The importance of nutrition has been recognized since days of Hippocrates (400 BC), who famously said, “Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” At Southern Primary Care, we know that good diet and nutrition habits can lead to an improvement in overall health. Healthy diets can reduce the risk for chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and osteoporosis. Our health care professionals, and in some markets, our certified nutritional consultants will work with you to understand your unique needs and create a personalized plan to help you achieve your lifestyle and health goals.
Southern Primary Care works with nearly all of the hospitals in the area, allowing you to go to the hospital of your choice, and we can help coordinate care as needed. If you see one of our providers and need to see a specialist for a follow up at a hospital, we can provide the referral and help coordinate the logistics. If you end up at a hospital for another reason, we can help you have all your medical records transferred to Southern Primary Care, so your provider will be able to review your stay and test results and help with any needed follow up.
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, affects nearly half of all American adults. Since hypertension has no symptoms, you may not know you have it — yet it’s an important risk factor for heart disease and strokes. From diagnosis and monitoring to lifestyle guidance and prescription medication when needed, Southern Primary Care will help you maintain a healthy blood pressure and minimize your cardiovascular risk.
