Primary Care Focus

We’re dedicated to building a continuous relationship based on communication and patient engagement where the ultimate goal is to coordinate your care for both wellness and illness. We encourage you to get engaged with this process and help co-lead our exceptional heath care team to get the results you deserve.

Our process of promoting your health and sense of well-being includes the following steps:

Health Assessment

Health Assessment is important to accurately evaluate and record your health history and health status. Key factors in your evaluation include:

  • Medical History

  • Medications

  • Allergies

  • Past Surgeries

  • Family History

  • Social History

  • Physical Examination

Preventive Medicine and Health Screening

A major part of your overall health today is focused around disease prevention and adherence to medically accepted guidelines of screening to promote your best possible health.

Preventive Medicine utilizes:

Preventative Health Screening evaluations are an important part of your heath care.

We encourage you to take full advantage of age and risk based health screenings to promote your best health. (The decision to screen for these diseases and the methods used for evaluation should be a mutually agreed upon decision by you and your health care provider.)

Recommended screenings may include:

  • Colorectal Screening

  • Breast Cancer Screening

  • Cervical Cancer Screening

  • Osteoporosis Screening

  • Diabetic Screening

  • Prostate Cancer Screening

  • Cardiovascular Disease Screening

Acute Episodic Care

 

Acute Episodic Care was in the past the most frequent reason to seek a health care provider.

Acute illness and injury are often unavoidable in everyday life.

Primary Care Medicine should be your first step into the health care system for evaluation and management recommendations. Most conditions are quickly and easily cared for at this step. If you should need additional consultation and evaluation, our goal is to help you efficiently navigate the health care community to get the help you need. Common acute illnesses include:

  • Upper and lower tract respiratory infections

  • Low back pain

  • Sprains and strains

  • Rashes and skin lesions

  • Chest pains

  • Joint inflammation

  • Abdominal pain

  • Urinary tract infections

Chronic Disease Management

Chronic Disease Management represents the most important new evolution in health care delivery. Significant emphasis on chronic diseases and their management is a key aspect of promoting good health and preventing medical complications of disease.

Our focus is to work with you to promote the best practices to achieve the goals that promote a healthier you. We use medical care coordinators, medical homes and electronic medical records to work with you in this process. Current chronic disease management initiatives include:

  • Diabetes management

  • Hypertensive management

  • Chronic obstructive lung disease management

  • Asthma management

  • Congestive heart failure management

  • Coronary heart disease management
