Chronic Condition Management

Arthritis

If you have arthritis, we’ll help you control pain and minimize further joint damage to maintain as much function as possible.

Asthma

Asthma can be controlled and we’ll help you do it. We offer spirometry testing and prescriptions customized to your specific needs.

Diabetes

Managing diabetes takes regular testing, dietary education, and prescriptions. We can help make this process easier for you through ongoing support and giving you clear guidelines on how to recognize problems and prevent serious complications from developing.

High Blood Pressure & High Cholesterol

Watching your blood pressure and cholesterol levels is an important part of keeping you well. If those levels get too high, your risks for heart disease and stroke increase, with the potential for serious complications. We’ll monitor your condition, talk with you about lifestyle changes, and prescribe medications when needed.

Tests & Screenings

We provide electrocardiograms (EKGs) as well as ankle-brachial index testing for vascular disease of the legs.

Pulmonary function testing helps your healthcare provider determine how well your lungs are working, assess an existing lung condition, diagnose a lung disease, or check how well a treatment is working.

We can take a sample of your skin or a suspicious mole in our office and perform testing to see if more follow up is needed.
