What is a well child physical?

Well child physicals and check up exams are designed to check the progress of children toward many benchmarks in their physical, emotional, and mental development. There are two experts at the well child visits, the parent and the doctor. The doctor is an expert in the developmental milestones of healthy children and the parent is an expert about their child and their family and their habits.
