What Happens During A Paediatrician Visit?

Dr Heng: During a routine check, the baby’s growth and milestones will be monitored, and your paediatrician will perform a complete physical examination as well as advice on vaccinations.
Dr Mas: For parents, this routine paediatrician visit is also a chance for you to ask questions or other concerns that you may have for problems like skin care, bowel habits, mental health, sleep, toilet training, this is just to name a few.
