Recommended Checkup and Immunization Schedule

The schedule below is based on recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Kressly Pediatrics is committed to delivering high quality medical care. We believe that periodic well check-ups are an integral part of that commitment. We recommend frequent check-ups during infancy and yearly beginning at three years. We feel these visits are important to assess growth and development, and to offer advice regarding safety and emotional issues that are an important part of a healthy childhood. Please note that after age 3 years, insurance carriers will only pay for one well visit every 365 days, so please check eligibility with your carrier if there are any questions.
