Preventive Medicine

Well Child Exam

Milagros Medical follows the comprehensive guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) for well-child visits, focusing on developmental milestones, nutrition, safety, your child and family's emotional well being and other recommendations from the AAP.  

 

School and Sports Physical Exams

Before your child starts school or the practice of any sport Milagros Medical will make sure he/she is healthy for these activities by conducting a physical exam which includes a medical history review and the following checks: pulse and blood pressure, weight and height, heart, abdomen, lungs, ears, nose and throat, proper vision and need of prescription lenses or its adjustment, and overall strength, flexibility, posture and joints

Annual Physical Exams

Milagros Medical will check and monitor the health of our adult patients by conducting annual physical exams focusing on heart´s health, lifestyle behaviors like smoking, excessive alcohol use, sexual health, diet and exercise.

Part of this visit also include laboratory studies as well as assessment of vaccination status.

The goal of preventive medicine is to protect, promote and maintain health and well-being and to prevent disease and disability. At Milagros Medical we have a firm commitment with our patients to achieve this goal.

At Milagros Medical we focus on the Latino population which is the fastest growing population in the U.S and the one affected with the highest incidence of Diabetes type 2 among other chronic conditions. We strongly believe that by making preventive care a priority and helping our patients achieve better lifestyle choices we can have an impact on this negative trend and therefore improve healthcare outcomes.
