The Importance of Childhood Checkups

Prevention, Growth and Development

Well-child visits give you the big picture of your child's health. 


First, every child has their own unique growth curve.  Dr. Hayford will help determine if your child is reaching developmental milestones when they should.  

As a parent, you might find your child is having a hard time with motor skills, schoolwork, speech or other areas of development.  If that happens, Dr. Hayford can provide resources to tackle those challenges early.  

Dr. Hayford can also provide information when you need extra support in a number of other areas.

If your child has missed their regular well-child visit (health checkup), now is a good time to catch-up!

Regular well-child visits are a key way for you and your child's doctor to keep up with your child's development and to make sure they are reaching appropriate milestones.




Please check back often for

changes and additions.
