High-quality primary care is essential no matter what age you are. But as you get older, it’s even more important to have a qualified primary care physician who you can trust. Primary Care, the first step to leading a happier healthier life.
At Galilee Medical Center we do so much more than just prescribe medication. Our primary physicians work with patients to create a roadmap for care. We do this by discussing what we want to accomplish together over the next year. We listen to you and your history, and plan out your health journey together. This is important because it allows us to determine if we need to stay the course, or if we need to adjust things. We also use this time to talk about preventative measures such as: immunizations, mammograms, colonoscopies, and hemoglobin A1C, to help us identify certain conditions early on. All of this helps us in determining our plan of action.
Wellness and Prevention are keys to better health.
Prevention is at the heart of everything we do. Making sure you have the information and tools needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle is important as you age. That’s why we preach wellness and strive to motivate our patients toward preventative measures. Learn about some preventative senior healthcare measures you can take as you age.
Specialty care we help to coordinate.
There might be circumstances when we need to send patients out to specialists that aren’t in our centers. When this happens, we work closely with the patient and the outside specialist to ensure the patient needs’ and concerns are being met.
