Prevention, Diagnosis & Treatment
At East Paris Internal Medicine Associates, our highly experienced physicians have totally dedicated their practice to the health of adults. Medical services include treatment of routine acute problems, preventive care and management of complex medical issues, including referrals to medical specialists for conditions that require specialty care. All of the physicians of East Paris Internal Medicine Associates are committed to being your trusted source for primary health care. As primary care physicians, we work with you to treat current health issues and manage your preventive health plan - detecting and eliminating problems before they occur.
Our primary care physicians are internal medicine trained, bringing that unique view to your general health. Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases (in people 18 years of age and older.) Some of the common diseases we treat include hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, gastroesophageal reflux disease and many others. Our physicians are experts in the management of patients who have multiple chronic illnesses. They deal with complex medical issues by coordinating symptoms, signs, diagnostic testing and medication to ensure your health, safety and well-being.
We also offer robust care management services designed to help patients and their support system manage medical conditions and related problems more effectively. The goal is to improve patient health status and reduce the need for expensive medical services. Think of it as your own private assistant to help you navigate the complex healthcare system and keep your physicians involved in what's going on between office visits. Our goal is to remove barriers to care and improve understanding and collaboration with the entire healthcare team.
Convenient On-Site Laboratory and Radiology Services
Our phlebotomy services are performed by an experienced phlebotomist. We are committed to providing professional and compassionate care that extends to making every effort to perform quick and comfortable blood draws.
Our office has a convenient on-site COLA certified laboratory. The East Paris Internal Medicine laboratory is certified under the Commission of Office Laboratory Accreditation (COLA). These regulations set standards for personnel, records, quality control and quality assurance. Having the laboratory on-site provides convenience for patients and allows the availability of rapid test results when necessary for patient diagnosis and treatment.
We have on-site x-ray capabilities that provide convenience for patients needing x-rays. All x-rays are electronically sent to a board-certified radiologist for formal interpretation, with availability for readings the same day if needed.
Bone Density Services (DEXA)
A bone density (DEXA) is a simple, painless and non-invasive test that uses a low dose x-ray to measure bone mineral density. This test helps your physician evaluate your bone health and determine if osteopenia or osteoporosis is present.
