Family MedicineWaukesha, WI
From medical checkups to visiting the DMV, there are a large variety of appointments people do not enjoy but are important for one’s benefit and health. While most adults will go when necessary, children are not always as keen to visit a doctor or medical practice. By offering family medicine, we can help ease the treatment process and promote regular checkups. One of the most common things we can help to make easier is families that have to drive to separate locations for medical care.
Driving from one office to another, many families have to make multiple trips in order to get health care for all of their family members. While necessary, the number of trips can be exhausting and promote postponing a regular checkup to avoid the extra driving. Fortunately, we can help save families the extra trips by providing primary care at our practice.
Once a child reaches a certain age, he or she may no longer need to visit a pediatrician for medical treatment. We not only provide primary care for non-life-threatening injuries, illnesses and other health issues, but we also provide treatment for regular checkups. For many families with children, extracurricular activities and sports are a common factor in daily life.
Whatever the sport may be, most will require every team member receive a physical before the season begins. We understand how hectic a schedule can be and how easy it is for time to pass, catching a parent unaware. Thus, we provide physicals for a variety of situations and patients of varying ages, including:
- Leaving for a trip abroad
Providing a Positive Experience
One of our goals at Village Primary Care Providers is to help younger patients continue healthy practices, such as regular checkups, into adulthood. Far too often, people stop seeking doctor’s visits unless they are sick or have an injury. However, regular checkups can detect the early stages of a condition and offer treatment recommendations before it gets worse. In order for children to avoid that, we strive to help them have positive experiences with medical visits.
In order to do this, we create a warm and welcoming environment to help patients relax during the appointment. We will take the time to introduce the child to the regular checkup routine and have the parent present during the checkup. This way, when the child is actually sick or needs treatment, the child will be more comfortable with the idea of visiting our office.
If necessary, we can also introduce the child to the other team members before we begin the appointment. By doing this, the child will feel more comfortable with visits in the future.
Treat Multiple Generations in One Place
While treating children is important, we understand that teenagers may not need or want as many regular visits. In those cases, we can offer treatment to teenagers who no longer want to see a pediatrician. We can provide them with the necessary medical care while also treating other family members. In fact, treating multiple family generations will help younger family members feel comfortable visiting for the first time.
Along with checkups and physicals, we also provide patients:
- Wound care
- Same day doctor care
- Preventive care
- Minor injury treatment
- Blood work
- Holistic health care
- Adult immunizations
- B12 injections
Patients may not realize they are experiencing the early stages of an illness or condition. With regular checkups, we can help prevent these early warning signs from becoming worse and causing more problems. In adults, we can monitor blood pressure and cholesterol with older patients in order to help them stay healthy. High levels can be a sign of various conditions or other issues. By keeping track of them, we can notice any unnatural changes and recommend treatment.
We want you and your family to be able to receive the care you need when you need it. Thus, we can offer home health visits for patients who cannot easily or do not want to leave their home. If you prefer this, then let us know during the consultation process and we will see what we can do. With family medicine, we can help your family members stay healthy and receive the professional care they need.
