Many families find that overseeing both the health of the child and the well-being of the parents, in tandem, has a highly positive effect on childrearing and overall family wellness. This is especially important during the earliest months of the newborn. Dr. Crandell has more than 20 years of pediatric experience across the full spectrum of early childhood health and development. With Member Plus Family Health, the ability of your doctor to spend more quality time in diagnosing and treating young patients, and to visit children in their home environment when necessary, engenders a level of care that is second to none.
One advantage of choosing a family physician is that your entire family can be cared for by the same doctor who knows each of you. A second reason to choose a family physician is that many people appreciate having the same doctor throughout their childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood. This way, the doctor will have personal knowledge of your medical history and a relationship built over the years. This can be a great help when it comes to diagnosing and treating ill family members. Finally, choosing Member Plus Family Health gives you the peace of mind that comes with having a doctor who can answer your questions and see your child after hours if needed.
