We are no stranger to managing chronic disease at Family Practice Center, PC. Central Pennsylvania residents are affected by many chronic disease processes and illnesses as well as injuries, chronic pain, and acute illness. We are here to help you in every way possible. Our approach is to provide ongoing treatment and monitoring of disease processes. We can also provide emotional support and patient education in order to be prepared for flare-ups and changes in your condition that are beyond your control.
One way that our primary care physicians manage disease is to show patients how to help manage their condition by practicing better self-care. Taking care of yourself is vitally important to your overall well-being, especially when you’re sick.
We can suggest ways to improve your nutrition, emotional health, sleep quality, and relationships for a better quality of life. Also, we can bring you the latest advancements for minimizing disease symptoms and managing your conditions in a healthy way.
Some of the most common diseases we see and manage include:
- High Cholesterol
- Heart Disease
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- And many others
Better outcomes for chronic disease management occur when a patient and doctor become partners in health. At Family Practice Center, PC, our physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are excellent at what they do; and they genuinely love seeing their patients achieve a higher quality of life.
While a patient with a chronic disease knows there may be no cure in their lifetime, we encourage patients to find ways to live full and happy lives by optimizing their disease management. With a healthy patient-doctor relationship, you can work together toward a goal of minimizing the impact the disease has on your life.
