Screenings & Testing
Meeting with your provider to get medical testing done will give you the answers you’ve been looking for about your chronic conditions. Allergy testing, spirometry testing, and screenings for other chronic conditions are used to understand where the issue is coming from.
Your primary care provider will recommend regular check-ups to analyze how the treatment is working and to stay up-to-date on your current conditions. Be sure to check in with your doctor any time you have an issue with medications or questions about your treatment.
Management & Treatment
Through preventive health care, your provider will recommend daily lifestyle choices to improve your health, healthy diet options, and any medications or therapy needed for the management of your ailment. If you have multiple health conditions, you may need to take multiple medications.
Pro Tip: Your doctor will make sure that your conditions are safely treated by knowing potential side effects and reactions with one another.
