Let Us Help You Manage Your Chronic Illness

When it comes to chronic illness, we know how important it is to have a good relationship with your healthcare provider. If you don’t feel seen and heard by your current provider, let us give you a different experience. We take the time to get to know each patient – so we’re not asking you the same questions every time we see you. You can feel confident that we can help you manage your chronic illness.

Chronic Illness Should Be Taken Seriously

We have a number of patients who come to us after feeling like their old provider wasn’t taking their concerns seriously. Unfortunately, the current medical model doesn’t allow much time for doctors to really have productive conversations during a visit. You might be in and out in 15 minutes with a prescription that you’re not too sure about taking. What’s more, maybe you have questions about alternative treatments that you’d like to discuss. At North Laurel, you can be sure that your concerns will be taken seriously. Even if you’ve been dealing with an illness for decades, we are always open to re-evaluating treatment options and finding new solutions for you.

Types Of Chronic Conditions We Can Manage

We see patients with a wide variety of health challenges, but some of the most common are:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Hypertension
  • COPD
  • Diabetes
  • Thyroid issues

When you come in for your first visit, we’ll request your previous medical records and get a detailed medical history. From there, we may order new tests to confirm existing or new diagnoses to ensure we are on the right track with treatment. If you’re on medications, we will discuss each one. Is it helping? Are you having side effects? We also coordinate your care with specialists so that visits are seamless – you won’t have to be the go-between in a complicated medical game of telephone. In addition, we believe that diet and lifestyle play an important role in chronic illness. Let’s talk about sleep, stress, nutrition, and movement and figure out a plan to improve these areas.
