Your Well Checkup


A team approach

We work closely with you and your family to ensure you are staying healthy from year to year. Based on your age, well checkups may include the following:

  • Immunizations (Shots)
  • Physical Exam
  • Height/Weight/Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Lead Screenings
  • Vision and Hearing
  • Dental Screenings
  • Developmental/Behavioral Screenings
  • Well Woman Services
    (Breast Cancer, Cervical Cancer and STD/STI Screenings)
  • Health Education
  • Medications Review


Checkups can make sure you are in good health. They can also make sure your child is growing and developing well. Seeing your provider for a checkup can also help find health problems early. Health problems that are found early can be treated to keep the problem from getting worse. Prepare for your well checkup.

What happens

Based on your age and gender, your provider will do different screenings and tests. He or she may also perform other screenings and tests if you are feeling symptoms. To learn more about what screenings and tests you or your child should be getting, see our Checkup Schedules.


It is important to work with your provider to make sure all of your health care needs are met. You may want to talk to your provider about:

  • Physical health
  • Safety in your home
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Mental health (i.e. stress, depression)
  • Physical activity
  • Sleep habits
  • Drug, alcohol or tobacco use
