How ACPNY Meets Your Care Needs at Any Age
Everyone has their own unique care needs when they visit a medical office, and these needs can be influenced by a number of key factors, including your age. At AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY), we understand that an adolescent patient shouldn’t be treated in the same way as an elderly patient. So whether you’re a teen going through puberty or an older patient struggling with joint pain, the providers at ACPNY are equipped to deliver the right kind of care at any stage of your life.
Regular Care Is Important, Even if You’re Young and Healthy
As a patient at ACPNY, your Primary Care Provider (PCP) will lead a Care Team of physicians, specialists, registered nurses, and others who will work together to address your specific care needs. By keeping up with your routine care and regular screenings, your Care Team is much more likely to identify potential health issues early on, which gives them a better chance to successfully treat or manage your condition.
In addition to the conditions listed above, your Care Team can also address more sensitive or unexpected issues that are likely to come up as you get older, such as:
- Sexual concerns around libido, erectile dysfunction, and vaginal atrophy
- Behavioral health concerns, including depression and anxiety
- End of life planning
Although these topics can be difficult to talk about, you can count on your Care Team to discuss these issues respectfully and without judgement. When you schedule an appointment with your PCP, you’re taking a crucial step toward managing your health and staying up to date on your care.
