Personalized Pediatric Care & Nurturing Guidance


“Prevention is the best medicine.” It’s an apt phrase, but it can be misleading. Fertile Crescent preaches preventative strategies as more of a lifestyle than a remedy. It takes a proactive approach — parents and practitioners working together to implement an effective plan of pediatric care. The preventive strategies Dr. Despinasse and his staff recommend are designed to allow for optimal care, and families who follow these prevention guidelines often ensure a healthier lifestyle for their children from an early age.

Early Recognition and Intervention

We know that certain disease states manifest early in life and can have profound effects on overall health. Addressing these problems early on helps pediatric care physicians to better prevent and reduce environmental risk factors, which leads to improved disease management and a healthier lifestyle overall. Specific areas of concern and pediatric risk factors to monitor include:


Education and advocacy are the most powerful tools we have to promote childhood health and wellness. At Fertile Crescent Pediatrics, we are first and foremost the child’s advocate, from birth through adolescence. When parents go beyond basic pediatric care to reinforce healthy lifestyle habits in their kids, they safeguard their wellness for the remainder of their lives.
