As specialists in Internal Medicine, PFHP doctors take care of most medical problems seen in adults. Commonly encountered medical problems include hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, hypothyroidism, osteoporosis, irritable bowel syndrome, generalized anxiety disorder, and asthma, amongst others.
We also take care of patients with more unusual illnesses such as Churgg-Strauss Syndrome, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Antiphospholipd Antibody Syndrome, and Crohn’s Disease to name a few.
When you have established medical problems, your doctor will follow your condition(s) closely throughout the year. Routine testing and periodic follow-up visits will be part of the process employed to maintain your conditions(s) under control.
The Team Approach plays an important role in the management of many of of these medical illnesses. In such cases, your doctor will help you choose the specialist(s) to assist with your care. Your doctor will remain in close communication with the specialist(s) and maintain copies of their consultations, test results, and other information important in maintaining the continuity of your care.
