Integrated medicine is a focus of health care that uses a team-based approach to your primary care. It provides you with a better patient outcome, lowers your overall health care costs, and helps you avoid unnecessary hospital visits. You also have access to resources that improve your long-term health and reduce your risk factors for chronic diseases.
The team at Forward Care Family Practice offers a variety of integrated medicine services in-office for adults, including:
They also take an integrated approach to diagnosing and managing chronic diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
During an integrated medicine visit, the team at Forward Care Family Practice takes time to discuss any symptoms you’re experiencing since your last visit. They also review your personal and family medical history.
If you’re having a well-woman exam, your provider will perform a pelvic exam. They may also swab your cervix (Pap smear) to collect cells for a cervical cancer screening. If you’re interested in learning more about your options for birth control, they can discuss your options for oral pills, an intrauterine device (IUD), or injections.
The on-site medical lab is available to test for infections and pregnancy. The team can also evaluate your blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, and metabolic function through blood tests. The in-office electrocardiogram (EKG) allows the team to identify heart-related issues like arrhythmias during the same visit.
