As a family physician in Naperville, we offer Prime Immediate and Primary Care to all the members of your family. Dr. Fouzia Muhammedkarim, fellow in Family Medicine, believes “Primary care offers care that is personal, ongoing and comprehensive,” and she enjoys taking care of patients of all ages and backgrounds from infancy to seniors. At our practice, you will receive the highest quality medical care. We know that many people, especially children, may feel anxious about coming to the doctor, so it is our goal to make your visit with us as anxiety free as possible. We view it as our mission to educate our patients about their healthcare options and to help guide them to choose a treatment plan that is most suitable and appropriate for their needs. We are also deeply invested in children’s health and want to start them off right with appropriate preventative health care. We are also dedicated to providing immediate care for those in need.
Your family physician in Naperville pays special attention to your children’s health care. Coughs are one of our most common complaints in children. It can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection as well as allergies, asthma, heartburn, medications, and several other factors. Once the cause is determined, we will discuss your child’s appropriate treatment. We are able to perform nebulizer treatments on site to open the bronchial tubes and facilitate breathing. A sore throat often accompanies a cough and our doctors can help identify the cause. Middle and outer ear infections are very common childhood complaints. We will determine the cause and treat accordingly. Colds and fevers are also common complaints. A temperature in a young child is treated quite differently than that of an adult. A full physical examination will precede any therapy.
We frequently see and treat conjunctivitis, styes, corneal abrasions and foreign bodies of the eye. With the help of our state-of-the-art panoptic ophthalmoscopes, our family physician in Naperville can help diagnose and treat many common eye problems. Well visits are also part of our pediatric care. Physical exams for school and camp are also available. So if you are looking for a reliable, caring physician for your entire family, look no further than Prime Immediate and Primary Care. We are here to help in cases of emergencies or for general check-ups.
