Quality, Comprehensive, Preventative Healthcare Services
At Medemerge, we understand the importance of quality, comprehensive preventative healthcare services to keep everyone at their best. Our practice offers our patients and their families routine, annual wellness visits to evaluate their overall health.
Through regular visits, we get to know the patient and can hone in on any changes or issues that may arise so that they can be treated at the source! The adage about “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is true!
The physicians at Medemerge also perform routine health screenings for you and your family. These are preliminary tests performed to detect potential conditions before symptoms begin to show. These tests identify diseases and conditions early when they are easier to treat.
Some conditions that doctors commonly screen for include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Breast cancer and cervical cancer in women
- Colorectal cancer
- Type 2 diabetes
- Prostate cancer in men
- Testosterone deficiency
- Heart disease
- Carotid artery disease
- Atrial fibrillation
- Lung cancer
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
Blood Pressure Screening
As high blood pressure can be tricky to detect at just a glance, the medical practitioners at Medemerge recommend getting your blood pressure checked regularly. This test can be completed at our offices in a matter of minutes by using a device called a sphygmomanometer.
Type 2 diabetes is the most prevalent form of the disease, yet is often asymptomatic in its early stages, and can remain undiagnosed for many years. For this reason, regular screenings are crucial. Here at Medemerge, we specialize in diabetes detection and supplying our patients with the information necessary to take control of their health and ease their concerns.
One of the most important forms of preventative healthcare protocol is the use of immunizations. Through the distribution of vaccines, our team at Medemerge can help protect our patients from common diseases such as chickenpox, measles, flu, and hepatitis.
