In the early years of her practice, Dr. Melaney Caldwell, M.D., realized she was seeing many children with the same health issues again and again. A brief visit, prescription medication, and the child would be better---for a while.
Believing there was a better way to treat children; Dr. Caldwell began Caldwell Pediatrics and Wellness Center in 2006.
Caldwell Pediatrics and Wellness Center offers a different pediatric experience. We provide holistic and integrative pediatric care or a more general approach. Our services include nutrition and wellness support. We know that each child is unique and incredibly special and our variety of services and practitioners allows us to support their individual needs.
Due to Dr. Caldwell’s belief in allowing her patients’ parents to CHOOSE how they would like to vaccinate their children, unfortunately, Virginia Vaccines For Children has decided to end Caldwell Pediatrics and Wellness Center’s participation in the program. Virginia Vaccines For Children is a state-run program that provides vaccines for VA state Medicaid clients. It is only through this program that primary care physicians, such as Dr. Caldwell, are able to service their Medicaid clients with immunizations.
Caldwell Pediatrics is proud to provide quality health care for all children, and we will continue to provide quality care designed to support your child/ren's health and wellbeing. We will also provide you with information on area Health Departments that can give the vaccinations. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to continuing to serve as one of your preferred healthcare partners.
The Five Pillars of Health
Sleep- Water- Air -Exercise- Nutrition
The Five Pillars of Health represent the necessary elements to ensure health and wellness. Proper rest, clean water, fresh air, physical activity, and healthy foods are important components of life and in order to provide a nourished life for our children these must be incorporated into their everyday lives.
Caldwell Pediatrics and Wellness Center is built around the idea that children will thrive when their lifestyles incorporate the Five Pillars of Health on a daily basis.
