Chronic Disease Management with Primary Care

Tailored MD is on a mission to refocus healthcare around you and your individual needs. Nowhere is this more important than chronic disease management. San Antonio simply doesn’t have enough good options when it comes to chronic disease management.

Instead of paying high insurance premiums to see a busy, overworked clinician, wouldn’t you rather pay a predictable monthly fee to have an hour-long consultation with a clinician you know and trust?

Each person is unique, and your situation has to be taken into consideration when managing chronic disease. If you’re fed up with your current level of care and want healthcare that  prioritizes you, then contact Tailored MD for more information on becoming a direct primary care member.

How Does Direct Primary Care Help Manage Chronic Disease?

You might not expect direct primary care to be the answer to chronic disease management. Most people think of primary care when they need to get a sprained ankle looked at or if they have a long-standing sinus infection. But that’s just scratching the surface of primary care. 

Tailored MD has helped hundreds of patients not only manage their chronic diseases but also reverse their chronic diseases. And it all starts with direct primary care.

Here’s what we have to offer:

1. Shorter Wait Times

The current healthcare system is full of waiting and frustration. Not only do you have to wait three weeks to see a clinician, but you meet unexpected delays in the waiting room. As you know, chronic diseases are difficult to live with. Pair a difficult disease with a difficult healthcare system, and you might not seek out the care you truly need.

With Tailored MD’s primary care, you won’t have to worry about long wait times. We make medicine convenient so that you can put your energy toward chronic disease management–as you should!

2. More Time With Your Clinician

Chronic diseases are complex. You need a clinician who spends the time getting to know you and your condition. That’s what we promise at Tailored MD. 

When you become a direct primary care member, you’ll receive 30 to 60 minutes for each appointment you set. You’ll be able to ask questions about your treatment plan and let your clinician know how things are going. In addition, you’ll have a whole suite of telemedicine options at your disposal.

3. Lifestyle Wellness Over Medication

Do you ever wonder if you truly need to be taking so many medications? You might not have to. At Tailored MD, we try natural, lifestyle-change treatments before prescribing pills. 

Why? Because too many busy clinicians will write a prescription to save time. Instead of working with you to find natural remedies for chronic disease, they simply recommend what’s most convenient. 

As a member with us, you’ll get access to our incredible health coaches. Ask them questions. Check in about your progress. Try new approaches to your treatment plan. Instead of bearing a list of uncomfortable side effects, you could be feeling better with nutrition, exercise, and stress management.

What Chronic Diseases Do We Treat?

Tailored MD treats and manages a number of chronic diseases through primary care. Take a look at this list to see if our services match your condition. Have questions? Please ask us.

1. Hypertension

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a common disease in America. Nearly half of all adults meet the diagnosis criteria. It’s crucial to get treatment quickly since hypertension can lead to stroke, aneurysm, and kidney damage. While you should take blood pressure medication as prescribed, direct primary care can help you achieve even better outcomes through health coaching and personalized wellness plans.

2. Thyroid

Thyroid conditions arise from complications with hormones and glands. Since symptoms for many thyroid diseases are general, many clinicians will misdiagnose these types of conditions. But your fatigue, weight fluctuations, and mood changes are real and need to be treated. Trust Tailored MD with your chronic disease management in San Antonio.

3. Obesity

Weight loss and nutrition require a comprehensive treatment plan developed by a trained clinician. Simply “cutting calories” won’t create lasting effects on your health. You need to work hand-in-hand with a health team that knows you and can meet your unique health needs. 

4. Cholesterol

All effective treatments for high cholesterol begin with basic healthcare and lifestyle treatments. When you have access to your clinician, you can routinely check your levels and adjust your wellness plan accordingly. This is opposed to other healthcare options where you might see your primary care clinician for fifteen minutes every year. Let’s get your cholesterol under control with chronic disease management through primary care.

5. Addiction

Addiction affects the entire body. It’s not simply a mental condition requiring a certain level of willpower. A direct primary care clinician can help you through addiction by improving your health. When you feel better overall, your cravings might decrease. We can also help you understand your body and the effects your addiction is having on your bodily systems.

6. Anxiety and Depression

Did you know that anxiety and depression are physiological conditions? This means that you might be feeling sluggish or unmotivated because there’s something wrong going on in your body. From gut issues to chronic pain, your health has a direct impact on your emotions. When you work with our direct primary care team in San Antonio, we can treat anxiety and depression from a health perspective so that you make noticeable progress.

Pair Chronic Disease Management with Incredible Preventative Care

Tailored MD is not just a chronic disease specialist in San Antonio. We’re also a general primary care center that puts prevention at the forefront of your health plan. 

We know that it’s much easier to treat an illness when it’s caught early. This is why we offer preventative exams and screenings to all of our direct primary care members. And did you know that the benefits of preventative care improve the longer you see us? As our clinicians get to know you, we will be able to spot irregularities in your lab results. We’ll be able to notice right away when your vitals seem off or your mood and energy levels just aren’t where they used to be.  

Preventative screenings and a close clinician-patient relationship are important for not only managing chronic disease but also catching chronic disease before it develops.
