Below are the top four conditions that are most commonly treated by Dr. Gary Berlin at Carmel Care:
Strains and Sprains
Unfortunately, strains and sprains are very common but should not be ignored. All but the most minor strains and sprains should be evaluated by a health care professional to be properly diagnosed and, hopefully, ruled out for any broken bones. In order to properly heal, the affected limb or joint may be splinted until healing is complete. The doctor may also prescribe medications and make recommendations to help heal any strains or sprains as quickly as possible.
High Blood Pressure
Also known as the "silent killer," high blood pressure affects 31% (67 million) of American adults. The effects of untreated high blood pressure include kidney problems, strokes and heart attacks. Due to this, it's extremely important for those with hypertension to get their blood pressure checked regularly. In addition to lifestyle modifications, doctors may also recommend a prescription medication to help get your blood pressure under control.
When suffering from a stomach infection or food poisoning, the last thing you want to do is get out of bed to pay a visit to a doctor. With Carmel Care, Dr. Berlin comes to you to diagnose and prescribe the appropriate medications to get you feeling better. In addition, Dr. Berlin can give medications and fluids by intravenous injection to help get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
Colds and Upper Respiratory Infections
While colds are often considered minor ailments, it is important to distinguish them from more serious infections that could be due to the flu virus or strep bacteria. Dr. Berlin carries with him rapid clinical tests for strep and flu that can be used right at your bedside. With proper treatment, you could be well on the path to feeling better and avoiding more serious complications.
