Keeping Our Children Healthy: Annual Well Visits And Sports Physicals

Why should you bring your child in for a physical?

You may wonder why it is important to bring your child in for a back-to-school physical if he or she has been perfectly healthy. At Westchester Health Pediatrics, a division of Westchester Health, we feel that this annual visit is often the only time your child will see their doctor all year, especially if he/she is healthy and active. As well as being an important health assessment, it’s an excellent opportunity for you and your child to ask us questions and/or share with us any concerns about your child’s growth and development, diet, nutrition, behavior issues, puberty, changes in the family and anything else that’s on your mind.

How Much Weight Should You Gain When You’re Pregnant?

Most people think that when you’re expecting, you need to “eat for two” but at Westchester Health, we want to communicate to parents-to-be that you really don’t.
