OUR PHYSICIAN

TURNERCARE TREATS

Tiredness

General overall feeling of tiredness and/or a lack of energy. Other words that are sometimes used in place of tiredness include fatigue, exhaustion, weariness, and lethargy.

Chest Pain

Chest pain comes in many varieties, ranging from a sharp stab to a dull ache

  • Pressure, fullness or tightness in your chest
  • Crushing or searing pain that radiates to your back, neck, jaw, shoulders and arms — particularly your left arm
  • Pain that lasts more than a few minutes, gets worse with activity, goes away and comes back or varies in intensity

Shortness of Breath

Often described as an intense tightening in the chest or feeling of suffocation. Depending on the cause, you may experience shortness of breath just once or have recurring episodes that could become constant.

Stomach Problems

Abdominal pain, stomach cramping or pain, nausea, stomach burning

Headaches

Pain in any region of the head. Headaches may occur on one or both sides of the head, be isolated to a certain location, radiate across the head from one point, or have a vise-like quality. A headache may be a sharp pain, throbbing sensation or dull ache. Headaches may appear gradually or suddenly, and they may last less than an hour or for several days.

Anxiety

Feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease; excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behavior or panic attacks.

Obesity

At it’s most basic, the word “obesity” is a way to describe having too much body fat.  Being extremely obese means you are especially likely to have health issues related to your weight.  It increases your risk of health problems and diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure, or hypertension,  is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.

You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.

High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it.

Diabetes

Diabetes refers to a group of diseases that affect how your body uses blood sugar (glucose).  If you have diabetes, no matter what type, it means you have too much glucose in your blood, although the causes may differ. Too much glucose can lead to serious health problems.

Chronic diabetes conditions include type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

High Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy substance that’s found in the fats  in your blood. While your body needs cholesterol to continue building healthy cells, having high cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease.

When you have high cholesterol, you may develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. Eventually, these deposits make it difficult for enough blood to flow through your arteries. Your heart may not get as much oxygen-rich blood as it needs, which increases the risk of a heart attack. Decreased blood flow to your brain can cause a stroke.

High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia) can be inherited, but it’s often the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices, and thus preventable and treatable. A healthy diet, regular exercise and sometimes medication can go a long way toward reducing high cholesterol.

Sinus Issues

Sinus headache, facial tenderness, pressure or pain in the sinuses, in the ears and teeth, fever, cloudy discolored nasal or postnasal drainage,
feeling of nasal stuffiness, sore throat, cough, and occasionally facial swelling.

Symptoms of a bacterial sinus infection include facial pain, pus-like nasal discharge, and symptoms that persist for longer than a week and that are not responding to over-the-counter (OTC) nasal medications.

Depression

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living.

More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn’t a weakness and you can’t simply “snap out” of it. Depression may require long-term treatment. But don’t get discouraged. Most people with depression feel better with medication, psychological counseling or both.

Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.

Asthma can’t be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often changes over time, it’s important that you work with your doctor to track your signs and symptoms and adjust treatment as needed.

Medical Counseling

TurnerCare can provide advice and guidance to a patient or his or her family, a therapeutic technique that helps the patient recognize and manage stress and that facilitates interpersonal relationships between the patient and the family, significant others, or the health care team.

By focusing on the needs, problems, or feelings of the patient and significant others, coping, problem-solving, and interpersonal relationships can be enhanced.
