Does primary care prevent and manage chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases develop over many years. As the disease progresses, you have a window of opportunity — a period of time in which you can take steps to stop the full-blown disease from developing.

Primary care providers use regular check-ups like annual physicals to screen your risks for disease and find signs of problems at an early stage, while the disease is still preventable.

Then they create a treatment plan to support your health. Following a healthy diet, exercising, and losing weight can often stop chronic disease progression. Your provider may also prescribe medications when needed.

After a chronic disease takes hold, it isn’t curable. Instead, your primary care provider develops a long-term management plan to slow down or prevent the disease from progressing to an advanced stage.

Can primary care monitor my heart health?

HealthStone Primary Care Partners specializes in preventing heart disease. The team regularly screens for issues that raise your risk of developing heart disease, including:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Lack of exercise

If you’re at risk for heart disease or you have worrisome symptoms, your provider performs an in-office electrocardiogram (EKG) to quickly evaluate your heart health.

Call the office or book an appointment online today, whether you’re a new patient looking for a medical home or an existing patient needing an annual physical or help for a health concern.
