Well Visit – 10-14 years

Well Visit Preparation

Please take a few minutes to complete and consider the following, which will help you optimize your time in our office.

  • How is your child eating? Is your child eating the rainbow of veggies and fruit each week – at least 5 servings daily? What protein sources do you offer your child (meat, dairy, plant based)?
  • How is your child progressing in school? Any academic issues? Any social issues?  Any difficulty making or keeping friends?  Any bullying issues?

  • How is your child sleeping?  Any snoring? Any pauses in breathing at night?  Waking refreshed?

  • Is your child having regular bowel movements?  Does your child experience any discomfort with urnation or have any change in urinary pattern?

  • What signs of puberty is your child exhibiting? Do you or your child have questions about puberty?

Vaccines Typically Administered and Procedures

We do a urine screen every year at this age.  This test is in part a screen for type 1 diabetes, as well as other issues.  Encourage your child to drink well the days prior to the visit to reduce “false positives” and the need to repeat the urine.

We do a hemoglobin via finger prick every 2 years whenever possible.  This helps us screen for anemia, including iron deficiency anemia.


At age 11, we begin discussing the following vaccines:

  • Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, acellular Pertussis). This vaccine is required by 7th grade.
  • Meningococcal Vaccine
  • Human Papillomavirus Vaccine
