Preventive health care is the key to a strong and healthy body, especially for children and teenagers who are still going through developmental milestones.
Whether they have underlying health issues, play sports, or are in perfectly good health, your kids need annual physicals, which provide several key health services, from measuring their vitals to screening for issues with their physical and mental health and well-being.
At Kids & Teens Medical Group, our team of pediatricians and pediatric health specialists offer well-child exams and physicals for children and teenagers at many convenient locations across the greater Los Angeles area. In fact, we’re the largest pediatric group in the LA area.
But annual physicals are comprehensive and also monitor your child’s or teen’s development through critical stages in their growth, including their cognitive, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
Annual physicals are often required for children and teens to participate in sports. We can provide the paperwork and clearance your child needs to join a team or participate in extracurricular activities.
You can schedule a well-child exam or physical for your kids at any point in the year, but right before the start of a new school year is typically a good time to ensure that they have everything they need to fully participate in academic and athletic activities.
We provide personalized care to every child and teen. A typical annual physical consists of a number of services and screenings including:
Every child is different, and the annual physical is a good opportunity for you to ask questions and address any concerns about your child’s physical, mental, or emotional health.
The childhood and the teen years are periods of rapid change and growth, and your child’s mind and body can change dramatically from one year to the next. Annual physicals monitor their progress and catch any physical or mental health issues as soon as possible.
If it’s been more than a year since your child’s or teen’s last annual physical, you don’t have to wait until the start of a new school year to schedule an appointment. Our pediatric team is available to serve your family year-round.
