What is primary care?

What should I expect during an annual wellness physical exam?

Dr. Chirino wants to change the fact that only one in four people get an annual checkup from their doctor. He makes these exams easy, comfortable, and effective. He leverages the US Preventive Services Task Force screening guidelines to check your body for the most common health complications, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • High or low body mass index
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Diabetes

By screening you for these prevalent health conditions, he ensures that any health challenges that do arise are caught early when they’re easiest to treat. He also performs additional screenings based on your personal family history. Those screenings include checking your lungs, breasts, colon, or prostate. 

Dr. Chirino also uses your wellness exam as an opportunity to discuss your diet and lifestyle. He’s available to help you make any necessary changes to lead your healthiest life. 

Can my primary care provider help me treat chronic diseases?

Of course. Whether you’re living with a physical illness like diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, hypothyroidism, or erectile dysfunction or a mental illness like depression or anxiety, Dr. Chirino is available to develop a personalized treatment plan for you. With this plan, you can walk together down the road to your healthiest life with minimal symptoms.

CBD Benefits

CBD is a compound found in cannabis plants. But before you assume it will have any psychoactive effects, it’s important to understand that there are multiple classifications of cannabis plants. Most people are most familiar with cannabis, which contains THC, the ingredient that gives you a “high” sensation. But CBD is most often derived from hemp, the classification of cannabis that’s used to make clothing and as a food ingredient. And it’s legal in all 50 states.

CBD is touted for its medical benefits because of its anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties. By combating both inflammation and anxiety at the same time, it delivers calming, restorative treatment throughout your body. 

The minimization of inflammation makes CBD effective in treating a wide range of conditions that cause bodily pain, including rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. 

In short, CBD is an excellent treatment for people who want relief from what’s ailing them without having to turn to prescription drugs.
