What is a Family Practice?
A Family practice is an important part of care for both you and your child. Having a family practice can also give you peace-of-mind, knowing that your family’s needs are the top priority. The doctors at Best Care Family Health Center in Milwaukee, WI, are committed to providing the best in family practice services to keep your family healthy.
Immunizations are an important part of your child's health. Having the proper vaccinations at the right time helps ensure your child is protected against serious diseases like the measles, mumps, flu, meningitis, and hepatitis. When your child is immunized, it protects you and other family members too, by limiting the spread of disease. The Centers for Disease Control publishes a list of recommended vaccinations from birth to age 18.
Well-child visits are another vital way to keep your child healthy. Regular monitoring of your child’s weight, height, growth rate, and other factors helps ensure your child stays on the road to good health. Well care appointments are designed to cover everything from basic health check-ups and screenings, to nutrition counseling, developmental assessments and childhood immunizations. Every child's healthcare needs and development timeline is different, but wellness checkups are generally recommended every two to four months for the first 30 months, and then yearly from age 3-18 depending on their individual health needs.
Routine physicals and sports physicals are also a necessary part of comprehensive healthcare for your child. Regular physical examinations make sure your child is healthy enough to attend school and play sports.
In addition to immunizations and physicals, the doctors at Best Care Family Health Center provide a wide range of services to treat common issues in children including allergies, asthma, and other conditions.
Even as adults, there are a variety of health issues that can happen that you can work to prevent. From breast cancer and colorectal screenings to getting the flu shot each year, there are certain measures you can take to prevent health problems from surfacing. While some of these issues can’t always be prevented, coming in for routine checkups once a year can also ensure that if there is something wrong that it’s detected early when it’s easier to treat and manage.
