Primary care services
At your primary care clinic, we provide a wide variety of primary care services that kids need during a typical childhood. And, if something is out of the ordinary, we can connect you to the rest of the services throughout the Children’s Minnesota system.
Well child visits
Well child visits are regular exams where your child’s primary care physician checks your child’s development. They’re also an opportunity for you and your doctor to talk about your questions or concerns. At each visit, your doctor will monitor your child’s physical, mental and emotional health. He or she will compare this to national standards for children of that age.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends regular well child visits at specific ages. Your child’s doctor may suggest a different schedule based on your child’s needs.
Primary care clinics provide immunizations. These shots protect your child from getting diseases. The AAP has set a specific schedule for childhood immunizations. The schedule may seem overwhelming, but don’t worry — your doctor will let you know which immunizations your child needs and when.
