General Health & Wellness

The primary care providers at Internal Medicine Associates of Texas take your health care seriously. A patient is established into our practice after an initial visit where we conduct a comprehensive review of his/her detailed medical history, previous surgeries, current medications, and perform an overall assessment of their health. At subsequent visits, we are then better equipped to treat the patient’s acute illnesses as they develop (colds, flu, headaches, sinus infections, etc) or design a treatment plan for existing chronic illnesses (Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.).

At Internal Medicine Associates of Texas, we like to see our patients annually to update any changes in their health over the previous year and to recommend any preventative care and screening tests and procedures which are appropriate for the patient's current conditions and age. These include mammograms, colonoscopies, blood tests, urinalysis, etc. This is done at an Annual Wellness Visit appointment. Biometrics, required now by most employers, are also measured at this visit and include your Body Mass Index, your fasting blood sugar, and your cholesterol. At this visit, we also identify any problems that the patient may be having that will need to be addressed in the upcoming year, sometimes requiring referrals to specialists. We refer our patients to a variety of excellent specialists both at Medical City Dallas and at other hospitals.

While we recommend annual wellness visits to all patients, some patients require visits every 3-4 months or more frequently depending on their health issues and chronic conditions.
