The physicians of Capital Health Family Medicine - Trenton will make home visits when appropriate. These services are especially geared to elderly persons and to patients who may need post operative or newborn care in their home.
Capital Health Family Medicine - Trenton offers patients a health evaluation - a wellness visit with the purpose of lowering risks for various diseases in the future.
During a health evaluation, the physician will perform a thorough, comprehensive history that includes your medical and family history. He or she will also obtain information about various personal practices such as eating habits, exercise, and stress management that may effect your risk of disease.
A directed physical exam that is based on information obtained during the history is performed. Often this part of the health evaluation is brief, since it is unusual to find problems in people without symptoms.
The physician discusses your personal risk factor analysis based on the information he or she found. This analysis looks at age, gender, family history, level of physical activity and other factors to paint a picture of the specific risks you may face.
Last, and most important, the patient and physician form a plan that will help modify the behaviors that increase your risk of disease. He or she will discuss any tests that may help with early detection of disease, as well as the necessary follow-up care.
