A Checklist for Parents: Preparing for Your Child’s Check-Up


Pediatricians play a crucial role in your child’s health and overall well-being. At Grace Pediatrics & Family Clinic, Inc.,we provide well baby visits/child check-ups for newborn babies up to 18-year-olds. When your children are toddlers, you may be required to visit their pediatrician every few months, however, as they grow older, you may only see their pediatrician once every year.

Typically, well visits/child check-ups only last for less than an hour. Within this limited time period, you have to make the most of your time with your child’s Pediatrician. In order to ensure that you maximize your visit, here are some tips that you should keep in mind:

  • Prepare your questions. In the days or weeks leading up to your appointment, make sure to list down any and all questions or concerns that you want to ask your child’s Pediatrician. By listing them down ahead of time, you can ensure that you aren’t missing any important details that you want to ask.
  • Schedule the appointment at a convenient time and date. In order to avoid feeling overwhelmed or rushed, make sure to schedule your child’s pediatric appointment at a convenient time and date. As much as possible, make sure that you don’t have any other appointments before or after your child’s check-up. This will prevent you from being late to your appointment or immediately rushing out after the check-up
  • Bring toys, books, or other materials to keep your child busy. Sometimes, doctors run late. In order to keep your child entertained as you wait, make sure to bring some toys, books, or some other items that can keep him or her entertained. Bring something for yourself, too!
  • Bring all documents that need to be updated and signed. Make sure to bring your child’s Health Record Book and some other documents that need to be updated and signed. It is important for your kid’s record to be updated accurately and in a timely manner.

Keep these tips in mind and make the most out of your well-baby visit/child check-up. As a premier provider of Pediatric Care in Houston, Texas, we want to provide the highest quality of services for you and your child. If you have any concerns or queries, please don’t hesitate to call us at 713-988-6835 for assistance.
