Growing up healthy and strong

There’s no greater peace of mind than knowing that your child is thriving and healthy. Allegro Pediatrics offers routine visits, called Well Child Check-ups, from the first month of your child’s life through their teens. These check-ups are the best way to monitor your child’s health and build a strong connection with your pediatrician. The visits typically include a physical exam, as well as growth monitoring, developmental screening, immunizations, and expert guidance. Well Child Check-ups are also a great time to complete School, Sports & Camp Physicals as well as learn about recommendations when Traveling with Your Child.

Well Child Check-ups at Allegro Pediatrics follow a generally accepted schedule, but your doctor may recommend a slightly different schedule if needed for your child.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) offers a free Ages & Stages texting program for parents with children up to the age of five. You'll receive messages about injury prevention, nutrition and feeding advice, what to expect at Well Child Check-ups, upcoming vaccine reminders, and developmental milestones to watch for. Visit the Healthy Children website to sign up.

Tips for a Great Visit

Some doctors' schedules fill up quickly, so please plan ahead and contact us early for an appointment. If your child’s primary doctor is not available, we can schedule you with one of our other skilled and compassionate doctors.

While insurance has traditionally covered routine well child check-ups, we’ve seen some recent changes in this coverage. Please contact your insurer, or your employer’s benefits office, to check your coverage.

In order to be prepared for a thorough check-up, we ask that patients wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes.

We appreciate your prompt arrival for your child's appointment. Please let us know if you are going to be late. We may need to reschedule based on the doctor's availability.

We met with Dr. Wu at the Totem Lake clinic when we were expecting our first child, and knew she’d be a great fit for us. She’s been so wonderful as our family has grown, caring for both of our girls through all the ups and downs.  -Megan

Dr. Graham is amazing! My boys actually get excited to go to the pediatrician. -Sarah

We have a one-year-old boy and could not be more pleased with the doctors, nurses and admin staff. Everyone is eager to help, understanding to first-time parents and so amazing to the kiddos they treat. Also...who can beat an office that can get you in 365 days a year? -Makenna

I spent 8 months researching every pediatric facility in Washington to find the best doctor for my first born. This place had the highest rated doctors and best reviews. 19 years later, we still come here to see our pediatrician, Uncle Donald. Yes, we adopted our pediatrician into the family…wonderful place and people.  -Jen
