Yup, I still take all 3 of my kids to the doctor at least once a year for their check-ups.
Yes, we do, and you absolutely should! (Actually, even adults should get checked out yearly, although I'm not that great about this myself.)
I get the whole modesty thing. My daughter insisted that she have a female doctor when she was about 12, so we switched. It actually worked out well because our other doc, a man, was leaving the practice so it was a natural time to choose someone else.
If your DD is giving you a hard time, ask her what she doesn't like. Some pediatricians are not that great with teens, so you should listen to her and switch if this is the case. Kids this age hate to be treated as children, so if your practice doesn't have the policy of seeing the teen first with the parent and then alone, you should also consider switching. Our doctor is great about kicking the parent out when it's time to talk openly with the teen about drugs, sex, etc. Both of my kids (13 and 15) totally trust their doctor.
ITA w/ what ashsmama said.
Yes, my kids go in for a check up every year.
We don't, but we go in every year for her annual sports physical, so I consider that basically the same thing.
My DD also needed to go to get to play sports so she went every year.
We don't, our insurnace stopped paying for them at the age of 6 or so and the visit itself was too much for us to pay out of pocket.
The kids doc reccomend every 2 years after the age of 11 unless anything unusual comes up. We took DD 12 and she has an appointment for 14. She did end up going in at 13 for strep and they did a whole work-up on her then too.
This is surprising to me, because my children's camps, as well as the sports teams in most high schools around here, require a physical every year. And most medical insurance companies pay for one each year, so it makes sense to get it.
