Routine Screening Tools during Well Exams

The physicians of Raleigh Pediatrics perform comprehensive well exams on their patients following the Bright Futures (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommendations.  These recommendations include timing of the exams along with appropriate testing, screening and lab work.  It is possible that some portion of the exam may not be covered or may be applied to a deductible by your insurance company and then would be your responsibility.  While we are sensitive to costs, we believe all of these screenings are necessary to provide the best care for your children.

Examples of routine screening tools used at well visits include

General Screenings:

Vision

Hearing

TB screen

Lead Screen

Developmental screening tools:

M-Chat            Autism screening tool (routinely done at 18 months and 2 years)

PEDS              Parent evaluation of development status (at intervals between 6 months – 5 years)

Behavioral and Psychosocial screening tools:

EPDS              Edinburgh Postpartum Depression Screening (routinely done between 1-6 months old)

RAAPS            Rapid Adolescent Assessment for Preventative Services done annually 11 years through 22 years
