CIFC Health Pediatric department provides all children with comprehensive and compassionate health care to keep them healthy and growing! It's imperative that your children receive annual physicals and regularly scheduled check-ups to detect and correct any problems as soon as possible. Although the CIFC Health pediatric encourages eligible patients to take advantage of the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), the visits to the WIC center focus on nutrition and should not be viewed as a replacement for visiting the pediatrician, who will focus on a much broader range of health concerns.

In addition to monitoring for adverse health conditions, younger children also receive vaccines at these regular visits. These inoculations are specifically timed to minimize the risks to your child and maximize the effectiveness of the vaccines. Your CIFC Health pediatrician will make a schedule with you that ensures your child is getting all of the treatments they need.

Well Child Visit Schedules

The first year of any child's life is an essential time for monitoring development and ensuring your child is healthy. After leaving the hospital with your newborn, it is recommended that you see a pediatrician within 3-5 days and again after 14 days to evaluate the baby's growth and development. After that, it is recommended that you see the pediatrician when your child's age is:

  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months 
  • 24 months
  • 30 months
  • 3 years
  • 4 years
  • Yearly after 5

Doctor's may have you visit more often if they are addressing concerns or illnesses. This schedule should not preclude you from bringing your child to the doctor when they are sick.
