Diagnosis & Treatment of Acute & Chronic Illness
As skilled providers of primary care, our medical team takes a pro-active and personalized approach to address the needs of patients suffering from acute or chronic illnesses. From the diagnosis of the underlying cause of disease to the provision of any required medical support and treatment, we offer skilled, reliable, and compassionate care.
Understanding acute illness and care
While acute and chronic illnesses share some similar characteristics, there are significant differences. Typically, acute illnesses arise suddenly and resolve within a relatively short period of time. They can also occur anywhere in the body. Some examples of acute illnesses include the common cold, strep throat, and the flu. Although most acute illnesses can be treated and resolved without hospitalization, some like acute myocardial infarctions require immediate care and a period of hospitalization.
Whatever the case may be, early diagnosis of acute illness is essential. In our practice, we offer prompt and effective care to identify disease, alleviate discomfort, and prevent the development of more severe and long-lasting consequences.
In cases of chronic illness
We’re also well equipped to help patients address chronic illness and long-term conditions that present additional requirements of care. Illnesses like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis, among others, require a comprehensive treatment regimen to alleviate symptoms, halt or slow the progression and spread of disease, as well as prevent collateral damage or impairment.
Integrated, experienced and skilled care
Whether an illness is acute or chronic, our primary care providers are trained and experienced in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a wide range of conditions. As a patient’s medical home, we offer a personalized approach to care that considers all aspects of an individual’s health and well-being. We’re dedicated to providing the ongoing guidance, treatment, and monitoring of patients’ needs to preserve their quality of life and function. If an illness requires the care of a specialist, we’ll also make the appropriate referrals and remain involved to provide integrated, supportive, and coordinated care.
