Family Care Partners Wellness Approach
Your entire care team is focused on keeping you healthy. We encourage you to get regular check-ups and communicate with your doctor and care coordinator. We believe that early detection of medical problems and timely intervention for treatment is in the best interest of our patients’ physical and financial health. We offer many preventive screenings and our Well Baby, Well Child and Well Woman programs are designed to keep you and your family happy and healthy, while avoiding the potential for high out-of-pocket costs.
WELL BABY VISITS
If you are pregnant and/or your pregnancy was diagnosed as high-risk, you should make an appointment with one of our board-certified physicians to discuss your prenatal care and impending baby care. Our doctors are happy to answer your questions and assist you with any of your concerns. For all parents, new and experienced, our staff can arrange for a consultation for you to discuss general issues such as feeding or sleeping habits, or sensitive issues such as circumcision. During this very early developmental stage, your baby will need routine pediatric visits for follow-up exams and immunizations. To take advantage of our "well baby" visits program, contact the Family Care Partners office location nearest you. Our courteous staff will gladly answer all of your questions.
WELL CHILD VISITS
"Well Child" visits are important for monitoring your child's rapid growth and emotional development during early years of change. Our pediatricians will monitor your baby’s development and measure each milestone. For your school-aged child, Family Care Partners will keep you informed of any infectious diseases that we see in Jacksonville, the Intracoastal area, Fleming Island and Ponte Vedra Beach so you can be better prepared. Our goal is to maintain your children’s physical, mental, and social well-being and whether it is eating habits, vaccines, or athletics, your pediatrician will discuss any issues or concerns you have during these ”anything but” routine visitations.
WELL WOMAN VISITS
We recommend that all women who are sexually active or over the age of 21 should have annual gynecological exams and wellness screenings to maintain their health. During your "Well Woman" visits, your physician and nurse practitioner perform a routine physical exam, which includes a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam. It is also important for all women, regardless of age, to have a Pap test as part of their routine health exam to aid in the early detection of cancer. Once you reach age 65, however, you can discuss your risk factors with our family physician to determine the need to continue having Pap tests.
