When your child is well, we think in terms of preventive medicine. One type of preventive medicine is health promotion: how to live in a healthy way, what to expect for development, nutrition, discipline, temperament, and so on. A second type of prevention is avoiding disease: for instance, advice on how and when to baby-proof the house, and also giving the child immunizations. A third type of prevention is early detection: looking for early signs of disease, so treatment can be started early.

In our practice, we try to emphasize prevention a great deal. We try to schedule frequent preventive visits to check on growth and development, to answer your questions, and to give you some handouts for health education. In many ways we feel that these are our most important services.
