Annual wellness checks can help track your child’s development and prevent future health issues. At Myrtle Avenue Pediatrics patients in the Clearwater and Oldsmar areas of Florida can receive annual wellness checks to maintain their overall health and wellness.
Annual wellness checks are designed to track your child’s development and identify potential problems early on. During the wellness check, a conversation about your child's health and a review of his/her personal and family medical history will be discussed. A comprehensive physical examination will be done to assess overall health while at the same time checking for any irregularities.
Because children are in their developmental years, their specific screenings will differ from those of adults. These screenings include:
Additional tests your child may need can include:
In the United States, about 13% of children 3 to 17 years of age have a developmental or behavioral disability such as autism. An annual wellness check helps to identify such problems early on. Research shows that early intervention and treatment can greatly improve a child’s development.

I feel so relieved and blessed that we met Dr. Greg. You Floridians are lucky to have such a genuine and kind pediatrician! I couldn't recommend him or his staff more.
Dr. Savel is a competent and caring pediatrician. I'm in my 30's and I was a patient at Myrtle Avenue Pediatrics when I was a child. My children now are patients there.
