Our goal is to provide the best pediatric care while still using the Functional Medicine approach.
Our goal at Kare Health & Wellness is to provide personalized, integrative care for your child while still prioritizing appropriate growth & development.
Understanding and building on the strength of whole families requires us to combine the best of traditional bench markers and the functional medicine approach of “whole-person care”, no matter how young the patient is.
Our goal is to provide the best pediatric care using the Functional Medicine approach. Our providers will not only focus on the child's well-being with well-visits, but provide recommendations and guidance to moms and dads along the way!
These visits are designed to monitor the progress of your child as they advance from a newborn to a healthy teenager and into early adulthood. Together we will be able to see how your child has developed since their last well-child visit.
We understand how important GOOD nutrition is to our patients. We work with moms and dads to understand how to use food as a tool in their child's health!
We will help you measure how your child is growing!
We help families unlock the secrets to GOOD quality sleep for children. Adequate sleep is necessary to grow and develop properly!
We want to empower and support parents in whatever decision they make regarding vaccines.
Our goal is to help parents identify and reduce the heavy burden of toxins found in everyday products, foods and environments.
What To Expect
A well-child visit is an opportunity to track your child’s health and development. Our provider will take measurements, conduct a head-to-toe examination, and evaluate your child's physical development. You'll have the opportunity to have a REAL discussion about your preferences and receive education and empowerment to make your own choice about your child's healthcare.
Your well-child visit includes 4 specific areas of focus:
- Determining whether your child has any health concerns
- Offering ways to keep your child from developing health concerns
- Providing support for your child’s overall health and well-being
- Talking through health information and offering advice
During each visit, our pediatric provider will examine your child, take measurements, assess development and behavior and order screening tests. We will also answer any questions you have regarding your child, including sleep, digestion, behavior, and nutrition. We provide education and empowerment to parents to be in their driver's seat of their child's health. We work with parents and provide encouragement to make informed decisions regarding vaccinations and alternative vaccination schedules.

The Kare Approach
We look at your child as a whole person instead of isolating their symptoms. This helps us identify underlying problems that may have never been discovered before.
Factors that influence a healthy and balanced child can include sleep, nutrition, lifestyle and environments. By addressing each of these areas, we can create a comprehensive plan to address concerns and prepare for the age related and developmental changes you and your child will encounter.
"My goal is to give you education and empowerment to set your child up for success! By thinking outside of the box, considering ALL factors and being proactive, we can ensure that your child will grow and develop without added exposures or burdens. This is more than 'well-child care' it truly is 'whole-person care', no matter the age!"
