Reclaiming Control & Embracing Your Health
Managing a chronic health condition can be overwhelming. If you are living with a condition such as high blood pressure or diabetes, you may wonder what it means for your future. You may be faced with different treatment options and struggle to choose the right one. Managing a chronic illness or condition can feel like a big deal sometimes, but you can take small steps each day, a little at a time, that will have profound impacts on your well-being in the long run.
OccuMed Primary Care offers treatment and management of chronic conditions to help patients live healthier lifestyles. At our office, we help patients explore possible treatments and build a wellness regimen that works best for their unique needs. Below are a few examples of the chronic conditions we help our patients manage. For more information on a specific condition, reach out to us today.
Diabetes happens when blood sugar levels cannot be regulated by the body. Spikes in blood glucose can cause widespread damage to the body and a range of physical symptoms, including frequent urination, fatigue, numb hands or feet, and more. Diabetes management involves a healthy diet and regular physical activity. We help patients build healthy habits in order to better manage their diabetes and prevent complications.
High blood pressure can put you at a higher risk for stroke and cardiovascular disease. Fortunately, many patients successfully manage their blood pressure through a combination of medication and lifestyle changes. We monitor your blood pressure and provide recommendations to keep the number down.
Asthma, a condition in which inflammation causes the airways to constrict and make it hard to breathe, impacts people with varying severity. We can help you find a medication that works best for you. Our individualized treatment plans make it possible to keep your asthma under control, such as identifying triggers and how to avoid them.
Skin disorders are not only uncomfortable, but they can also impact your confidence. Whether you have acne, eczema, or psoriasis, our physicians can help you effectively manage your chronic skin condition so you can look and feel your best.
Chronic pain can put you under ongoing mental and physical stress. We recognize that many people wish to avoid opioids, which pose certain health risks, especially in their long-term usage. That’s why we assist each client as an individual with unique health goals to find a treatment that works best for you.
There are many other chronic conditions that we treat, such as arthritis, allergies, COPD, migraines, high cholesterol, and heart disease, just to name a few. We encourage patients to contact our office to discuss treatment for their chronic health condition.

I was feeling ill and decided to call around to see if I could make an appointment for the same day. Occu-med was able to get me in and take me right away. The place is nice and the staff is super friendly. The doctor was great and very empathetic. He was able to diagnose me and give me meds for my ailments.
I absolutely love Dr. Patel and his staff. They are very friendly and welcoming. Dr Patel takes his time, listens and is very compassionate and caring. I never feel rushed. I also like that Dr. Patel personally calls with my lab results even if they are good, it’s nice to have a doctor who doesn’t only call when something is wrong. Highly recommend!!!!
Clean facilities with private personalized care. Great hours. They even have Saturday hrs. Not only is the staff friendly and professional, they are thorough and detail-oriented. Dr. Patel is awesome and a man of integrity. Your quality of healthcare is important to him. He tries to get to the core of your health problem rather than find a temporary fix.
