Our healthcare providers target the primary health issues in our community such as asthma, sickle cell anemia, diabetes and obesity by educating our patients and assisting them in prevention and early detection. Additionally, we have a strong smoking cessation plan which coordinates care with patients to overcome their smoking habits. With the help of medication and expert guidance, our patients are successful.
It is important for patients to note that once they have established a doctor at Horizon Health Center as their “Primary Care Physician,” they should communicate with their doctor on a regular basis. This means registering for a check-up every 6-12 months, calling your doctor after visiting a specialist or going to the emergency room, and making sure to bring all of your referral papers and other documents so that your doctor can evaluate them.
