Chronic Medical Conditions Q & A
What are chronic medical conditions?
A chronic medical condition generally refers to any health issue that lasts longer than three months, but can also mean a health condition that doesn’t go away. Some of the chronic medical conditions managed at Ross Medical Group include:
Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes your blood sugar to be higher than normal. Without proper treatment, diabetes can increase your risk of other health conditions, such as heart disease, peripheral neuropathy, or kidney disease.
High cholesterol is a condition in which your total and LDL, or bad, cholesterol is higher than normal. Having high cholesterol increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
High blood pressure
High blood pressure occurs when the force of the blood against your blood vessel walls is greater than normal. Over time, the excess force may damage your blood vessels or other organs, and lead to heart or kidney disease.
Your thyroid produces various hormones that regulate many body functions, including your metabolism and heartbeat. If your thyroid produces too many or not enough of these hormones, you may experience health problems.
While chronic medical conditions are long-term health concerns, you can live a healthy and full life with the right medical management.
What can I expect when receiving care for my medical condition?
The experienced team at Ross Medical Group provide compassionate and attentive care to not only help you manage your chronic medical condition but your general health as well. In order to help you manage your chronic medical condition, your specialist may have you come to the office regularly to monitor medication and labs, and see how you’re doing.
The medical team at Ross Medical Group also offers continuity of care with in-hospital medicine and are on staff at Baptist Hospital of Miami, South Miami Hospital, and Doctors Hospital.
What if I need a special test?
Ross Medical Group is a full-service medical clinic and offers many on-site tests to assess your health, including cardiac ultrasounds, electrocardiogram, spirometry, and phlebotomy.
Ross Medical Group also tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). If you test positive for an STD, your specialist can provide treatment to manage the condition, whether it’s an antibiotic to clear up a bacterial infection or regular Pap smears for women who test positive for human papillomavirus (HPV). If you have an STD that doesn’t have a cure, the team can provide the medications to help that too.
