“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is one of Benjamin Franklin’s most famous quotes. When it comes to your health, Mr. Franklin was absolutely right.

Care for Acute Injuries and Illnesses
When someone says an illness or injury is “acute,” it means the problem isn’t expected to last very long. Common examples of acute illnesses and injuries are respiratory infections, broken bones, urinary tract infections, sprains and strains, skin rashes, and colds. All of these problems usually go away within a few days or a few weeks. If you have a broken bone or other injury, you may have to wait a few months for it to heal. Our Hillsborough primary care providers evaluate patients and recommend the best treatments for acute illnesses and injuries.
Although good preventive care can help you avoid some serious health problems, it is not always possible to avoid disease completely. You might have a family history of heart disease or an increased risk of respiratory problems due to exposure to pollutants. If you develop a chronic disease, our Hillsborough primary care providers will help you manage the disease and control your symptoms. Following your PCP’s directions could help you prevent serious complications and avoid the need to stay in the hospital. If you have any of the following chronic conditions, ask your primary care provider about the best way to manage them.
- Asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Kidney disease
- High cholesterol
