MedStar Family Choice wants your child to visit their doctor every year to meet their healthcare needs. At your child’s annual visit to their doctor, they will make sure all your child’s healthcare needs and requirements are met; for example, they will make sure your child is up-to-date with all their required vaccinations. It is important to know that children two and under need to have a blood test to check for lead. It  is also important for all children and young adults to have their cholesterol levels measured along with a blood test to check for anemia (lack of healthy blood cells).
