Q.

Yearly Check-ups - 5 yr old Son

My son is almost 5. I have taken him for yearly check-ups to the pead for the last 4 years. All was fine and there have never been any problems. Do I have to take him every year still? If so what sort of things will he be checked for and what should I follw up on with the pead?
Thanks for the advise

If your son is well and you have no concerns about his health, there is no need to take him for a check-up now.
