Have you ever wondered what the doctor will do to your child during a general checkup? May you want to know so you can tell your child. First, the doctor or nurse will check your child's weight. Then, he or she will check height. Next, the patient’s eyes, mouth, nose, and ears will be checked for any abnormalities. Then the doctor will check the patient’s throat and lymph nodes. After that, the stomach will be checked for any pain, and heartbeat will be checked with a stethoscope. Finally, the patient’s back is checked for scoliosis. These are the normal procedures for a general checkup. These procedures may be varied from hospital to hospital.
