At North Shore Primary Care, we provide our patients with a variety of health and preventive services and examinations. Some of these services include:
North Shore Men/Women Comprehensive Health Care
Comprehensive Health Care at North Shore Primary Care is health care that provides for all our patients’ needs at all stages of their lives. No matter if the patient needs a routine physical examination for school sports, or requires a health examination for a new job, North Shore Primary Care is able to give the level of attention necessary in order to accomplish these requirements. Our objective is to help patients stay both fit and healthy. We encourage patients to attend to medical concerns as soon as they arise, rather than waiting for them to become more serious or critical.
At North Shore Primary Care, routine diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up all fall under the umbrella of our comprehensive health care services.
North Shore Preventive Wellness
Now, more than ever before, businesses are looking to cut costs without compromising quality. Through organizational assessments, surveys and focus groups, many leaders have identified a growing threat to their organization’s competitiveness and profitability—health care costs. The health care team of professionals at North Shore Primary Care provide yearly physical exams designed to prevent the emergence of medical problems with the overall goal of promoting wellness. By emphasizing education, we are able to assist our patients in reducing long-term health care costs by lowering the incidence of avoidable health care illnesses.
By engaging in ongoing dialog with our patients, North Shore Primary Care is able to help educate them on how they can reduce health care costs through disease prevention. Furthermore, we are able to support our patients in organizing workplace wellness initiatives. By keeping our patients abreast of the latest health and wellness trends, we allow our patients to make informed decisions about improving their own personal health.
North Shore Acute Sick Care
If you develop an acute illness, we will fit you into our schedule the same day, and evaluate your symptoms appropriately. We will prescribe treatment and follow-up with appropriate recommendations for longer term care.
North Shore Perimenopause
Perimenopause is also called menopausal transition. North Shore Primary Care provides treatment and counseling for its patients who are experiencing perimenopause. Symptoms of perimenopause vary from patient to patient. Some symptoms occur in women earlier than others. Essentially, perimenopause is the interval in which a woman’s body makes a natural shift from more or less regular ovulation cycles and menstruation toward permanent infertility or menopause. Some women begin perimenopause as early as their 30s or 40s. They may experience menopause-like symptoms such as hot flashes, sleep problems, mood changes, vaginal dryness, bladder problems, changes in sexual function, loss of bone density and changing cholesterol levels.
We at North Shore Primary Care offer treatments to our patients to help ease the perimenopausal symptoms. We can evaluate the different treatment options, and decide which ones are most appropriate for you. If you are experiencing symptoms that interfere with your lifestyle or well-being , it is important that you make an appointment to see your doctor. Our professionals are available to help guide you through this period of adjustment and transition.
North Shore Nutrition and Fitness
Nutrition and fitness go hand-in-hand with disease prevention. North Shore Primary Care provides assistance in helping patients determine the healthiest nutritional plans for their medical needs. Most patients need both nutritionally sound eating habits and an exercise regimen. We will work with you to develop the finest and healthiest fitness programs.
North Shore Bariatric Medicine/Medical Weight Loss
Dr. Shana Weiss specializes in Bariatric Medicine. Dr. Weiss is a member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and has received special training in treating obese patients. Bariatric medicine is the treatment of obese and overweight patients and the health conditions that are associated with obesity. If you are overweight, you are at risk for gout, high blood pressure, breathing disorders, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. North Shore Primary Care has different programs that are designed to help you lose weight under our doctor’s supervision. Our Bariatric Medicine program focuses on a variety of approaches from nutrition and exercise to lifestyle and behavioral changes. It may also include interventions with medications or a meal replacement (“liquid diet”) program.
One of the safest ways to lose weight is through the supervision of a qualified and specially trained physician. You will receive information on which foods you should be eating so that you are getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals. We will assist you developing a meal program that is tailored to your individual needs. We will also design a customized exercise plan that will complement your diet and nutrition program.
Our approach also focuses on the behavioral aspects of eating. We will address your issues and develop a plan for treatment that includes coping mechanisms for overeating, binge eating, stress eating, and dealing with comfort foods.
Dr. Weiss also treats pre- and post- surgical patients and provides long term follow up suited to their needs. Every patient in our bariatric practice t is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We will be there from beginning to end to assist you in developing the best approach to helping you achieve a healthy lifestyle through a personalized plan.
