Chronic Disease Management

Why do I need chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is an integrated part of your health care plan that involves coordinating checkups and screenings, receiving personalized chronic disease education, and learning lifestyle changes you can make to restore your health. 

Your doctor may recommend chronic disease management if you have one or more of the following conditions:

  • Cancer 
  • Asthma 
  • Anemia 
  • Osteoporosis 
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Anxiety or depression 
  • Cataracts or glaucoma
  • Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis 

Your entire chronic disease management plan is entirely customized, based on your health, your specific symptoms, and your projected outcome. 

What happens during chronic disease management?

The compassionate team at Primary Care Walk - In Medical Clinic is dedicated to helping you live your best life and improve your health, no matter how serious your chronic conditions may be. 

During your chronic disease management evaluation, you sit and have a one-on-one conversation with your doctor about your health. Throughout your chronic disease management plan, you meet with your doctor regularly, possibly monthly or once a quarter. At any time, your dedicated physician can:
