Procedural medicine is a specialized branch of medicine that involves in-office interventions geared to produce specific and immediate diagnostic or therapeutic outcomes. Our procedures require no general anesthesia, lengthy preps or fasting and are generally done within a 30 minute time frame including any needed recovery time. The protocol for each procedure undertaken ensures a painless experience from beginning to end. We are proud to offer our patients a wide variety of procedural services ranging from joint injections for shoulder and knee osteoarthritis to minor skin surgery and more.
The Family Doctor has a major role in primary prevention. With Preventive Health Consulting, we offer an integrative approach to care and screen for illness before its progression to any sign or symptom of dysfunction. These preclinical conditions are most often detected by a detailed history, a complete physical exam, a lifestyle analysis and appropriate screening tests and imaging. Our wellness program offers individualized alternative treatment and prevention strategies not found in routine medical clinics.
Secondary prevention generally involves preventing disease progression after it is clinically obvious and a diagnosis is established. With tertiary intervention, the rehabilitation of patients with disabling conditions and the work required to bring them back to their highest level of function is a daunting task. Dr. Chavez and his staff offer a complete and focused evaluation with detailed assessments and individualized treatment plans for a quicker recovery.
Whether you are interested in wellness and prevention, have an acute or chronic illness or require procedural services, our goal is always to prevent, maintain and optimize your well-being every step of the way.
