This is a routine office visit with a new healthcare provider for females 12 to 17 years of age.
This visit includes a review of your child's medical history, a physical exam and age-appropriate tests and immunizations.
The healthcare provider will ask questions about your child's lifestyle and may order blood, urine or other tests if the child has risk factors for any diseases.
Lifestyle questions include asking about your safety habits (helmet and seatbelt use); alcohol, tobacco and drug use; diet, weight and exercise; school and social activities; and sexual activity. Based on your answers, counseling about reducing health risks may also be provided.
During a routine well child visit, your child's weight, height and blood pressure will be checked.
The healthcare provider will also review your child's immunization record and recommend updates, such as a flu shot or meningococcal vaccine.
Although most insurance plans cover wellness visits without a copay, you may incur additional charges if your healthcare provider needs to assess any problems or abnormal findings or advises additional testing or immunizations.
It is helpful if you are prepared for your child's appointment with their healthcare provider.
Before your child's examination, make a list of questions, symptoms or concerns you want to discuss. Bring a list of your child's medications to the appointment (including over-the-counter).
During the appointment, ask about your child's overall health, specific concerns you have and what screenings and immunizations are recommended for your child's age group.
After your appointment, you should know what immunizations your child received, the reason for each of them and if there are any side effects. If tests were ordered, ask if the test results will change your child's treatment plan. If not, why are they necessary? You should know the follow-up plans, if any, and if there are symptoms you should report sooner than your next appointment.
