Patient Services in Norfolk
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.
This is a term for hearing loss. It means a person has trouble hearing in one or both ears. It can also mean that a person cannot hear at all (is deaf) in one or both ears. Part of your routine care at JenCare includes working with your Primary Care Physician (PCP) on your hearing. Your PCP may recommend you see a hearing specialist if your issue requires it. If so, your PCP and hearing specialist will work together to coordinate your personal care plan so you can stay safe and enjoy a higher quality of life.
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.
Optometry is a medical specialty focused on the health of the eyes and vision. Optometrists can help you improve your vision, as well as diagnose and treat various eye diseases. At JenCare, we know that your eyesight and health are connected. That’s why we offer convenient onsite vision care services in many of our centers as part of our commitment to ensure you get the highest quality care. 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. Talk to your doctor or care team member about vision services and how you may qualify for them.
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 is a place where people get prescription and over-the-counter medications (also called OTC medications). As a JenCare patient, you can enjoy the convenience of getting the medicines you need right from your doctor during your visit. Getting your medicine while you’re here in our centers gives you and your doctor more time to talk about how and when to take it. You can also ask your doctor questions about your medicines. For you, that also means no waiting in long lines at the pharmacy or having to remember to get your refills in time. Talk to your doctor or a member of our care team today to find out how you can take advantage of this and other services JenCare provides.
Rheumatology is a medical specialty that focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions of the muscles, tendons, joints, bones and autoimmune diseases that affect these tissues. A rheumatologist is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. These conditions can also include tendonitis, osteoporosis and back pain. At JenCare, your PCP will work closely with your specialist to coordinate a personal care plan that keeps you safe and moving well with less or no pain. Your JenCare PCP and specialist will always follow through with each other about your care, your test results and any changes in your health.
