Prevention Is Key
One of the most important things you can do for your health is to have regular visits with your primary care doctor. Not only will your physician address current health concerns, but your appointment is also a great opportunity to ask questions about your health. You can also receive recommendations for appropriate exams and screenings – depending on your age, gender, health history, and other risk factors for disease.
The centerpiece of an excellent primary care practice is the annual physical exam. At Starling Diagnostics, our board-certified internal medicine physician will thoroughly review your medical history, as well as ask about your lifestyle and health habits.
The physical exam typically involves checking your vital signs (blood pressure, heart rate, breathing rate, and body temperature). We will also assess the proper functioning of your hearing and bodily reflexes, and we will check for any sensitive or painful areas around the head, neck, and abdomen. Additional medical assessments will depend on any health concerns you have or signs or symptoms you may be experiencing.
Screening and Diagnostic Tests
Your primary care physician may also request your permission for a urine sample and blood sample to look for possible infections or diseases. The doctor can determine what types of additional screenings or diagnostic testing you may need if necessary. This can include specific screenings, such as:
- Breast exam
- Pelvic exam
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Pap smear
- Prostate exam
- Pulmonary function (lung) exam
As always, we offer on-site, top-of-the-line diagnostic radiology services for our patients who need an X-ray, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, and more. Patients and providers alike know and trust us here in the Bronx, because we are experts in the field of diagnostic imaging and radiology. We provide crisp, clear scans that are interpreted by our medical professionals who are known for their diagnostic accuracy and thoroughness.
Managing Chronic Conditions
If you have a chronic health condition – such as high blood pressure, heart disease, or diabetes – managing the condition is critical to your well-being, long-term health, and overall quality of life.
Managing chronic conditions means regularly seeing your primary care physician for a checkup. The doctor can monitor your condition, ensure that your medications continue to work effectively for you, and provide resources and advice for self-care and health maintenance.
When done properly, managing a chronic health condition can help you lead an active, healthy life without having to worry about repeated bouts of out-of-control signs or symptoms.
