Family Practice Q & A

What is a family practice?

A family practice is a medical practice that provides primary care services and treatments for the whole family. Best Choice Primary Care serves men, women, and children 6 months and older throughout their lifespan.

A family practice deals with day-to-day medical care and a wide spectrum of diagnostic testing, preventive care, curative care, and a connection to a network of specialists when needed.

What is pediatric care?

Pediatric care is the branch of medicine centered on caring for infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends pediatric care until age 21.

Pediatric care focuses on the health complications and well-being commonly associated with children and adolescents as well as children’s growth and development.

The health professionals at Best Choice Primary Care know that every child is different and deserves time, consideration, and personalized medical treatment.

Health concerns of adults are often different to health concerns of children. Each adolescent or child responds differently to medications, illness, and the environment, depending on their family and medical history, age, and general health.

Pediatric care can include a number of screenings and tests, immunizations, and any necessary blood work or treatments to keep babies, children, and adolescents healthy throughout development.

What are the benefits of pediatric care?

It’s important that pediatric patients are properly educated about a healthy lifestyle to give them a better chance at becoming healthy adults. Your provider works to reduce a child’s risk of chronic disease and enhance physical and emotional wellness.

Most children are adventurous and active, so it’s important to take safety precautions to prevent injury. When you visit Best Choice Primary Care, you receive helpful guidelines to protect your child from injury and create a secure, safe, and comfortable home environment.

Pediatric care doesn’t just focus on physical health. It can also incorporate assessing and treating a child’s emotional health and any behavioral or social concerns.
