If you’re looking for an office that can meet the health and wellness needs of your entire family, our experts are here and ready to help. At Cyrus Advanced Institute in El Paso, TX, we are proud to offer a branch of medicine called family medicine. When you choose our office to meet your family’s health needs, you will receive exceptional care, and each of your family members will feel heard and cared for.
What Does Family Medicine Deal With?
Family medicine treats the entire family. It eliminates the need to drive to and from different doctors’ offices for different healthcare needs. You will save time and the headache of having to visit multiple offices for your family’s health and wellness needs.
This branch of medicine can help treat and prevent different health conditions. From making a diagnosis to finding you the right specialist, family medicine takes the guesswork out of healthcare and helps meet the needs of each member of your family.
Illness Treatment and Prevention
Everyone gets sick at some point, and when you do, you need somewhere to turn to get the care and diagnosis you need to treat your illness or health condition and get back on the road to optimal health and wellness as soon as possible.
Family doctors can help diagnose, treat, and prevent sickness and other health conditions. Whether you have an acute or chronic illness that you need to treat, we can help prescribe the medication you need and create the right treatment plan.
Regular check-ups are a form of preventative medicine. At our office, we offer check-ups for every age bracket. Whether you have a new baby that needs well-baby visits every few months or an elderly adult who requires regular or frequent physical examinations, we can treat every member of your family and perform different types of physical examinations, including:
- Medical clearance exams
- Pre-operatory exams
- Sports physicals
- School physicals
- Regular medical examinations
- Annual wellness exams
Regular check-ups help us evaluate your current health and assess any changes in your health. For children, it helps us make sure that their growth is on track, growing strong and healthy, and thriving. For adults under and over 30, we can perform the necessary screenings to help ensure optimal health and wellness and take the steps needed to address any concerns before they begin to affect your health in negative ways.
There comes a time in some people’s health journey where a specialist is required to better assist them with specific areas of their health or treat certain conditions. We can refer you to a specialist who can meet your needs and help address your concerns when that time comes.
Complex Health Issues
Family medicine doctors aren’t equipped to handle some areas of health, like mental health. A family doctor can help make suggestions on how to promote optimal mental health, but sometimes you or a member of your family will need something more involved, and in that instance, we can refer you to a specialist we trust.
We will refer you to someone who will help you achieve the best results and improve your mental health. If you need a specialist to help treat a different aspect of your health, we can discuss the steps with you and find a trusted and esteemed doctor who will meet your needs.
A specialist can help with more than just complex issues like mental health. They can help you make the right lifestyle choices and achieve your body goals in a way that we may be unequipped to. When you need a specialist to help you improve your body composition, develop a diet plan for your specific needs, or coach you through different health and wellness-related concerns, it could be overwhelming to try to find the right one.
That’s where we come in. We will take the guesswork out of finding the right registered dietitian, fitness specialist, or health coach. We can also refer you to these specialists at affordable and discounted rates so that not only will you find the right professional to meet your needs, but you’ll save money doing it.
Health and Wellness Screenings
Standard health and wellness screenings are an important part of preventative medicine. Even if you look and feel healthy, health and wellness screenings can help alert you to a potential or unknown issue so that you can take steps to address it before it begins affecting your physical health. Both men and women need regular health and wellness screenings, and when that time comes, you shouldn’t have to call a different office to schedule that appointment.
We offer different health and wellness screenings so that you can enter into familiar territory for your screening. You’ll be surrounded by familiar staff members who know and care about you and your family and will help perform the necessary screenings to ensure that you are and stay as healthy as possible.
Stress, eating the wrong foods, and a lack of exercise all contribute to your health and can negatively affect your body. We can help you take the steps towards a healthier lifestyle. Not only can we evaluate your diet and exercise routine, but we can discuss your stress levels and any unhealthy habits that are inhibiting you from achieving optimal health and wellness.
The saying, “You are what you eat,” couldn’t be more true when it comes to your physical health. Eating a healthy diet is one of the easiest ways to prevent illness and chronic disease. At our office, we can offer dietary support and nutritional counseling for your entire family.
We can teach you what and how to eat to support your health and help you choose the right foods that will not only support your overall health and wellness but help you achieve a healthy body weight so that you can look and feel your best and lower your risk of weight-related health conditions and diseases.
Exercise is another important aspect of your overall health. If you don’t exercise, you can put yourself at risk of weight gain and other health conditions and concerns. Our family doctor can discuss how to get on the right track with an exercise routine that will not only help you maintain a healthy weight but reduce the risk of developing certain diseases.
We will help you make the necessary changes and suggest how to add exercise and fitness to your everyday life. We can help you find activities that you enjoy so that you never dread exercise but instead look forward to it.
If you suffer from any form of chronic pain, you won’t have to find a specialist to help you manage it. Our family doctor can help you deal with chronic pain and suggest different treatment options to help alleviate your pain. We can help you take steps to ease the symptoms of chronic pain and different health conditions so that you can enjoy a full and healthy life.
