The 15 Year Visit involves a comprehensive exam, a review of your child’s development and growth, and a review of your child’s diet, voiding habits, and sleeping routines. Depression screening will continue and you may obtain a sports physical at this visit. There will be a 5 minute private talk with your provider offered to your child to maintain adequate care as they develop their private lives. If your child is now a young woman, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) also recommends yearly urine testing for females to screen for two asymptomatic illnesses that can place their future fertility at risk.

You may start getting comfortable with your child directing the visit and may think to wait in the clinic waiting room, but your child and your child’s provider still needs your help. Please start the visit with your child and when the time comes your provider will ask you to step out for the private portion of the visit.

Call 785-842-4477 to schedule.
