At-home preventive care aims to prevent disease and illness and optimize overall long-term health outcomes through regular care and collaboration with your healthcare provider.
What is Preventative Care?
Preventive care consists of several points of focus which, when combined, contribute to healthful living and full-body wellness.
Concierge MD makes your long-term health management easy. We bring your appointments to you wherever you are in Los Angeles, fitting into your life and your routine both through bringing appointments to your door and addressing questions and concerns regularly through telemedicine phone calls or video conferences. The comprehensive suite of services, combined with the direct-to-you convenience of at-home appointments, helps ensure that you meet your health goals.
Preventive health includes:
- Regular checkups and annual physicals
- Telemedicine checkups
- Lab tests
- Nutrition and healthy eating
- Exercise and weight management
- Immunizations and vaccines
- Travel immunizations and vaccines (if you are traveling overseas)
By taking these steps to optimize your health now, you can help reduce your risk factors for many health conditions later in life.
Regular Checkups and Annual Physicals
Regular checkups are an ideal way to help you be proactive when it comes to adjusting to changes in your health over time. Our medical team gets to know you and your personal needs to help build a health care plan tailored to your specific needs.
Checkups typically happen every one to three years. People over the age of 40 are recommended to have checkups annually. Checkup appointments measure stats such as:
- Blood pressure
- Nervous system
- Bones, joints, and muscles
- Reproductive organs
Regular checkups can detect changes in your cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, and any preexisting conditions you may have. Checkups enable your doctor to keep track of your health over time, updating your medical chart with any lifestyle changes, illnesses, injuries, or other changes to your health. This long-term record helps your doctor detect problems early before they become long-term issues, as you will be able to make changes quickly.
In general, checkups take less than an hour, which can make justifying a long wait at a clinic a challenge, especially when you’re busy with work, family, school, or a combination of these.
With house call checkups, your doctor comes to you wherever you are in Los Angeles to perform your physical exam, including your home, office, hotel, dorm, or even the gym. You don’t have to devote half a day to a fast but essential part of your preventive care routine. House call checkups are a convenient way to ensure that you’re in the know about your health – on your time and your schedule.
Telemedicine is a convenient way to address any questions you may have between appointments. Our staff is always on-call to answer any concerns you may have.
Telemedicine can address questions such as:
- Nutrition advice
- Detox recommendations
- Smoking cessation advice
- Inquiries about prescribed medication
- Inquiries about treatment plans
- Inquiries about health conditions
- Remote monitoring of certain conditions
- Making adjustments to lifestyle changes and/or what is or is not working with your tailored health plan
We want to make sure you are always informed about your health so you can make the best decisions for you and your family. We provide you with on-demand care no matter the time of day.
The internet is full of conflicting information about the perfect nutrition plan. This is largely because every individual’s nutrition needs are different. Concierge MD consults with you, reviews your medical history and lifestyle, and takes personal preferences into consideration as we build your ideal health plan.
Lab tests such as Micronutrient testing, Gut Microbiome Testing, and Food Sensitivity Testing can pinpoint areas of improvement and help build a full-body picture of your specific dietary needs.
We can not only recommend a tailored nutrition plan, we can supplement your vitamin and mineral intake with IV treatments to ensure that your body is getting all the nutrients it needs to function at its best.
Exercise and Weight Management
Exercise and weight management are significant aspects of preventive health. Keeping your body active and your weight in check can help prevent a wide range of conditions from cholesterol to high blood pressure and more.
As your house call primary care provider, Concierge MD can recommend exercise routines specific to you. Best of all, because we can monitor your health remotely, we can make adjustments to your plan throughout the year as needed to ensure that you’re always in-the-know about what’s best for your health.
Immunizations and Vaccines
Immunizations and vaccines are a fast and effective way to help prevent you from getting sick from many kinds of ailments. Whether you need a flu shot, a vaccine for your child, or an immunization for overseas travel, we can deliver shots directly to you wherever you are in Los Angeles.
