It is optimal to prevent disease. General well visits and periodic labs area good way to identify if you are at risk for the 'Big 3'. Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia, and Diabetes which can lead to 'Big 4th' . . . Heart Disease. This is the disease from which America is dying, and it sequelae. Lifestyle measures can be instituted early to prevent this.
If these conditions develop there are simple steps including medications that can be started to change the course of the disease and the effects on one's health. We take pride in our staff and the ability to manage patient's care and health care information in an organized and efficient way.
