One of the best ways to reduce your risk of developing chronic health problems is to get regular preventive care. At Chapel Hill Primary Care, our Graham primary care providers will do everything they can to help you stay healthy. We offer annual physical examinations, Pap smears and pelvic exams, and screening for chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and high cholesterol.
Addressing Risk Factors
If you have risk factors for a chronic disease, come to our Graham primary care clinic to discuss your concerns with a caring medical professional. Many people believe there is nothing they can do to prevent diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, emphysema, or high cholesterol. Although you can’t change your genes, there are several things you can do to reduce your risk of some diseases. We’ll help you address the following risk factors:
- Alcohol use
- High cholesterol
- Unhealthy diet
- Nutrient deficiencies
Acute Care Services
Our primary care providers are available to help you if you have a respiratory infection, urinary tract infection, or other type of critical condition. Acute illnesses typically last a short time, but they still cause pain, discomfort, and other bothersome symptoms. Call to schedule an appointment if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea
- Sinus pain and pressure
- Sore throat
- Persistent cough
- Prolonged fever
- Painful urination
- Abdominal pain
- Skin rash or persistent itching
When you make an appointment, one of our primary care providers will examine you and determine the cause of your symptoms. We help people with pneumonia, sinus infections, bronchitis, bladder infections, kidney infections, gastrointestinal viruses, strep throat, and many other illnesses.
If you have been diagnosed with kidney disease, heart disease, hypertension, or another chronic medical issue, we can help you manage the problem and reduce your risk of complications. Left untreated, these diseases cause serious complications. Persistent high blood pressure, for example, increases your risk for stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, and vision loss. We’ll monitor you by ordering appropriate tests and conducting regular physical exams to ensure your condition is stable. If you take medication for your condition, we’ll make sure you have the refills you need to stay on track. We’ll also adjust your medications as needed.
