What services are included in internal medicine?
Some of the most common services that Dr. Kwaw provides as an internal medicine specialist include:
A physical exam is a comprehensive assessment of your health. Dr. Kwaw encourages you to schedule an annual physical at least once a year to identify any changes to your health and fitness. During your physical, he reviews your medical history, records your height and weight, and checks your vitals.
Next, Dr. Kwaw examines your ears, nose, and throat and listens to your lungs with a stethoscope. He also palpates your abdomen to check for abnormal masses and make sure your organs are the right size and in the right location. If you’re visiting for a travel, work, school, or sports physical exam, your assessment may require additional tests.
In-office lab testing is available at Sunset Urgent Care for general blood work, STD screenings, cholesterol checks, and more. The practice has an on-site lab, so you can get your results sooner without traveling to an outside facility.
Chronic disease management
If you have a chronic disease, like kidney disease, diabetes, or asthma, Dr. Kwaw provides acute treatment and long-term care. Depending on your case, he may recommend medication along with diet changes, exercise, and lifestyle modifications.
Dr. Kwaw knows how quickly viruses and bacterial infections, like the flu and strep throat, can affect your health. That’s why Sunset Urgent Care offers rapid testing, prompt appointments, and convenient hours for all your health care needs.
