  • Cholesterol Screenings

    Cholesterol testing is part of routine health maintenance and is recommended at least once ever five years.
    The numbers from your cholesterol test and related lipid profile gives us therapeutically important information for prevention of high and low blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks.
    For those in the high risk categories listed below, tests are ordered more frequently. High-risk factors include: Smoking, Hypertension, A family history of premature heart disease, Existing heart disease, Diabetes, Those who are on prescription cholesterol reducing drugs, Being overweight or obese
    Cholesterol numbers and what they indicateA desirable cholesterol level below 200 mg/dL (5.18 mmol/L) reflects a low risk of heart disease.A cholesterol level of 200 to 239 mg/dL (5.18 to 6.18 mmol/L) is considered to reflect moderate risk.A cholesterol level greater than or equal to 240 mg/dL (6.22 mmol/L) is considered high risk.
  • Obesity and Weight Management

    Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems.
    Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food energy intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or psychiatric illness. .
    Dieting and exercising are the main treatments for obesity. Diet quality can be improved by reducing the consumption of energy-dense foods, such as those high in fat and sugars, and by increasing the intake of dietary fiber. With a suitable diet, anti-obesity drugs may be taken to reduce appetite or decrease fat absorption.
    If diet, exercise, and medication are not effective, a gastric balloon may assist with weight loss, or surgery may be performed to reduce stomach volume and/or bowel length, leading to feeling full earlier and a reduced ability to absorb nutrients from food. Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing rates in adults and children.

    Authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century.
  • Diabetes

    Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both.
    Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).

    Type 1 Diabetes - the body does not produce insulin. Approximately 10% of all diabetes cases are type 1.
    Type 2 Diabetes - the body does not produce enough insulin for proper function. Approximately 90% of all cases of diabetes worldwide are of this type.
    The most common diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, intense thirst and hunger, weight gain, unusual weight loss, fatigue, cuts and bruises that do not heal, male sexual dysfunction, numbness and tingling in hands and feet.

    If you have Type 1 and follow a healthy eating plan, do adequate exercise, and take insulin, you can lead a normal life.

    Type 2 patients need to eat healthily, be physically active, and test their blood glucose. They may also need to take oral medication, and/or insulin to control blood glucose levels.
  • Hypertension

    High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
    Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected.

    Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with us to control it.
  • Ophthalmology

    Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that deals with the anatomy, physiology and diseases of the eye. An ophthalmologist is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems. Since ophthalmologists perform operations on eyes, they are both surgical and medical specialists. A multitude of diseases and conditions can be diagnosed from the eye.
    Ophthalmologists are physicians (MD/MBBS or D.O., not OD or BOptom) who have completed a college degree, medical school, and residency in ophthalmology. Ophthalmology training equips eye specialists to provide the full spectrum of eye care, including the prescription of glasses and contact lenses, medical treatment, and complex microsurgery. In many countries, ophthalmologists also undergo additional specialized training in one of the many sub-specialties. Ophthalmology was the first branch of medicine to offer board certification, now a standard practice among all specialties.

    We all depend on our vision in more ways that we may realize. Without healthy vision, our ability to work, play, drive or even recognize a face can be drastically affected. Many factors can affect our eyesight, including other health problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes. Having a family member with eye disease can make you more prone to having that condition as well. Sight-stealing eye disease can appear at any time. Very often they are unnoticeable at first and are difficult to detect.
  • Cancer Screenings

    As Doctors, we are highly motivated to keep you healthy. Your long, healthy life is our A+. Luckily for us, many types of cancer can be detected before they cause symptoms.
    By checking patients who have no symptoms for common cancers such as skin, breast, cervical or colon cancer, we can work together to increase patients’ longevity. If we can catch the disease in it’s early stages, cancer treatment is generally more effective. Unfortunately, not all forms of cancer have screening tests, or if they do, such as for lung cancer or prostate cancer, these tests haven’t been determined to reduce the number of cancer deaths.
    There are benefits and risks to these tests.This test does use radiation to create the images, and for that reason, it is recommended only for those who have a medium-risk of heart attack. The reasoning for this is that if you are in the low-risk category (minimal family history, younger than 55, non-smoker with blood pressure and cholesterol levels in the healthy range), the test probably won’t tell you what you and your doctor don’t already know.
