When your child isn’t feeling well, you reach out to your pediatrician or family practice provider. Seeing your healthcare provider every year (or more often for babies and toddlers) when they are well is also very important.
Annual wellness exams are the best time to touch on topics including nutrition, sleep, mental health, and immunization needs. Staying on track with scheduled immunizations helps your child stay protected from serious illness and disease. Our QMG Pediatrics team is here for you to answer your questions, address your concerns, and most importantly help keep your child healthy and happy.
