We are always ready to care for any adult sickness. No matter how common, strange, easy or hard it may be. Dr. Kujok's specialties and services include (but not limited to):
► Comprehensive annual physical examinations/physicals.
► Cardiovascular risk assessment.
► In-office EKG testing.
► Immunizations and vaccines: Flu shot, diphtheria, and tetanus (DT).
► Fitness evaluations with recommendations for fitness programs.
► Preventative medicine: Hypertension screening, Diabetes screening, Colon cancer screening, Osteoporosis screening and prevention, Prostate cancer screening...etc.
► Diabetes management: Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).
► Congestive heart failure (CHF) management: Your body depends on the heart's pumping action to deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the body's cells. With heart failure, the weakened heart can't supply the cells with enough blood. This results in fatigue and shortness of breath. Everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs or carrying groceries can become very difficult.
► Hypertension (HTN) management: Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure is a cardiac chronic medical condition in which the systemic arterial blood pressure is elevated. What that means is that your heart is having to work harder than it should to pump the blood around your body. Blood pressure involves two measurements, systolic and diastolic. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 mm/Hg.
► Asthma: is the common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.
► COPD management: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the co-occurrence of chronic bronchitis and emphysema, a pair of commonly co-existing diseases of the lungs in which the airways become narrowed. This leads to a limitation of the flow of air to and from the lungs, causing shortness of breath (dyspnea). In clinical practice, COPD is defined by its characteristically low airflow on lung function tests. In contrast to asthma, this limitation is poorly reversible and usually gets progressively worse over time.
COPD is caused by noxious particles or gas, most commonly from tobacco smoking. The natural course of COPD is characterized by occasional sudden worsening of symptoms called acute exacerbations, most of which are caused by infections or air pollution.
► High cholesterol management: Hypercholesterolemia is the presence of high levels of cholesterol in the blood. It is closely related to the terms "hyperlipidemia" (elevated levels of lipids in the blood) and "hyperlipoproteinemia" (elevated levels of lipoproteins in the blood). This may be related to diet, genetic factors and the presence of other diseases.
► Thyroid disease management.
► Chronic disease management.
► Medical consultations and preoperative medical evaluation.
► Vision testing.
► Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs, venereal diseases) are among the most common infectious diseases in the United States today. These conditions involve the transmission of an infectious organism between sex partners. More than 20 different STDs have been identified, and about 19 million men and women are infected each year in the United States, according to the CDC (2010).
► Smoking cessation: Has a major and immediate health benefits for men and women of all ages. The earlier you quit, the greater the benefits. Smoking cessation is also important to those who do not smoke since being exposed to second-hand cigarette smoke is responsible for a number of serious health conditions. Quitting and staying away from cigarettes is difficult, but not impossible.
► In-office laboratory for selected tests: PT/INR, Urinalysis, Hemoglobin...etc.
► Pap smears.
► Coumadin clinic (monitoring PT/INR and adjustment of dose).
