Children and Adolescents
The Health of your Children
Your child's health includes his or her physical, mental, and social well-being. Most parents are aware of the basics of keeping their children healthy, like providing nutritious foods, making sure they get enough sleep and exercise, and insuring their safety. It's also important for children and adolescents to have regular checkups with their primary doctor. These visits are a great way to check in with your child's growth and development. They are also a great time to prevent or detect any health concerns.
If your child is transitioning from pediatric to adult care, talk to your pediatrician. He or she is a great source of information and can recommend the appropriate doctor or specialist for your child. Click on the Find A Doctor tool to locate in-network providers near you.
