Well Child Visits

At Watchung Pediatrics, we believe that raising a child is an incredibly rewarding and challenging experience for parents. Our goal is to provide guidance and support to parents to help children reach their full potential.
Well child visits are the cornerstone of happy and healthy children and enable us to give anticipatory guidance, perform important screenings and comprehensive physical exams as well as provide valuable information to parents and children in a timely fashion.
 
To help keep your children healthy, it is important to bring them into one of our 3 offices for regular check ups and immunizations, according to our Well Child schedule which is promoted by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
