What is family practice?
Family practice is a service that caters to you and your family's everyday health, providing primary care for all ages, from young children to seniors.
Family practice experts like Dr. Alevizos diagnose and treat a comprehensive range of common health problems and refer you when appropriate for specialized care. They have a broad knowledge base that provides them with skills in numerous areas, from gastroenterology and urology to pediatrics and orthopedics.
What health issues does family practice address?
Family practice addresses all health issues with the exception of emergencies that require hospital treatment. Some of the problems Dr. Alevizos can help you with include:
Sprains and strains, mild burns and scalds, cuts that might require stitching, and foreign objects stuck in your eyes or elsewhere are some of the more common minor injuries Dr. Alevizos treats. He also specializes in treating sports injuries.
Sick visits cover problems like fevers, sore throats, flu, nausea and vomiting, rashes, asthma attacks, and allergy flare-ups. All the conditions that make you feel sick enough to need medical attention with minimal delay.
Chronic health condition management
If you have a long-standing or incurable condition such as arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Dr. Alevizos can provide your routine care and see you for regular check-ups.
Dr. Alevizos also offers help with opioid addiction using Suboxone.
How else can family practice help improve my health?
As well as treating and managing a wide variety of injuries and medical conditions, family practice promotes preventive medicine practices.
Preventive medicine is a way of helping you avoid health problems in the first place. The more you and Dr. Alevizos can do together to prevent disease and promote healthier living, the less likely you are to require treatment for painful, disabling health problems.
Some of the ways that family practice supports your long-term health include:
- Annual physical exams
- Well-woman or men’s health exams
- Cancer screening tests
- STD (sexually transmitted disease) testing
- Medical weight loss
- Help to stop smoking
- Support with healthy lifestyle choices
Dr. Alevizos has particular expertise in hormone replacement therapy. He can identify hormone imbalances in men and women due to menopause and andropause (male menopause) and prescribe customized, natural BHRT (bioidentical hormone replacement therapy).
