Chronic Illness Management
Chronic illnesses include, but are not limited to, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, arthritis and allergies. Such illnesses generally require a lifetime of treatment.
Acute care illnesses include such things as upper respiratory infections, bladder infections, back, neck and other musculoskeletal injuries – maladies that, while possibly severe, are generally brief when properly treated.
Our physicians strongly recommend you have a wellness physical once a year. An annual wellness examination provides our physicians with the information necessary to ensure you maintain a healthy lifestyle, and is also a key to early diagnosis and treatment of potentially serious diseases.
Many insurance policies now cover most, if not all, the cost of a wellness visit.
Include Pap smears (Papanicolaou test), prostate exam, blood work, colon (Colorectal) cancer screening.
Maintaining the recommended immunization schedule is an important aspect of wellness for both adult and pediatric patients. We encourage you to check with your physician to make certain you are current.
On-Site Lab & X-Ray
Our lab is able to perform blood tests, urinalysis, serologies for mono and pregnancy tests.
Physicians are able to order chest, bone and joint X-rays on-site and have the results within a reasonable amount of time.
The availability of these capabilities in our clinic (and not at a third-party facility) allows us to provide you with quicker diagnosis and treatment – often while you are being examined.
