As family health experts, Lakewood Family Medicine physicians specialize in a full range of medicine for individuals of every age and stage of life.
Book your appointment and your child’s visits at the same time with one of our compassionate physicians. Regular check ups and sick visits are available for children from birth through to adulthood. Lakewood Family Medicine reserves a number of same day visits each day and can accommodate sick visits as available.
We recommend periodic check ups for children:
- Infant exams at ages 5-7 days; 2 weeks; 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 and 30 months
- Children ages 3 through 12—yearly
- Adolescents ages 13 through 18—every 2 years
Each child develops at their individual pace. By learning the typical development milestones, you and your doctor can take appropriate action to ensure they have the care they need. Click your child’s age below to view the developmental milestones for their age.
