Medication Review Service

The Center for Health & Wellness specializes in managing medication therapy. Our medication review services can enhance patient understanding of medications, improve medication adherence, and prevent drug complications and interactions. We provide comprehensive medication reviews (CMRs) which are interactive consultations between patients and pharmacists to help ensure the safety and efficacy of medication use. CMRs are generally provided annually, and follow up appointments are scheduled as needed to optimize the drug therapy.

All personal health information received by the Center for Health & Wellness is secured, and patient privacy is always protected. The Center for Health & Wellness does not share any patient information with Sullivan University System.

If you have any chronic medical conditions, or you use medications every day, please contact us to schedule your medication review today.

The following vaccines are available for administration:

Tuberculosis Screening

Tuberculosis (TB) is an extremely dangerous infectious disease. TB transmission has been frequently documented in health care settings where health care workers and patients come in contact with people who have TB disease. For that reason, many professions today, including the health professions, need to be regularly screened for TB exposure. The Center for Health & Wellness provides Tuberculin Skin Testing (TST) to identify individuals that may have been exposed to TB. Click here schedule schedule an appointment to receive your TST.

Diabetes Management

Diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are above normal. Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar, for our bodies to use for energy. The pancreas, an organ that lies near the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes sugar to build up in your blood.

Diabetes can cause serious health complications including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-extremity amputations. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. Managing diabetes can be difficult, requiring changes in lifestyle, physical activity, diet, and medication use. The Center for Health & Wellness can provide one-on-one diabetes management services that work with you and your primary care provider to optimize your health. Please contact us to schedule your diabetes consultation today.

Cholesterol Management

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that your body needs. When you have too much cholesterol in your blood, it can build up on your artery walls. Having high cholesterol puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death in the United States. Managing cholesterol can be difficult, requiring changes in lifestyle, physical activity, diet, and medication use. The Center for Health & Wellness can provide one-on-one cholesterol management services that work with you and your primary care provider to optimize your health. Please contact us to schedule your cholesterol consultation today.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Management

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, or COPD, refers to a group of diseases that cause airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. It includes emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and in some cases asthma. Living with COPD is not easy, but we can help. The Center for Health & Wellness can provide one-on-one COPD management services that work with you and your primary care provider to optimize your health. Please contact us to schedule your COPD consultation today.

Anticoagulation Management

Blood clotting is a serious medical problem that can be fatal. You may need to take medications to avoid blood clotting (called “anticoagulants”) if you have been diagnosed or treated for one or more of the following:

  • Atrial fibrillation (AF)
  • Artificial heart valve
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Prevention of blood clots (e.g. genetic clotting disorders)
  • Stroke
  • Heart Attack

Sometimes it is only necessary to take anticoagulants for a few months, but in many other circumstances you will take them for life. Anticoagulant drugs affect the blood’s ability to clot and therefore patients may be at an increased risk of bleeding when using them. Because of this risk, it is vitally important that patients be monitored regularly and only use the medications as directed.

The Center for Health & Wellness can provide one-on-one anticoagulation management services that work with you and your primary care provider to optimize your health and ensure your safety. Please contact us to schedule your anticoagulation consultation today.
