Children’s health includes physical, mental, and social well-being. It’s important to closely monitor your child’s health as they develop. Regular visits to the doctor can detect or prevent your child from experiencing health problems.
Our Pediatrics Clinic serves TRICARE Prime family members who are under 18 years old (17 and younger).
We encourage you to bring all the forms you will need during the year to your child’s physical appointment. However, If your child has had a physical at Rader Clinic within the past year, a physical form can be completed from that physical exam. You may drop the form you wish to have completed at the Pediatric Clinic front desk and the staff will notify you when the form has been completed. There is up to a three day turnaround time for form completion.
Well-Child Visit and Immunization Schedule
Well child visit forms and the immunization schedule may be printed out and completed before your child's visit to save time at the appointment. For Well Child visits, fill out and bring in the Bright Future Medical Screening Questionnaire. Please bring all necessary forms with you.
