Physical exams and wellness visits
Annual check-ups play an important role in your health. LCH will help you build an ongoing relationship with your primary care provider here in Kennett Square, so that we can quickly understand and easily address changes to your health. Our doctors and medical specialists see all ages, but for infants, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our pediatric office in West Grove.
LCH Kennett Square follows guidelines from the Center for Disease Control for vaccinations. They are an essential part of good health—for you, for your family, and for the community as a whole. Talk with your provider about the next vaccine you need, such as your annual flu shot, or the next series of immunizations that your child needs as he or she continues to grow. Don’t have insurance or worried that your insurance won’t cover it? LCH provides vaccinations for patients without insurance or those with minimal coverage on a sliding fee scale based on income level and family size.

Diagnosis and treatment for chronic illness
Your body is constantly developing throughout your lifetime, but do not put off seeing a doctor when it comes to changes like shortness of breath or chest pain. We can help screen, diagnose, and provide treatment for successful management of diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes. If addressed early, we may even be able to help prevent the onset of the disease.
