We want you to achieve your optimal health. Prevention is key! We are your advocate to reach your best health, through services such as counseling, coaching, nutritional advice, goal setting, immunizations, contraception, and physicals. We provide wellness visits such as physicals that don't just touch the surface, but get to the bigger picture. We address problems like smoking, drinking a little too much, along with stress reduction, exercise, and specific diet plans.

Immunizations and Travel

Immunizations help protect against many diseases that used to be much more common. Examples include tetanus, diphtheria, mumps, measles, pertussis (whooping cough), meningitis, and polio. Many of these infections can cause serious or life-threatening illnesses and may lead to life-long health problems.

We also provide counseling on immunizations and prevention of diseases (like malaria) during international travel.

Genetic Screening

Deonne has advanced training in genetic screening. If you have a family history of breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, or other cancers, talk to us about which genetic tests might be appropriate for you. We can test for more than 30 genes, which if found to be present, have a standard protocal for reducing your risk.

Physicals

Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they start. They also can help find problems early, when your chances for treatment and cure are better. Which exams and screenings you need depends on your age, health and family history, and lifestyle choices such as what you eat, how active you are, and whether you smoke. To make the most of your next check-up, here are some things to do before you go:

  • Review your family medical history
  • Find out if you are due for any general screenings or vaccinations
  • Write down a list of issues and questions to take with you. We will set up a separate for follow-up regarding any chronic or acute conditions that you have.
