What we do
Personalized Care and Guidance
Welcome to Natural Care MD (also known as Craig Ranch Pediatrics)!
Choosing a healthcare provider is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. Your provider and her staff will partner with you long term to provide the best quality care and meet your ever-changing needs. Natural Care MD is a relatively small practice that provides general pediatric care for ages birth to 18 years of age. Dr. Salem is currently a solo practitioner with a small support staff in comparison to other pediatric practices. A small practice such as ours tends to provide more intimate, personalized care but also may not provide the conveniences of a larger practice such as weekend and evening hours.
In addition to our physician, we have pediatric doctors and physician assistant available to see patients for preventative care as well as acute visits. Physician Assistants have the training and skill needed to assess, diagnose, and treat patients. They also have prescriptive authority.
Our office is open Monday through Friday. It is always staffed by our physician and / or our physician assistant. Our nursing staff are up to date on current pediatric trends and medical issues that may impact your family. We provide quality, family-centered care in a home-like environment.
Our office also has a separate practice dedicated to the treatment of children with chronic medical problems. These can range from Allergies and Eczema to Autoimmune conditions and Autism.
We would welcome the opportunity to be a part of your child's growth and development. Please carefully consider if our office will be able to meet your individual needs.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and listening to the parents' concerns is of the utmost importance.
Well Baby/ Well Child Care
We promote regular check-ups according to the schedule proposed by the American Academy of Pediatrics. We use anticipatory guidance and safety counseling guidelines as outlined in the Bright Futures project, developed at the Harvard Medical School Public Health Department.
We have chosen to devote a large proportion of well-baby visits to screening babies for developmental problems, supporting families in their parenting efforts, and counseling caregivers about safety, feeding, sleep and behavioral issues. Insurance companies reimburse the same amount of money for a quick physical exam labeled as a well-baby visit as they do for the extensive visits we provide.
We hope you enjoy and appreciate the extra time!
