Newborn And Pediatric Care
From the minute your child is born, you can rest assured she will receive quality medical care at Novant Health Kannapolis Family Medicine. We offer comprehensive care to children of every age, including newborn and pediatric well-patient checkups. These regular appointments are excellent opportunities for you and your child to establish a relationship with your child's provider, and for your provider to get to know your child while monitoring health and development issues.
We also offer all childhood immunizations as well as annual flu shots. These are safe, proven tools for fighting disease and helping to keep your child healthy. We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics vaccination schedule. Please click here to view the schedule.
Same-Day And Walk-In Sick Appointments
When your child is sick, you will be able to see a provider at Novant Health Kannapolis Family Medicine quickly. We offer same-day and walk-in appointments for sick patients. To schedule, please call our office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. (Phones are closed from 12 until 1 p.m. for lunch.) If you choose to be seen as a walk-in patient, please understand your wait time will depend on our providers' schedules.
School, Camp And Sports Physicals
Children are often required to have physical examinations before beginning school, camp or a sport. These visits ensure that your child is well enough to participate in the activity without endangering himself or someone else. Sometimes these visits can be combined with regular well-patient checkups, while others need to be completed at a different time.
Our office regularly completes required school, camp and sports exams, and fills out needed forms. If your child needs one of these exams to participate in an activity, please bring any form you have been given to your child's appointment as we might not have access to that form in our office. Please also note this exam might not be covered by your insurance. Please call your insurer in advance if you have questions about any copayment or payment you might owe.
