Good health is a life­long pur­suit and health in lat­er life is often pred­i­cat­ed by behav­ior and inter­ven­tions ear­li­er in life. Pre­ven­tive care in chil­dren is an oppor­tu­ni­ty, even an oblig­a­tion, to address prob­lems ear­ly in a per­son­’s life.This is not only to ward off a lat­er con­di­tion, but to give chil­dren the best chance for a ful­ly pro­duc­tive life.

"Dr. Akhtar took excellent care of my daughter. She examined her and addressed the immediate health issue, and also spent several explaining the Coronavirus to my daughter who has a lot of anxiety about it. She explained precautions she could take and reassured her about the impact on children. My daughter was greatly relieved following the visit and I appreciated Dr. Akhtar's time and caring approach to addressing the situation. She did not dismiss my daughters concerns but took them seriously and provided a lot of comfort. Dr. Akhtar is the best!"
