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.
Many insurance policies now cover most, if not all, the cost of a wellness examination.
Our physicians strongly recommend you have a wellness visit once a year. An annual wellness examination provides our physicians with the information necessary to ensure you maintain a healthy lifestyle, and is also key to early diagnosis and treatment of potentially serious diseases.
As part of our wellness care, our physicians also provide Medicare Annual Wellness Visits. These visits allow us to make sure we can provide you the best preventative care at the right time.
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.
Our doctors diagnose and provide long-term management of asthma for many patients.
Controlling chronic conditions can be easier when you understand what to eat and how to keep a healthy lifestyle. Our Registered Dietitian can assist in building a healthy, well-balanced diet plan for you and provide guidance as you manage your health.
Whether you are recently starting a new medication or have had a change in your medication regime, our pharmacist can provide support with your medication therapy. Our pharmacist can also monitor complex medications such as warfarin, diabetes medications and respiratory inhalers.
