Probably the most difficult decision you will need to make is whether your infant should be seen by a pediatrician or a family care physician. Both types of doctors are qualified to care for your child. If your child has any special needs you may want to choose a pediatrician but if you have a family doctor that you see yourself and are comfortable with that is a good option.

Infants and Children

For the first two years of your child's life, they will be growing at amazing rates. They will also be getting most of the vaccinations that will keep them safe for years to come. The regular checkups that they get can affect their health for the rest of their lives. In these two years, there will be many visits, after that for the most part, it will be once a year for well visits. 


Your regular yearly visit with your family medicine doctor in Cypress, TX is the time to check your vital signs, do a blood and urine test, and schedule a mammogram, and a pap smear for women. The best way to maintain a healthy body is to take care of it. Your doctor will be able to compare your weight and other vitals with last year. Any things that need to be changed in your lifestyle can be discussed, and it can save your life if any abnormalities are uncovered.
