Northwest Arkansas Pediatric Clinic opened the only free-standing pediatric wellness clinic in the state of Arkansas in March of 2009. Our Wellness Clinic is a completely separate building designed to prevent your healthy child from becoming unnecessarily exposed to contagious diseases.
Preventative health care is the most effective care we provide. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics’ well-child exam schedule and vaccine schedule.
Parents know that a well-child visit is a time for scheduled vaccinations and a time to see how much your child has grown in the past months.
However, a well-child appointment is also the time to raise questions and concerns about your child’s development, behavior, and general well-being. Pediatricians are used to discussing common concerns with parents such as eating, sleeping, toilet training, social behaviors, as well as attention and learning problems.
Having regular well-child visits with your child’s doctor and raising the concerns that matter most to you are key in helping the doctor know you and your child, and in forming a reliable and trustworthy relationship.
