Understanding Concierge Medical Services | Fullerton, CA

Concierge medical services offer a comprehensive approach to healthcare, providing patients with personalized attention and a wide range of preventive measures tailored to their individual needs. As a gynecologist, my journey into concierge medicine began over 25 years ago when I recognized the need for a more holistic approach to women’s health. Since then, I have expanded my services to encompass not only gynecology but also preventative cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, female urology, and my unique Longevity Program.

My philosophy is simple: provide the best medical care possible by staying updated with the latest research and offering a clear understanding of options to achieve optimal health. This commitment to excellence has led me to continually expand my services, now catering to both female and male patients.

The scope of my concierge medical care is extensive, covering a broad spectrum of preventive measures and screenings. My Longevity Program offers an in-depth evaluation and examination, preventive cardiology, and assessments for conditions like prediabetes and atherosclerosis. Additionally, I provide genetic testing for various diseases, including Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular conditions, enabling early detection and personalized interventions.

Annual medical screenings form a crucial part of my practice, ensuring early detection of potential health issues. For women, this includes clinical breast exams, pelvic exams, and screenings for sexually transmitted infections, while men undergo testicular exams and other relevant screenings. Everyone can benefit from regular physical exams, blood work, and immunizations based on their age and risk factors, regardless of gender.

As patients age, the frequency and scope of screenings evolve to address changing health needs. For instance, individuals aged 40 and above undergo mammograms, prostate screenings, and Boston Heart Diagnostics’ proprietary cardiovascular risk screenings. Those over 50 receive additional screenings for osteoporosis, lung cancer, and immunizations against shingles and pneumonia.

Concierge medical services prioritize proactive health management, empowering patients to take control of their well-being through personalized preventive measures. By offering comprehensive evaluations, screenings, and ongoing support, I strive to ensure that each patient receives the highest standard of care, tailored to their unique health profile and goals.

Breast Cancer Screening – Fullerton CA

Breast cancer is the leading cancer diagnosed among women. In 2008, an estimated of 182,460 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed, and more than 40,480 women will die of the disease and is second to lung cancer as the most common cause of cancer death in the U.S. Women in the United States have a 1 in 8 chance of developing breast cancer by the time they reach their 90’s. The single most important factor for surviving breast cancer is the stage at which the disease is detected. The survival rate for early stage disease is 97%. It is 77% for disease, which has spread to the nearby lymph nodes, and 21% for distant metastatic disease.

Mammogram Screening:

In adolescence, the breast tissue is very dense; however, as women age, the dense breast tissue is infiltrated with fat cells, which allows for greater penetration of the x-rays used in mammograms. Women who have a first-degree relative with breast cancer should have their initial breast mammogram performed at 30 years of age, and then every two years until she is 40. Women without an immediate family history should begin mammogram screening at 35 and then every two years until 40. After 40, the accuracy of the mammogram greatly increases as the amount of fat replacement becomes more significant and mammograms should be performed annually

Self-Breast Examination:

Self-breast examinations should be performed on the last day of each menstrual period during the reproductive years. When a woman ceases menstruating, she is recommended to perform the self-exam on the first day of each calendar month. Remember, when performing self-breast exams, you are looking only for a change that you didn’t notice on previous self-exams (such as an area of thickening, or a small lump, or tenderness). When you do not find anything new or different, you can trust there is generally nothing to find.
