Acute Illness
We understand that going to the doctor for many Avalon Park residents often means a sick visit. As a primary care physician, Dr. Constant-Peter provides comprehensive family medicine at Family & Women’s Health at Avalon Park, including the treatment of acute illnesses, such as strep throat or infections, and even sunburn or earaches.

Depending on your symptoms, the medical team at Family & Women’s Health at Avalon Park may recommend a variety of tests to accurately diagnose the acute illness. It is essential to determine if your skin condition is sunburn, poison ivy or shingles. Or is that tennis elbow, swimmer’s ear or a more in-depth ENT (ear nose throat) condition, such as a sinus infection or even an impacted or infected tooth that needs treatment. Once a proper diagnosis is established, Dr. Constant-Peter will better be able to prescribe follow-up care and continued treatment or management if necessary.

Our physician recommends annual physicals and routine health screenings and tests to avoid acute illness, such as the flu shot. She does her best to promote healthy lifestyle choices, coupled with routine preventive care. This level of quality and concern is made possible through our philosophy of living healthy and providing care using the latest technological advances available to treat the following acute illness:
