Complete Primary Care
Barnard Medical Center
Primary Care, Medical Clinic
We provide complete primary care. If you just need a physical or have a simple medical problem, we’re glad to help, but we also provide expert care for more serious conditions:
- Weight control
- Heart health
- High blood pressure
- Elevated cholesterol
In addition to medical care, we offer in-depth support for good nutrition. Better eating habits are often the key to better health
Our team will work to help you improve your diabetes—or even eliminate it to the extent possible. Although we can prescribe medications, we prefer to help you minimize your need for them. You can also take advantage of our comprehensive nutrition education, cooking tips, and group support to help you improve your blood sugar control, increase your energy level, and maintain a healthy body weight. Our highly effective approach was the outgrowth of our research funded by the National Institutes of Health.
Our weight-loss program is empowering and rejuvenating through a combination of healthful nutritional and emotional supports. We will also check for underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to weight gain, and we will provide treatment as appropriate. You will be closely monitored during your weight loss, and our clinicians will adjust prescription medications as needed. Individual and group support and nutrition classes are available, along with cooking instruction.
Heart Health Focus
In many cases, heart disease is reversible. If cholesterol, blood pressure, or heart problems are getting the best of you, our clinicians and dietitians are here to help. Although there are times when medications are necessary and helpful, our primary focus is on improving your nutrition, lifestyle, and overall well-being. We will provide you the instruction and support to take full advantage of the power of healthful eating.
Arthritis and Migraine Focus
Rheumatoid arthritis and migraines often respond to simple nutritional changes. The same may be true for menstrual pain. Certain foods may trigger pain and inflammation. Others alter hormone balance, leading to recurrent pain. We will help you identify the optimal nutritional balance to tackle your pain and feel better again.
