Chronic Care Visits

We feel that in order to maintain good long-term health, it is important to manage and control chronic disease states.   Many complex medical issues can be well-controlled with a combination of healthy lifestyle and if needed, prescription medications.  We feel that a strong relationship between the patient and the provider is key to getting chronic medical conditions under control.  We manage many such problems, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, asthma, and allergies, among others.  We always focus on a healthy lifestyle first.  However, sometimes medications are necessary to achieve goals.   We educate patients on the potential benefits and risks of prescription medication.  We often schedule patients with chronic issues more frequently to ensure that everything is at goal.   We try to make the process as convenient as possible with in house lab draws, electronic prescriptions directly to the pharmacy, and communication via our Patient Portal.
