Areas of Practice
We provide treatment and advice to keep our patients healthy and free from disease, offering a better understanding of what it takes to stay healthy. This includes educating our patients about diet and exercise and explaining the benefits of preventative care like annual physical exams and vaccinations. We are a team of medical professionals committed to preserving and protecting the health of our patients by offering the best care we can.
Here is a list of some of our services:
Adult Primary Care
Our clinic has been serving the local area for over 40 years, providing top-quality medical treatment to our patients. Our goal is to give every patient who comes into our office personalized and high-quality treatments, administered by friendly and helpful doctors and staff. We have the skills to address typical problems like the flu or sinus infections, back pain, and other common ailments. But we also offer treatment for more serious and long-term problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and arthritis.
We have on-sight testing, including labs, X-ray, stress testing, echocardiograms, ultrasounds, heart rhythm monitoring, pulmonary functions, audiology, and bone density measurement.We ensure our patients are fully evaluated and protected against illness and disease. In-house testing expedites this process.
Regular physical exams are important to managing health and preventing disease. They identify potential medical problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and prediabetes. Thus an annual medical examination is a mainstay of our care. Known medical conditions are often evaluated during the same visit.
Diet and Exercise
At Medical Specialists Associated, our physicians and registered dietitian are experienced in coaching patients to lose weight and, more importantly, keep it off. We emphasize the importance of learning and developing healthy lifestyle habits. Some patients may additionally benefit from medication.
Medical Specialists Associated provides routine gynecological exams, including Pap smears. We also provide breast exams, birth control consultation, and bone density scans. Mammography recommendations are typically reviewed during your annual exam.
Medical Specialists Associated advocates strongly for routine immunizations as a preventative measure against disease. A yearly flu shot is highly recommended. Besides the flu shot, we provide vaccination for many other preventable diseases, including cervical cancer, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, pneumonia, meningitis, and shingles.
Chronic Disease Management
Our physicians and staff are experts at treating and managing chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, emphysema, asthma, and arthritis. We appropriately consult and refer our patients to the best subspecialists. Close supervision can minimize the need for Emergency Department and hospital visits for our patients and maximize the quality of their lives.
The staff at Medical Specialists Associated are experts in performing preoperative exams, even in urgent situations. With in-house testing, we can promptly furnish results to the requesting surgeon.
We request patients to arrive on time for appointments. If for whatever reason a patient is unable to attend an appointment, he or she must cancel the appointment 24 hours in advance. A patient may incur a fee if he or she fails to attend or properly cancel an appointment.
