What is internal medicine?

Internal medicine is the application of clinical expertise and scientific knowledge to the diagnosis, prevention, and care of adults – from general health care needs to complex diseases. A physician specializing in internal medicine, or an internist, undergoes several years of medical school and postgraduate training to treat adults in this capacity. Their expertise is not limited to one organ or system; they are trained to handle anything you might bring to them.

Dr Stavy makes connections between your health history, lifestyle, and symptoms to accurately diagnose your condition and recommend the best course of treatment available.

What is preventive medicine?

Many conditions have varying prognoses depending on the stage at which the disease is detected. For example, many types of cancer have different “stages” and they all typically carry a worse prognosis with higher stages. This same concept holds true for diabetes and hypertension; the later they are diagnosed, the greater the risk of damage to other organs. Early detection, through the use of preventive medicine, is one key to longevity.

In considering your individualized plan for prevention, Dr Stavy takes a proactive, and holistic approach to your healthcare. Preventive medicine detects treatable conditions before they have the chance to impact your longevity or your quality of life.

 

What does preventive medicine involve?

Your preventive medicine plan changes with you from year to year as your health needs and goals evolve. The essential components of preventive medicine include:

Wellness exams

Your annual wellness exam is the cornerstone of your health care. During your wellness exam, Dr. Stavy reviews your entire medical history, family history, medications, allergies, habits, lifestyle and pretty much anything else that either you or she feel is important. During the visit, Dr. Stavy will perform a physical examination and order laboratory evaluations.

Screening Tests

Based on a number of factors including family history, age, and other risk factors, further specialized screening may be recommended to include, for example, dermatological evaluation, gynaecological evaluation, colonoscopy, endoscopy or bone density scan.

 

Why is preventive medicine important?

Preventive medicine is important because it’s often the best defence you have against chronic disease. Think of your health as an investment in your future. Take care of yourself now to give yourself the best tomorrow possible.

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine is an approach to health care that considers the whole person, not just their physical body, to pursue optimal health and wellness. As a holistic practitioner, Dr Stavy understands that imbalances in your body, mind, and spirit all impact each other and affect your general well-being.

For Dr Stavy, treating your condition is not just about alleviating your symptoms, but is instead more about resolving the underlying condition for real and lasting relief. Along with traditional Western medicine treatments, Dr Stavy may recommend lifestyle changes and natural healing techniques to improve your quality of life.
