools, private and charter schools require students to receive medical exams before entering school. Children who are not Galatians patients can make a new patient appointment. Parents/guardians of the new patient must bring vaccination records of the child(ren) at the time of visit.

 

 

 

School medical exams include complete physicals as well as all required immunizations. Students beginning or returning to school must receive medical exams if they are entering:

  • Preschool and kindergarten, up to age six.

  • School for the first time in the state of Illinois, at any grade level.

  • Kindergarten; sixth or ninth grades (or ages five, 11 and 15)
