Family Medicine Q & A

Goldome Healthcare, Inc.

What does family medicine include?


Family medicine provides ongoing, comprehensive medical care to all members of a family. For most people, it starts with physical exams and wellness visits.


During physical exams, Dr. Chen reviews your medical history, administers immunizations if needed, and evaluates your overall health and wellness. This includes blood pressure and heart rate checks, and may also include specific testing if necessary, such as cholesterol tests.


If you suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, mental health issues, or any other chronic medical issue, Dr. Chen discusses your treatment plan with you during the appointment. He can then make adjustments to your treatment if needed.


Dr. Chen can tailor physical exams for your needs. Goldome Healthcare, Inc. offers school physicals, sports participation physicals, Department of Transportation physicals, and preoperative physicals as needed.


How often should you see your family medicine doctor?


Most patients, whether child or adult, should see their family doctor at least once a year for a physical exam and general wellness check. Dr. Chen may recommend more frequent visits if you suffer from chronic health issues such as diabetes, dangerously high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.


In addition to your physical exams/wellness visits, which usually happen when you’re physically well, you may need to see Dr. Chen for new concerns and issues that develop between your regular visits.


What if you have a sudden medical issue and need help?


The Goldome Healthcare, Inc. team is happy to help with sudden (non-life-threatening) medical issues and concerns. If you or your child is dealing with a common cold that just won’t go away, suddenly spiking blood sugar when you have diabetes, a painful cough, a sprained ankle, or any other acute issue, don’t hesitate to contact the Goldome Healthcare, Inc. team.


Goldome Healthcare, Inc. is fully equipped to handle nearly any acute or chronic health need for your family, but in some cases, you may need additional medical help. If you need to see a specialist, such as a cardiologist for heart issues, Dr. Chen will refer you to a trusted local specialist in that area.


If you need surgery, or if you’re hospitalized for any reason, Dr. Chen can co-manage your care with your hospital doctors to ensure that you receive the best and most well-rounded care until you’re discharged.
