Diagnostic testing is a type of medical procedure used to diagnose or monitor conditions and diseases. There are many different types of diagnostic tests that can be performed, and your symptoms and your doctor’s knowledge will help determine which ones are necessary. Some are simple, and non-invasive while others may be more complicated.
One example of a diagnostic test is a blood test. Your doctor can learn a lot about your health based upon the results of such a test. On the other hand, X-rays can help your doctor figure out if you have broken a bone and need to have it set. Similar to x-rays, CT and MRI scans allow the doctor to see more detail. Some tests that are more complex include colonoscopy, endoscopy, and amniocentesis. All tests are intended to help a doctor determine if any treatments are necessary.
Wade Family Medicine is proud to offer LDS Mission Physicals for those who are preparing for their missions. This service includes a physical examination, vision screening, hemoglobin testing, and urine analysis. We recommend that patients bring blood type documentation and childhood immunization records to their appointment to facilitate the completion of their physical. The following vaccinations are also provided in the LDS Mission Physical: Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Polio, Hepatitis A and B. Additional testing provided includes TB (tuberculosis) testing, and blood type and Rh factor testing. If the patient has been exposed to tuberculosis and their TB test is positive, it is highly recommended that they begin preventative medication prior to submitting their mission application.
Please remember to bring all necessary forms from the missionary application packet to help our physicians to better assist you.
An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in the care of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Prenatal care concentrates on keeping both the woman and baby safe and healthy. Complete exams during pregnancy are important to educate the woman on how to eat, what vitamins to take, and how to stay healthy. Many screenings can be done to assess the health of the unborn baby.
The obstetrician is the doctor in the delivery room when it’s time for the baby to be born. She helps the mother through childbirth. If there should be any complications during the birthing process, the obstetrician is trained to act and take care of the patients. The obstetrician also takes care of the new mother for several weeks after the birth. This postpartum care is important because to assure the new mother’s health.
Our highly skilled obstetricians can get your pregnancy off to a healthy start. Our prenatal team provides comprehensive prenatal care to include tips on nutrition and exercise as well as advanced diagnostics.
The team will monitor mother and baby to ensure both are healthy. Prenatal care encompasses low-risk pregnancies as well as high-risk pregnancies. High-risk pregnancies are those that involve gestational diabetes, hypertension, preeclampsia, cervical incompetence and pre-term labor. Routine testing provides essential details pertaining to the mother’s and baby’s health. Some of the tests we encourage are hCG to diagnose pregnancy, alpha-fetoprotein screening which detects fetal neural tube defects, ultrasound to detect abnormalities in the fetus, and glucose screening to check for gestational diabetes. Women who are over the age of 35 are encouraged to have an amniocentesis performed or Chorionic Villus Sampling to detect defects in the baby.
Immunizations, sometimes called vaccines, are essential for keeping people healthy. While they may hurt just a bit at first, contracting the diseases they prevent would be much worse. In many cases, vaccines even prevent diseases which could be fatal.
Immunizations work because the immune system produces substances that fight germs. Once they have fought their specific germ, the immune system remembers it and can fight it again. Since immunizations contain killed or weakened germs, the immune system will be able to fight off the real germs should they be encountered.
It is important that immunizations are given on the proper schedule because every dose protects against disease threats. Many of the diseases are especially dangerous for infants and young children, making it of utmost importance to stick to the schedule for the best protection.
Chronic Disease Management
Chronic disease management is an integrated approach keeping illness under control. It can include techniques for prevention, such as screenings, check-ups and monitoring. It can also include coordinating treatment and patient education.
Of course, prevention of chronic diseases is our number one goal. When this is not possible, our physicians are eager to help you control symptoms and avoid illnesses. Since many people have at least one chronic disease, like diabetes or asthma, it is important for doctors to provide the appropriate care. Through routine check-ups as well as patient education, we can help you to reduce pain and other illness symptoms. We can also teach you to eat the right way and integrate healthy lifestyle changes. When necessary, we can help you work with specialists to get the adequate care you need and deserve.
Physicals are necessary check-ups you get when you are feeling well. They are important because they help you determine if you are as healthy as you think you are. Yearly physicals can catch and deal with problems before they become severe.
Each yearly physical will consist of several parts. First, medical history should be reviewed, so your doctor can determine your risks. Lifestyle choices can also be discussed including nutrition, fitness, smoking, and more. The doctor will then examine many different parts of your body. Next, medical tests such as blood tests, can be done to help assess your overall health. Screenings and vaccinations are important to avoid many preventable diseases. Be prepared with any questions you may have about your health because this is a good time to ask. Most importantly, be honest with your doctor, your partner in health.
A gynecologist is a doctor who specializes in women’s reproductive health. It is important for women and girls to see a gynecologist regularly because these doctors can help you to stay healthy. They can screen for cancers, treat infections, and perform necessary surgery of the pelvic organs. They also help women find the appropriate birth control and deal with issues surrounding menopause.
At each annual visit, you can expect a weight and blood pressure check along with questions about your reproductive health. A pelvic exam will be completed with Pap test and possibly tests for STDs. Additionally, a manual breast exam should be completed.
The doctor will likely ask about your period and any issues you have as well as sex and your sexual partners. The discussion may also information about birth control and what is right for you.
Child Birth is an exciting time at the end of a pregnancy when the baby is born. Also known as Labor and Delivery, it is important to have a doctor you trust on your team. Similarly important is to make a child birth plan with the doctor, so you are both aware about all situations. Discussions about how you will manage pain and any complications are helpful. You should be aware of the signs of early labor, so you can be prepared.
Child birth is likely to happen in a hospital, and your doctor, or a member of her team, will be on call for the exciting event. While many women are able to have normal vaginal births, it is also important to understand that sometimes it is necessary to deliver via Cesarean section. Communication with your doctor is essential.
Pediatrics is the medical specialty dealing with children and their diseases. Pediatricians have three years of further training after medical school to help them gain the skills and experience necessary for working with children. It is important to find a pediatrician who has a convenient location and hours to suit your schedule. Board certification is also important to consider. Finally, interview the doctor to ascertain your views on hot issues are a match.
Your child’s pediatrician will likely see him at least six times before he turns two years old and then yearly thereafter. These visits track growth and development and make sure your child receives all the needed immunizations. In addition, you may have to make a “sick visit” when your child is not feeling well. Pediatricians can also help manage chronic illnesses of children including asthma, diabetes, or others.
Well-Child Check Ups
Well-child checkups are important for growing children. Each well-child checkup should include a complete physical exam. Doctors will record the child’s height and weight on a chart to assure that your child is growing as they should. In addition, the doctor will go over developmental milestones that young children are achieving to make sure they are on track. When children do fall behind, these well-child visits will catch it early so that necessary intervention can be secured.
In addition to physical growth and development, social and emotional health can also be discussed. Parents can get advice about behavior issues. Plus, any problems with social stresses or depression and anxiety can be reviewed. Doctors also help parents, especially new parents, to be sure that all safety, developmental, nutritional, and fitness goals are being met.
