Giovannie Eugenio, MD:
It is important to establish care with your family doctor and have wellness checks, because we want to keep our body healthy at all times. People always say, "I don't really need that. I'm feeling good. I'm OK," but it's really important. Early diagnosis is good prognosis. If you know earlier on what you've got and what's going on, then we're able to home in and get to the problem and have a better outcome.
In our clinic, we provide services for hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, asthma, COPD. For those things, we follow up on a regular basis because we want to make sure the medicines you're taking are also good for you. Those wellness checks will also be able to home in on any preventive stuff for you. Breast exams, pelvic exams, and even rectal exams for the males. We have a full working lab and X-rays here at the facility. We want to make sure that we provide care for you and make sure you're good and healthy.
It's important that we take care of our body. Healthy mind and body, I think, are what we need to start homing in on and taking care of ourselves. At Baptist Health Medical Group here in Somerset, we see patients from [age] 5 to geriatric. That spectrum of care for us here is available for all of our patients out there. Being here in your hometown, serving your hometown, I think nothing can compare. It's a family. We're just proud that we're able to contribute to the community in Somerset. That's important.
