When do I need primary care services?
Even when you’re in good health, you may still need to come into our office for annual physicals. Physicals are essential to ensuring your body is functioning properly and to monitor any potential changes that may be early signs of a health concern.
In addition to physicals, we also offer regular women’s and men’s preventative health screenings and exams. Preventive care is important to keeping you healthy and lowering your risk for potential infections and diseases.
If you’ve lost your ability to function certain muscles due to injury, illness, or surgery our staff at Physicians Express can help through physical medicine. Our physical medicine and rehabilitation services aim to improve and restore your functionality, mobility, and quality of life.
Our treatment programs are patient-centered and tailored to your unique needs and condition. We will work with your healthcare team to ensure your treatment is right for you. Our goal is to help you regain independence and functionality after physical impairment so that you can get back to enjoying your life as fully as possible.
Whether you are struggling with chronic pain, recovering from surgery, illness, or an injury we are here to assist you in your journey to a full and successful recovery. For more information on physical medicine and how it can help you or to schedule a consultation, contact our office today at (630) 584-9242.
Here at Physicians Express, we are proud to provide COVID-19 viral testing services during this global pandemic. This test will determine if you are currently infected with coronavirus, regardless of whether or not you are presenting symptoms.
If you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for coronavirus or have recently travelled to other states or countries, we strongly suggest that you schedule an appointment to be tested and take the precautions advised by the CDC.
It is important to note that a negative result does not mean you will not become sick in the future, as it is possible to have a negative result if you are tested in the early stages of the infection and test positive later in your illness.
Regardless of whether or not you choose to get tested, you should stay home and take the necessary precautions to stop the spread of disease if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact us today at (630) 584-9242.
We are proud to offer laboratory services with on-site testing using state-of-the-art technology so that you and your doctor can get your results as quickly as possible.
We can offer not only simple diagnostic tests but more complex ones, too. Once you’ve been diagnosed, we can start treatment so you can begin to feel better sooner. We can have certain test results in just a few minutes instead of having to wait to get the results from another laboratory.
The sooner we find out the results, the sooner we can begin treatment, and this can make a huge difference.
For more information on our laboratory services or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today at (630) 584-9242.
Many people tend to think of the immune system as a single entity, but it truly is an entire system with many different working parts. If any one of these parts becomes out of sync or disordered, it can wreak havoc on the rest of the system and the entire body too. Factors such as diet, exercise, age, psychological stress, child-bearing, and many others can affect the immune response. With so many elements contributing to the proper functioning of our immune systems, it’s essential to support them as best as possible. If the immune response does become disordered, Physicians Express can help you reset it and return it to proper functioning again.
Some of the best ways to support your immune system include:
- Don’t smoke
- Drink alcohol in moderation
- Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables
- Exercise regularly
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Practice good sleep hygiene and get adequate sleep
- Take steps to avoid infection, such as hand-washing and cooking foods thoroughly
- Minimize stress when possible
We believe that a natural approach to women’s health is always best whenever possible and that many conditions are actually symptoms of underlying root causes. If you feel that your immune system is not functioning at its peak, we are here to help get it back on track. Contact us for an appointment today!
