Physicals Offered at Delaware Pediatrics



During a physical, your child’s pediatrician will have an opportunity to examine year-over-year changes and progress. The pediatrician will check your child’s vitals, joints, flexibility, and vision. The younger years are more heavily focused on developmental progress and vaccinations, while adolescent years tend to be more focused on psychological and physical changes. This exam for teens gives them a chance to ask any questions relating to adolescent issues such as drinking, smoking, drugs, sexual activity, and depression.
