Management of Illness
Our office handles both acute and chronic illnesses. Our providers are trained to manage the care of a variety of illnesses including but not limited to:
- Urinary Tract Infections
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Diabetes Mellitus
- Dermatologic Condition
- Hypertension Management
- Cholesterol Screening and Treatment
- Weight Management

- Heart Disease Screening and Treatment
Our providers work closely with many other specialties in the surrounding Southern Maryland region as well as the surrounding Baltimore and D.C. areas, and provide referrals promptly when needed for optimal patient care. As with all primary care offices, our providers are trained in multiple areas of health care management including acute injuries and pain. However, it is our philosophy that pain is the symptom of a problem. Our providers work to fix the problem while managing the symptom of pain, but they do not treat chronic pain long-term. The office refers care for these cases to pain management specialists in the area.
We specialize in well visit physicals, wellness screenings, and preventative medicine. We help manage weight and work towards getting you to the goal of a healthy BMI. Our office offers flu vaccines during the flu season, as well as, other adult immunizations. Our providers also assess the need for screening examinations, and provide referrals as needed for mammograms, colonoscopies, and other life-saving screening tests.
