Choose Us As Your Primary Care Provider

Are you tired of being a number on a chart or shuffled in and out of an office visit in 10 minutes? Unfortunately, that’s the reality of most medical offices these days. Between an overly clinical environment, long wait times, and short conversations, how can we expect that this system will help us get healthy and stay healthy? What we offer at North Laurel is different. We’re bringing back a more patient-focused approach to primary care. We combine top of the line medical care with education, choices, and most importantly, a clear path forward.

Building A Foundation For Health

What’s missing today in most approaches to healthcare is a strong focus on building foundations. Just like you can’t build a sound house on a shoddy foundation, you can’t build good health on poor habits or quick-fixes. Many patients come to us completely lost because they haven’t received the education they should have from other medical providers. Our goal is to empower you to take control of your health with the information you need to make better choices. We’ll first tackle the basics – education about movement, diet, and lifestyle factors like sleep and stress. Then, we build from there as we get closer and closer to your goals.

Comprehensive Primary Care Services

We offer a wide range of primary care services to diagnose, treat, and help you stay healthy. These include:

  • Exams and labs
  • Sick visits
  • Management of chronic illness
  • Injury evaluations
  • Testing like ECGs, Xrays, and Spirometry

For anything we can’t handle in office, we’ll refer you to a trusted partner/specialist. Rest assured, you won’t be compromising anything about your care by leaving a large hospital-based practice.

When you choose us as your primary care provider, you can count on us to hear your concerns and take them seriously. We’ll meet you where you are and help you improve your health with a solid foundation and state of the art medical care. If you’re ready to make the switch, schedule a consultation with us to find out more.

Reach A Healthy Weight With Our Medically Supervised Program

One of the most common issues we hear from patients is that they struggle to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Many of them have tried countless diets, exercise programs, and may have even lost weight only to gain it back. We know how frustrating it is to be in this situation, especially when it seems to be so easy for others. For those struggling, a medically supervised program can be very effective. We offer a tailored approach that can help you finally have the results you’ve always wanted.

Why Is It So Hard For Me To Stay At A Healthy Weight?

All bodies are different, and there are a variety of factors involved in metabolism and body composition. In many cases, we simply don’t have a straightforward answer as to why some people seem to effortlessly maintain weight and others have to try so hard. What we do know is that a supportive approach is highly effective in changing habits and making lasting lifestyle improvements. With our medically supervised program, you’ll get one on one support, coaching, and medical care to help you reach your goals.

What Is A Weight Management Program?

As anyone who has struggled with their weight knows, achieving sustainable weight loss goes beyond just dieting or exercise regimens. What we offer is a long-term lifestyle approach to slow and steady weight loss while focusing on building and preserving muscle (lean) mass. Because we are a primary care provider as well, our focus isn’t just on the number on the scale. Rather, we prioritize improving your overall health. Seeing improvements in your blood pressure or your cholesterol is highly motivating and can help keep you on track. This personalized approach ensures safety, efficacy, and long-term success.

Regain Your Zest For Life With Hormone Therapy

If you’re not feeling quite like yourself lately and you’re struggling to pinpoint why, it could be the result of fluctuating hormones. As women approach their late 30s and early 40s, the rollercoaster that is perimenopause begins. Most women don’t know that these symptoms can start 10-15 years before menopause (on average, age 51), and their seemingly unrelated symptoms go undiagnosed. Fortunately, at North Laurel Family Medicine, we are equipped to diagnose and treat hormonal issues with individualized hormone therapy.

Want Younger Looking Skin? Try Opus Plasma

Once you hit your 30s, you might start to notice that your skin just doesn’t have the same youthful appearance as it did in your 20s. Typically this is the time when the signs of aging creep in – fine lines, skin texture changes, and loss of elasticity. This is largely due to the slowdown of collagen and elastin production (which actually begins in your mid-twenties). By the time you’re 40, some of those fine lines may have turned into deeper wrinkles. So, is all hope for younger looking skin lost? Absolutely not! With Opus Plasma technology, we can rejuvenate the skin and turn back the clock on your appearance.
