Our Integrative Primary Care practice specializes in Primary Care for Women, Men, Children, and Newborns.
In addition to treating the sniffles, bruises, and other minor health complaints, we provide annual exams for general health, sports exams, and stage of life screenings.
Our annual examinations for females include complete physicals, thin-prep pap smears (which are by far more accurate and sensitive than regular pap smears), thorough blood work including general blood count and chemistry, cholesterol, blood sugar and vitamin D assessment, hormonal evaluation, BIA (body impedance analysis) and at times nutritional blood status and assessment. Breast Thermography is strongly recommended for breast cancer screening and hormonal evaluation in conjunction with mammograms. EKG and Dexa Bone Density scans are also recommended depending on the age.
Annual exams for men include complete physicals including prostate exam and musculoskeletal evaluation, complete blood work including general blood count and chemistry, cholesterol, PSA, blood sugar and vitamin D status, hormonal evaluation including free testosterone and sex-binding hormone globulin, and at times nutritional blood analysis. Bone density testing is indicated for men over 45 years of age or those with low testosterone levels. EKG and BIA may also be ordered depending on risk factors. Screening Thermography may be ordered to evaluate for risk of Diabetes, heart disease, and musculoskeletal concerns.
Newborn, infant and children exams are routinely performed and include complete physical and genitalia exam. Spinal assessment is performed with every exam from newborn to teenage years. Food allergy evaluation and nutritional evaluation may also be performed depending on risk factors present. Vaccination counseling is also available for parents with questions.
Our physicians are trained in in-office minor surgical procedures and may occasionally find the need to provide such services.
Please note: Surgery of the face, including removal of lesions and stitches, are often referred to a plastic surgeon.
When absolutely necessary our physicians are licensed to prescribe or refill pharmaceutical medications to alleviate your symptoms while the underlying cause is being investigated and treated.
Occasionally, you may be referred to a specialist for regular monitoring of heart and seizure medications, anti-psychotic medications and if necessary for narcotic pain medications.
