Celebrate Your Love With An STI CheckFebruary 14, 2024
Taking care of your health is a lifelong process. Some days, it’s easygoing; some days, you need to slow down and take stock of your physical, mental, and sexual health. Our Orlando preventive care team can help you navigate your health journey one day at a time.
In the hustle and bustle of every day – work, friends, school, kids – taking care of yourself can take a backseat. We’re here to remind you to slow down – just for a moment – and think about the last time you had a preventative care check-up.
Has it been a while? That’s okay! Our team makes it easy for you to reconnect with your health and take charge of YOU! Here’s how our Orlando preventive care visits can help.
What Is Primary Care?
First things first …what in the world is primary care? Primary care is another way to say “general healthcare,” it’s a visit during which you can talk with your healthcare team about anything from a rash to high blood pressure. We take a whole person approach at Harmony Healthcare and want you to be comfortable enough to discuss your health concerns with us.
Let’s explore the checkpoints of Orlando preventive care that can lead to a healthier you.
Find Your Healthcare Partner
You likely don’t want to discuss your health with just anyone. It’s best to find a team who makes you feel at ease and will genuinely listen to what you have to say.
Our medical staff prides itself on being welcoming, inclusive, and friendly to anyone who walks through our doors. From your first phone call to checking out, finding a healthcare provider who’s a true partner makes taking care of your health much more accessible.
Check On Your Physical Health
As your primary care partner, we’ll start with your medical history. Any health conditions in your family should be evaluated more often than those you may not be genetically predisposed to. One example would be heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States.
If your medical history indicates a family history of this disease, we can assist you with a proactive and preventative treatment plan. This includes engaging in activities like eating better, exercising more, and taking prescribed medications. If you are a smoker, quitting will also contribute significantly to your overall health.
Other health conditions we can discuss and offer treatment for include:
- High cholesterol
- Hormone replacement
- Thyroid management
- Minor skin conditions
- And more
Whether you have a hereditary health concern, an issue that’s been on your mind, or want to ensure you have a clean bill of physical health, an Orlando preventive care visit is the answer.
Take A Step Toward Sexual Health
Getting your asthma and chronic migraines under control is a big step. The next step (or a step that you take along with your physical health check) is to mind your sexual health. Our clinic is your one-stop destination for STI checks and treatment. We offer testing and treatment for the following:
- Genital Herpes
- Hepatitis C
- And others
You never need an appointment to get a no-cost STI test, and we’d be happy to take care of your regular screenings during your Orlando preventive care visit.
Facing a positive diagnosis can be scary, but we’re here to help you with a personalized treatment plan for your sexual health. If needed, we can provide PrEP to prevent HIV and PEP after possible HIV exposure. These treatments work well to either keep you HIV-free or make sure you can engage in sexual activities safely.
Mind Your Mental Health
Mental health is widely recognized as a critical aspect of one’s overall welfare. At Harmony Healthcare, having a healthy mindset is crucial to functioning at your best. We can connect you to mental health counselors, and we offer gender-affirming care every other week to keep your mental health at the forefront of your holistic wellbeing.
