Patient Services in Mid-City
JenCare offers a variety of medical specialties and works with trusted, preferred specialists for our patients' care. These preferred specialists, both on-site and in the community, work side-by-side with our primary care physicians to care for each patient individually. For patients requiring off-site care from a trusted specialist, JenCare staff will coordinate the entire referral process.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It is based in traditional Chinese medicine, which believes that the mind and body are connected. This form of treatment uses a variety of techniques to stimulate specific points in the body to help it restore and maintain healing. It is used to help treat things like back and neck pain, nausea, migraine headaches, anxiety and sleep problems. Acupuncture is a complementary form of medical treatment, which means it is used together with the traditional medical care to help you reach your best level of health. At JenCare, we have doctors who specialize in acupuncture and provide treatment in many of our centers. You and your doctor can talk more about acupuncture and if it may be helpful to you. Our Patient Community Relations Specialists can let you know if your health plan covers this service and how you may qualify for it.
Behavioral healthcare is an emerging field within the practice of high-quality, coordinated healthcare. It is when behavioral health specialists and medical providers work together to care for a patient. This care may address mental health and substance abuse conditions, health behaviors (including their contribution to chronic medical illnesses), life stressors and crises, stress-related physical symptoms, and ineffective patterns of healthcare utilization. At JenCare, we provide behavioral healthcare in order to provide overall wellness to each individual patient in every aspect of their life.
Cardiology is a field of medicine that focuses on the heart and circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system. Cardiology includes the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease and heart failure. JenCare cardiologists are experts in dealing with disorders of the heart and work onsite in many of our centers. At JenCare, our primary care physicians work closely with our cardiologist to coordinate your personal care plan and help keep your heart, arteries and blood vessels healthy. We specialize in helping our patients manage conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and other health issues that can lead to heart disease. Your JenCare PCP and cardiologist are a team and continuously communicate with each other about your heart health.
A case manager is a healthcare professional who helps patients and their families and/or caregivers get through tough times. A case manager can give advice and help patients who have disabilities, mental health issues or social needs find services they need to maintain optimal health and quality of life. He/she also works closely with doctors, social workers and other community service providers to ensure patient needs are met. As a JenCare patient, we can link you to Community Connections services, which include support from a case manager, if life’s challenges may be affecting how you live. Your case manager can help you link to community agencies for help securing food, shelter, in-home support and other needed services. He/she can also help you prepare for a hospital discharge and your aftercare needs, connect you to support groups and recommend activity programs that improve your health. Your case manager will help guide you along the way and follow up for ongoing support.
Endocrinology is a medical specialty that focuses on the health of the glands in your body and the hormones they secrete. Your endocrine system can affect every aspect of your health. Your glands make hormones and release them into your bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream, these hormones travel to the organs of your body to help them function. Your endocrine system includes the thyroid, adrenal glands (located on the kidneys), pituitary gland (located in the brain), pancreas and other vital organs. As a JenCare patient, your Primary Care Physician (PCP) can help monitor many endocrine system issues, such as diabetes, thyroid disorders and more. They may also refer you to an endocrinologist if your health concerns require it. JenCare PCPs work closely with endocrinologists to coordinate your personal care plan and manage conditions such as diabetes and thyroid issues.
An echocardiogram (or “echo” for short) is a sonogram of your heart. An echo is a test that uses ultrasound waves to take a picture of the heart and its other structures. An echo can provide your doctor with useful information, such as the size and shape of your heart. This test can also help your doctor measure how well your heart is working, check for fluid around the heart and locate defects or infections. At JenCare, we perform echocardiograms right in our centers, so you don’t have to travel to a diagnostic center for this important test.
Common illnesses like a cold, the flu and pink eye are types of diseases that are caused by an infection. Infections happen when bacteria, viruses or parasites get into the body and start growing in number quickly. They are also easy to spread from person to person. Sometimes, an infectious disease can have no symptoms and a person may not feel sick at all. It can be in one spot of the body (like a small area on the skin) or it can get into the blood vessels and spread throughout the body (like the flu). At JenCare, your Primary Care Physician can generally diagnose and treat many common infections. Depending on the type of infection you have, your PCP may advise you to see a specialist who treats your specific type of infection. Your JenCare PCP will work closely with the ID specialist to coordinate your personal care plan to help you heal or avoid worsening symptoms. Your JenCare PCP and infectious disease specialist will always communicate about your care, your test results and any changes in your health.
Nephrology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease. Patients are referred to nephrologists for various reasons such as acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, kidney stones and hypertension. As a JenCare patient, your Primary Care Physician (PCP) works closely with your nephrologist to coordinate your personal care plan and help keep your kidneys at their healthiest. That includes helping you manage conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and other health issues that can lead to or worsen kidney disease. Your JenCare PCP and nephrologist will always communicate with each other about your care and monitor any changes in your health.

As a JenCare patient, your Primary Care Physician (PCP) works closely with your neurologist to coordinate your personal care plan and help keep your nervous system working at its best. Your JenCare PCP and neurologist will always communicate with each other about your care and monitor any changes in your health.

As a JenCare patient, your primary care physician works closely with our optometrists to coordinate your personal care plan and help improve and prolong your ability to see. Your JenCare PCP and optometrist will always communicate with each other about your care, your test results and any changes in your vision or general health.

Podiatry is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of your feet, ankles and lower extremeties. Podiatry can be very important to the health of seniors and their continued healthy mobility. A podiatrist can also be a critical component in the treatment of patients who are diabetic. Many JenCare centers have onsite podiatrists who can help you if you are experiencing trouble with your feet. That means your PCP and foot doctor can talk to each other, face-to-face, and coordinate the best care for you.
This branch of medicine focuses on mental health and emotional problems that can affect your behavior and quality of life.
