We strive to create individualized treatment plans for each of our patients as each person has a unique history and unique needs. Some of our services include:
Preventative Care Services
Here at Lumina Family Care we believe in the importance of preventative care and having routine screenings to maintain your overall good health. Early detection can be the key to treating women’s cancers and increasing the chances of a full recovery. Our practice offers various cancer screening options so that you can ensure your optimal health.
Breast Cancer Screenings
Clinical breast exams are conducted during each exam to search for any changes in your breasts or unusual lumps. We will ask about your family history and if any members have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Annual mammograms begin at the recommended age of 40.
It is important that you conduct self-breast exams at home so that you can notice any changes in your breast between visits.
Cervical Cancer Screenings
Pap smears are important for finding any changes in your cervical cells. These tests begin at the age of 21. The HPV test can also be conducted at this time since the HPV virus can lead to cervical cancer. Even if you have been vaccinated against HPV, it is still important that you follow the screening recommendations for your age group.
Colorectal Cancer Screenings
The screening for colon cancer typically begins at the age of 45, unless otherwise recommended by your doctor. This is accomplished by analyzing a stool sample or by examining the colon and rectum (colonoscopy).
Endometrial Cancer Screenings
During menopause, women should report any unexpected vaginal changes such as bleeding or spotting. There are many causes of postmenopausal bleeding that can be benign such as uterine polyps or fibroids. However, uterine cancer, or endometrial cancer, can also cause abnormal changes during menopause. If you notice any changes, please report them to your doctor so that a biopsy can be conducted to determine whether there is a concern for cancer.
Immunizations are an essential part of preventive healthcare, and getting vaccinated not only protects your health but also helps to prevent the spread of infectious diseases in your community. Talk to your healthcare provider to determine which immunizations are right for you and when you should receive them. Remember, preventing disease is always easier and less expensive than treating it
Regular health checkups are an important part of maintaining good health and preventing potential health problems. Routine checkups give your healthcare provider the opportunity to identify any health concerns early on, when they are most treatable. These checkups can also help you stay on top of preventive measures, such as vaccinations and health screenings.
Health Risk Assessments
Health risk assessments (HRAs) are a valuable tool for individuals to understand their health risks and take steps to improve their health. HRAs are typically questionnaires that ask about a person’s lifestyle, medical history, family history, and other factors that can contribute to their health risks.
By completing an HRA, individuals can gain a better understanding of their health risks and receive personalized recommendations for improving their health. HRAs can help identify risk factors for chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. They can also provide information about nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other lifestyle factors that can impact a person’s health.
A physical examination is a routine medical appointment where your healthcare provider checks your overall health status. The exam can help detect health problems early when they are more treatable, and it can also help prevent future health issues by identifying risk factors and making recommendations to improve your health.
Acute and Chronic Care
Acute Care encompasses treatment of illnesses and disorders in a relatively short amount of time.
Chronic Care describes the long-term monitoring and treatment of ongoing diseases or disorders, such as cerebral palsy, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, high blood pressure, Alzheimer disease, rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease.request an appointment
