Pediatric Care and Well-Child Exams
Children of all ages have a variety of needs—mostly centered on food, clothing, shelter and love. However, one of the most important needs to fill is providing proper pediatric care in the form of well-child exams and routine immunizations. Dr. Constant-Peter, of Family & Women's Health of Avalon Park can provide routine pediatric care, or well-child exams, for children from birth living in the East Orlando area. The cornerstone of this Orlando-based family medicine practice is to promote the philosophy of providing preventive medicine to stay healthy, as well as promise prompt service when a child is sick—to get them better faster. And, most of us know that healthy habits are easiest to adopt, and maintain, during the formative years.  

The primary care physician at Family & Women's Health of Avalon Park, located in East Orlando, follows the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, along with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention when it comes to pediatric care for children from birth through all stages of childhood. 

Depending on the child’s age, lifestyle, personal beliefs and past medical history, the following might be performed and addressed during a routine well-child exam:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Work
  • Exercise Plan
  • Eye Exam
  • Flu Vaccine
  • Healthy Diet Recommendations
  • Heart Rate
  • Height
  • Immunizations  (CDC recommended)
  • Lab Work (check blood and urine for disorders or diseases)
  • Monitoring of developmental milestones
  • Monitoring of growth
  • STREP Test
  • Urinalysis
  • Weight
