We exist to care for our patients health needs. We do this by focusing on your ailments
as well as practicing preventative care. This helps us catch medical problems before
they become a major event in your life.
What is preventative care?
Preventive medicine or preventive care refers to measures taken to prevent diseases,
(or injuries) rather than curing them or treating their symptoms. The term contrasts
in method with curative and palliative medicine, and in scope with public health
methods (which work at the level of population health rather than individual health).
If you think you need emergency care, always call 911.

A stethoscope is a diagnostic instrument used by medical professionals to listen
to a patient's chest cavity, heart and various pulse points. Physicians use a stethoscope
as part of a non-invasive examination procedure. Commonly, doctors will listen for
sounds of congestion in the lungs and irregular heartbeats. Nurses may also use stethoscopes
to listen for restored blood flow during blood pressure checks.
