Health and Wellness

December 16, 2013 by Dr. Platz

Yes! The road to good health is yours to travel. But you don’t have to do it alone. Whether you’re managing a health condition or making changes in your life or family – we can help.  Dr. Kyle Platz and Dr. Bradley K. Harrison want to help you meet your wellness goals.  As Family Physicians, we have extensive training in counseling patients on smoking cessation, weight management, and healthy lifestyle choices.

If counseling is not sufficient, we can discuss starting medications to help you quit smoking like nicotine patches, Zyban, or Chantix.  Some people may need medications like phentermine, topiramate, Qsymia, Belviq, or metformin.  If you like to discuss the medical management of these issues, please call us today at (785) 320-5000 to book an appointment.

We encourage all patients to take advantage of their yearly wellness visit.  Under the Affordable Health Care Act, insurance plans typically cover yearly wellness visits at no cost to the patient.  During the visit, we ensure all preventative measures are up-to-date for each patient and discuss the preventative options.  We will check blood pressure, ensure all immunizations are current, and ensure all screening recommendations (mammogram, pap smear, colonoscopy, prostate cancer screening, bone density screening, and many others) have been preformed.  We will individualize a prevention plan for each patient’s needs.
