It is good for children to become comfortable and familiar with the medical environment. They won’t be children forever. Eventually, as children grow older, they may need to discuss something with the doctor that can’t be discussed with their parents. Children and young adults are very uncomfortable about personal matters and distress. This is amplified when dysfunction runs in the family unit. If children have a solid foundation built from good face-to-face experiences with the doctor during yearly visits, ultimately they will be more comfortable in a medical setting which will be beneficial long-term.
