What Is Pediatrics?
Pediatrics is the specialized care of individuals from the age of birth to the age of achieving adult maturity. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Association of Family Physicians generally identify the “ripe old age” of 18 years as the age when adolescents transition their care to Family Physicians and Internists. In actuality the age when individuals move from pediatrics to adult services is determined by politics, emergency department policies, insurance plan benefit rules, medical conditions, college matriculation status and sometimes just by patient preference alone. At ANWAN Wellness Medical Center we have health practitioners that are ready and trained to care for individuals from birth to the age of 110. Our integrative approach to health and wellness assures that we provide you with the nutritional knowledge, the supplement support, and the lifestyle guidelines to avoid your having an accelerated aging through the years.
