What to expect at a

Well Care Visit

Well care check-up visits are important, even when children are healthy. These check-ups will help to keep your child healthy and ensure their meeting their developmental milestones. Dr. Feltus and Teena will evaluate your child's general health, growth and development, as well as give you time to ask questions to keep your children happy and healthy!
