We perform routine annuals to check your overall health. These exams are used to update necessary immunizations, check for possible diseases, identify any issues that may become medical concerns in the future, and ensure that you are maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This appointment can also help you build a relationship with your PCP.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and have been exposed to areas with high risks of COVID infection or people with confirmed COVID-19, we suggest you get yourself tested at our clinic as soon as possible.
Diabetes Prevention & Care
We are here to help you prepare, prevent, and care for these diseases. We work with you to assess lifestyle factors (e.g., diet, exercise, sleep, BMI, blood work, and health history) to determine where you stand and what treatment plan works best for you.
Diabetic Retinopathy Exam
Individuals with diabetes can develop diabetic retinopathy. The vast majority of patients who develop diabetic retinopathy do not show symptoms until the very late stages; therefore, it is essential to get tested as early as possible. The screening is quick and simple and is done right in the office.
If necessary, we provide a small portable heart monitor (EKG) device worn in a pouch around the neck or waist. This monitor keeps a record of the heart rhythm typically over a 24-hour period, and the patient keeps a diary of activities and symptoms. This type of test is useful for identifying heart disturbances that are sporadic and not readily identified with a resting EKG.

Allergy Testing & Immunotherapy
The allergy season seems to never end so we have partnered with Allergy Solutions to provide you with environmental and food tests that give results in 15 minutes (no blood required). Many patients may not know this, but if you have severe environmental allergies, there is a treatment available for you in our office.
We use immunotherapy injections to treat your environmental allergies. Immunotherapy consists of 28 weeks of injections that need to be kept up in a timely manner to achieve the best results. Immunotherapy can help you stay allergy free from 5-7 years.
24-Hour Blood Pressure Monitor
We offer 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, which is a way of measuring and managing hypertension (high blood pressure).
Sleep Apnea Screenings
We do home-based sleep apnea screenings, which reduce your need to visit the hospital.
We perform spirometry tests, which are used to assess how well your lungs work by measuring how much air you inhale or exhale and how quickly you exhale air. Spirometry is used to diagnose asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other conditions that affect breathing.
This test measures the electrical activity of the heart. With each beat, an electrical impulse travels through the heart and causes the muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart. An EKG measures the time intervals, so the doctor can determine how long the electrical wave takes to pass through the heart. This will show whether the electrical activity is normal or slow, fast or irregular. An EKG can help detect arrhythmias, coronary heart disease, heart attacks, and cardiomyopathy.
