Well Visit and Vaccination Schedules

Tenafly Pediatrics would like to ensure your child's health and well being. In order to do so it is important that we see our patients for regular health maintenance visits. You will notice that these visits are most frequent during the first year of life. This is because your child will change more in the first year than at any other time in his or her life. During these visits we will also administer vaccines and perform bloodwork to further ensure your child's well being as well as any answer any questions you may have.

TIPS PRIOR TO SCHEDULING A CHECK-UP

  • Check with your insurance -- for ages 3+, some allow 1 check-up per calendar year, others allow 1 check-up every 365 days.  Refer to your policy book or call to find out which protocol your insurance company uses.
  •  For check-ups between ages 18 months and 3 years, many insurance companies require 6 full months between each visit.  Contact your insurance company to see if they have this time restriction.
  • We ask that you call the office between 9:30am and 4:30pm on weekdays to schedule check-ups.  On weekends and the earlier and later parts of the weekday our staff is doing their best to schedule same-day sick appointments.
