Acute and Chronic Disease Management
Our team of doctor and staff strive to improve the overall health of our patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing and treating health issues.
According to the Center of Disease Control, chronic diseases cause 7 out of 10 deaths each year and are responsible for 86 percent of America's health care costs. Some of the most common chronic diseases include:
Other types of chronic conditions include:
- Heart disease
- Headaches/Back pain/Joint pain
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
- Cystic fibrosis
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Eating disorders
- Gum disease
Unfortunately, these conditions can also cause other long-term complications, including kidney failure, disability and limb amputation. Your doctor, however, can often help prevent these diseases altogether, or find the best ways to treat your condition and manage your symptoms. Through routine medical visits, we can pinpoint issues while they are manageable - sometimes even when still reversible.
Turn to us to have your chronic disease diagnosed and treated, and you can see your quality of life drastically improve. Don't hesitate - if you think you may be suffering the symptoms of a chronic disease, call us at 623-594-4126 and schedule an appointment today.
At some point in our lives we will all experience a health problem, whether it's the common cold or a pesky flu. While some will go away on their own, there are health issues that require urgent medical attention, and it's important to know when to seek proper treatment.
What Is an Acute Disease?
An acute disease appears suddenly and lasts for a short amount of time. This is different from chronic diseases, which develop gradually and remain for months on end. Some examples include the influenza virus and the common cold.
Acute diseases can include these common symptoms:
- Sore throat
- Runny nose
Through a physical examination and identifying your symptoms, your doctor can provide a diagnosis and individualized treatment plan to care for your acute illness. We also offer Vaccines to prevent flu and other illnesses. Call us at 623-594-4126 for more information.
