What is a well-child visit?
Your child's body is growing and changing every day. Staying on top of your child's health and development is part of our mission to keep kids healthy. This is why we offer child well-visits at Health Services of North Texas at the Wylie Children's Medical Clinic in Wylie, TX. Seeing a doctor just once a year during periods of rapid growth may seem ideal, but realistically, having your child in for a well-visit is great for preventing health conditions.
Setting your child up for a healthy relationship with his or her body in childhood is a wonderful gift you can give your child. You can do this with well-visits at least once a year to prepare him or her for getting their annual physical. Having access to healthcare even when you are not sick is a great opportunity to acknowledge your child's health. HSNT wants to be your child's medical home. We like to celebrate good health, as well as helping when illnesses arise. To learn more about well-visits, please call and schedule an appointment. HSNT has in-person visits and telehealth appointments available as well.

During a well-visit at HSNT
When you bring your child into Wylie Children's Medical Clinic, you can expect a family and kid-friendly atmosphere. We will document your child's weight, height, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature at the beginning of the appointment. Your child may need to give a urine sample and a blood draw. Our pediatric practitioners and physicians will perform the well-child exam. You may be asked about your child's medical history, immunization record, and more. You may also need to have a discussion about your child's sleeping patterns, nutrition, level of physical activity, emotional issues, or any concerning matter that you may have at that time.
When You need Follow-up appointments
Sometimes, we see children that do need follow-up appointments or a referral to see a specialist after a well-visit. We do offer in-house testing at Wylie Children's Medical Clinic. However, if we receive an abnormal result, our practitioner may suggest a follow-up with a pediatrician or a specialist when needed.
Stay Healthy with well-visits
A pediatric well-visit is a preventive care appointment you can make for your child. With an experienced and highly qualified medical team at Health Services of North Texas, your child can have medical care, from infancy and into the teen years. Contact our pediatrics team at the Wylie Children's Medical Clinic in Wylie, TX for more information. Remember, we are here for you and your family, even in times of good health.
