Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends people be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. Comprehensive Wellness embraces the philosophy of supporting the whole child and family via a flexible and comfortable environment.
Internists at Comprehensive Wellness are physicians specializing in internal medicine, a discipline focused on the care of adults emphasizing use of the best medical science available in caring for patients in the context of thoughtful, meaningful doctor-patient relationships. Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings—no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time.
Comprehensive Wellness clinicians recognize that challenges for patients and families related to aging require flexibility and accommodation to the older patients’ unique needs. Our clinicians understand that a multifaceted approach is needed and strive to evaluate the older person’s medical, social, emotional, and other needs. The team also focuses on health concerns common in older people such as incontinence, falls, memory problems, and managing multiple chronic conditions and medications. We offer home visits and telephone visits to make caring for this patient population simpler for families and for the patients themselves.
