Preventive medicine focuses on the holistic health of the individual. The goal of preventive medicine is to protect, promote, and maintain well-being and aims to prevent disease, disability, and ensure a lifetime of healthy independence.
Acute care treats brief episodes of illness or trauma including viral colds, ear infections, sore throats, sprains, minor lacerations, fevers, rashes or vomiting/diarrhea. If you feel your child’s illness or injury is an emergency, please call 911.
Behavioral health includes not only ways of promoting well-being by preventing or intervening in mental illness such as depression or anxiety, but also an aim at preventing or intervening in substance abuse or other addictions.
A Plant based diet focuses around plant food: fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, healthy grains and the subsequent removal of animal products over time. Animal products include: meat, fish, butter, milk, cheese, eggs, gelatin, and other animal by-products.
Our group of providers includes board certified pediatricians, a physician assistant as well as a nurse practitioner. They have been providing medical services for over 20 years and take pride in providing quality healthcare for children from birth to late adolescence.
To better serve our patients we are open Saturdays! You can schedule same day sick appointments and there will be some time slots available for routine physicals, which may be scheduled in advance.
