Acute and chronic health conditions we treat
Our internists treat a wide variety of both acute and chronic health conditions. "Acute" conditions are ones that come on suddenly, generally have distinct symptoms and go away once treated properly. A "chronic" condition is caused by an unhealthy lifestyle or genetics, develops slowly, gets worse over time and is best managed with a treatment plan developed in partnership with a physician.
Some of the conditions we treat include:
- Chronic sinusitis
- Cold and flu
- Common heart conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol
- Low-grade behavioral health issues, such as anxiety and depression
- Minor injuries
- Osteoarthritis and osteoporosis
- Otitis media (middle ear infection)
- Seasonal allergies
- Skin conditions
