Primary Care Questions

What is “internal” medicine?
Internal medicine doctors provide adults with routine primary care and prevention services as well as in-depth care for chronic illnesses. Opposed to only studying a disease’s external manifestations, internal medicine providers, or internists can treat the whole body.
What is a primary care physician?
Primary care physicians, or PCPs, are doctors who help you coordinate all aspects of your healthcare–physical, mental, and emotional. They will listen to you, ask questions, analyze symptoms, recommend treatments, and prescribe medications.
Do I need a primary care physician?
It is essential to have a PCP. The role of these doctors is to get to know you, your health history, and to build a trusting relationship with you over your lifetime. The benefit of this becomes lower overall health costs and better management of chronic diseases.

Pediatric Questions

What is a Pediatrician?
A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children. Pediatricians have undergone special training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens, and young adults. The majority of pediatricians are certified by the American Board of Pediatrics after passing a comprehensive exam.

Pediatricians provide preventive health care for children in good health and medical care for acutely or chronically ill children. They also provide parents with support and advice regarding growth and development, safety and prevention, nutrition, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.

How often should my child see the pediatrician?

Your child should not only see a pediatrician for an illness. It is also important to schedule well-child care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Also called well-care visits or checkups, these routine examinations provide the best opportunity for the doctor to observe the progress of your child’s physical and mental growth and development. These appointments also provide the opportunity to counsel and teach parents, detect problems through screening tests, provide immunizations, and to get to know one another. Well-care visits are strongly recommended as part of preventive pediatric care.

Well-child visits are also a good time for parents to raise questions and concerns about a child’s development, behavior, nutrition, safety, and overall well-being.

For reference, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends this schedule for routine well-care visits:

  • 3 to 5 days
  • 1 month
  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 9 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months
  • 18 months
  • 24 months
  • 30 months
  • 3 years
  • 4 years

And once every year after that for an annual health supervision visit, which includes a physical exam and a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment.

Why does my child need to receive vaccinations?
Immunizations are a series of shots given to children at different ages to help ward off serious and potentially fatal childhood diseases. Ensuring your child receives immunizations when scheduled is the best way to help protect your child from potentially fatal diseases. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, vaccinations have reduced the number of infections from vaccine-preventable diseases by more than 90%. If you’re apprehensive about vaccinations, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
