The Importance Of Preventive Care

Health care does begin early. At Best Care Family Health Center in Milwaukee, WI, our pediatricians believe in closely following the littlest patients on through to their college years. Dr. Sandra Arce-Garzon and Dr. Sergio Casaclang join with parents in fostering proper development and preventing health problems with common-sense strategies that benefit the whole family.


Physically, emotionally, and socially

Your child develops in many ways over the years. From learning to breastfeed to walking to getting that first tooth and into the tumultuous pre-teen and teen years, the physical, social, and emotional changes are tremendous.

So, your Milwaukee pediatricians, Dr. Arce-Garson and Dr. Casaclang, and their staff provide health supervision, intervention as needed, and reduction in risk factors for disease and poor growth and development. Plus, we keep track of your child's medical chart, delivering information to school, daycare, sports teams, and other health care specialists according to parental request.


Your child's immunizations prevent big problems

Childhood shots are one of the best defenses against dangerous communicable diseases such as chickenpox, measles, pneumonia, and more. Your Milwaukee pediatricians administer vaccines according to the schedules published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). A cornerstone of preventive care, vaccines build important immunity and avoid serious, long-term complications.


Other preventive care

  • Measurement of height and weight and other assessments of growth and development
