The doctor's job is to make sure that I am healthy! When we get to the doctor's office, I will check in at the front desk.Then I will wait in the waiting room until it is my turn. There are fun toys to play with!When my name is called, it is my turn. The doctor will ask me to take off my shoes. Then the doctor will ask me to step on a scale. This shows everyone how big I am getting! The doctor will ask me to stand against the wall. I will stand up straight. This will show the doctor how tall I am!When the doctor tells me to, I can put my shoes back on. The doctor might ask me to sit on the table. This is okay. Being up high helps the doctor see me better.Next, the doctor will check my temperature. The doctor will also shine a light in my ears, nose, and eyes. I will sit still. The doctor will use their stethoscope. This is to listen to my heart and lungs. I am being brave! Sometimes, the doctor will put a blood pressure cuff on my arm. The cuff will give my arm a hug! While I am with the doctor, they may also look at different parts of my body. I will listen to the doctor and be patient.Soon I will be all done. Everyone will be so proud to see how brave I am!
