Adult Medicine Q & A

What is adult medicine?

Adult medicine is a focused practice that provides comprehensive health care generally to people ages 20 and older. The goal is to preserve your existing health and prevent chronic disease. Diagnosis and treatment of acute issues, such as the flu or a rash, are also provided.

Regular primary care helps you stay up to date on important health screenings such as breast or prostate exams and colonoscopies. The staff works with you to prevent chronic disease and manage it should you develop one.

What are wellness exams?

Adults benefit from yearly wellness exams that allow the team to catch signs of problems in their earliest stages. At a wellness exam, your doctor assesses your overall health, checks for any health changes, and evaluates your risk of chronic disease.

Depending on your age, symptoms, lifestyle, and health history, you may undergo screenings for high blood sugar, high cholesterol, and some cancers.

A wellness exam is also an opportunity to discuss any concerns you have about your health. If you have issues about weight loss, diet, exercise, or other lifestyle concerns, this is a good time to ask.

What chronic conditions can be managed with adult medicine?

Chronic conditions are those that need regular monitoring to maintain your health and ensure the condition isn’t putting you at risk of serious complications. The team at Northeast Medical, PC manages:

  • Diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Heart disease
