Well Baby Clinic
The Well Baby Clinic is available for well babies from ages 2 weeks to 18 months. Children receive a comprehensive examination and immunizations during well child visits. The separate clinic is needed to separate the healthy infants from other infants and children with acute illnesses in the Pediatric Clinic. Infants less than two years old receive their immunizations at the time of their Well Baby appointment. Please schedule a routine health appointment when your infant is due for immunizations so that a routine assessment can be done in addition to the immunizations.
Bring medical records and all shot records to the appointment. Call (254) 288-8888 for an appointment.
A pediatrician is available to see patients who are age 10 and older. Gynecology appointments for adolescents are available on Mondays. For males and visits not requiring a well woman examination, appointments are available Tuesdays-Fridays (based on availability) in the Pediatrics Clinic. Make appointments through the Patient Appointment Service, 288-8888. For questions about the Adolescent Medicine, call 286-7640.
School & Sports Physicals
Daycare, school and sports physicals are available by scheduling a routine appointment with your child's PCM. Please bring all necessary school forms with the medical records and shot records.
Schedule a routine health appointment for immunizations through the Patient Appointment Service for children 2 years and older. We prefer you schedule a routine health visit for your child to complete an assessment in addition to the immunizations.

Exceptional Family Member Program
The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) is a mandatory enrollment program that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated medical, educational, housing, community support, and personnel services to families with special needs. An exceptional family member is a family member (child or adult) with any physical, emotional, developmental, or intellectual disability that requires special treatment, therapy, education, training, or counseling. Contact the EFMP clinic located at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center (first floor, room 1257, call 288-8099) to begin the assessment process and obtain the enrollment forms.
