The Primary Care You Need
Preventive care is the foundation of our approach to medical care. Our goal is to identify and prevent a medical issue well before it would normally occur. Personal MD provides thorough, annual age-specific health screenings for men and women. Your provider will evaluate your current state of health, discuss available tests, and recommend improvements for your well-being.
Your exam will include vital signs, vision screen, hearing screen, EKG, urine screen, family history review, review of systems, medication review, supplement review, thorough head-to-toe examination, and laboratory evaluation. Based on your age and family history, we often include extra tests to check for high-risk cardiac disease, Alzheimer’s disease screening, and appropriate genetic analysis.
It’s common to misunderstand the term “acute” by thinking it means “severe.” Acute refers to immediate, in other words, something resolvable that is happening right now. The flu, a new rash, an ear infection, and a migraine are all examples of acute medical issues. In most cases, the doctor will exam and recommend a treatment to help you get better.
Personal MD offers same-day or next-day service to get you in when you don’t feel well. You no longer have to worry about waiting days to weeks to see your provider when you feel sick.
Chronic is the opposite of acute because it classifies something as persistent or long-lasting. Personal MD incorporates national guidelines to provide our patients with up-to-date primary care for hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, heart disease, asthma, arthritis, osteoporosis, and many other chronic conditions.
Your Personal MD provider will provide education, training, and medication to manage your chronic condition. On occasion, you may need to see a specialist. Your Personal MD provider can help coordinate getting you in to see a trusted specialist so you can get the care you need.
In Office Procedures
After Hours Care
We Are Here When You Need Us
Personal MD provides the same or next-day evaluation for urgent medical problems, including minor injuries and treatment of issues appropriate to primary care. Examples of urgent care issues include laceration repairs, non-displaced fractures, IV hydration, and much more. Our goal is to keep you out of the urgent care center and out of the emergency room.
Personal MD offers selected therapeutic and diagnostic procedures in our office, including but not limited to the following: Blood draws, EKGs, joint injections, skin biopsies, wart removal, wound care, PAP smears, and cryotherapy.
There is generally a small charge to get samples processed and the equipment needed to perform the procedure. When possible, we will use your medical insurance for laboratory evaluation and radiology services. Extra charges are always discussed before your treatment is delivered.
We understand that after-hours medical coverage is occasionally needed. You will have direct access to your Personal MD provider for urgent medical issues that can not wait until the next business day. Each provider has remote access to your medical record and will help you decide the best approach for your medical issue.
Weight Loss Therapy
We Love Making You Look As Good As You Feel
Weight Loss Therapy
Our approach to weight loss focuses on introducing lifestyle changes, improving a better understanding of food and how our body uses food, appropriate exercise recommendations, and screening for medical conditions such as insulin resistance, hormone deficiencies, and thyroid disease. We also use FDA-approved medical weight loss medications when needed.
Both men and women can have hormone changes that affect their energy, motivation, sex drive, physical strength, bone strength, and mood. Personal MD providers will help evaluate your symptoms, perform detailed examinations, review your blood levels, and customize a treatment plan for you. We provide many options for hormone replacement, including bio-identical pellet therapy, injections, creams, and oral medications.
Our providers love helping you look as good as you feel. We offer an array of injectable products such as Botox, Jeuveau, Juvaderm, Volluma, and Vollure.
