Rather than wait for an illness to strike, preventative medicine tries to stop damage before it can start. This involves a thorough understanding of child development, your child’s medical history and the signs and symptoms of a wide range of illnesses. High Desert Pediatrics offers complete pediatric care, incorporating preventative medicine to ensure your child always gets the best treatment.
What is Preventative Medicine?
Rather than waiting for an illness to become dangerous, it’s better to treat it early when the symptoms are manageable. Preventative medicine takes that a step further; the focus is on improving the health of individuals to stop illnesses before they even begin.
Immunization and wellness checks are part of the preventative medicine that High Desert Pediatrics offers as part of general care. This includes a personalized method of caregiving; our pediatricians watch for the small details that could indicate a potential health problem. And we’re always able to provide diet and nutrition guidance as well as physicals to ensure your child is ready for sports activities.
