Wellness & Prevention Program
Dr. Lasala’s wellness and prevention program at Tanque Verde Internal Medicine is designed to give you the right information and additional resources to make good decisions about your health and achieve your goals.
By being aware of your own health risks early on, you can potentially avoid costly medical problems later in life. The end goal of this program is to create a personalized wellness plan to maintain and/or improve your health. Members of our concierge medical practice in Tucson, Arizona (age 17 and up) are eligible for this program.
We can evaluate your risk for:
- Heart Disease
- Lung Disease
- High Cholesterol
- High Blood Pressure
- Vision and Hearing Loss
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Sleep Disorders
- Nutritional Deficiencies
- Hormone Imbalances
- Other Health Conditions
What to Expect
The wellness and prevention program is conducted over three appointments.
First, we’ll schedule an intake appointment to gather information about you and allow you to meet the doctor. There is no charge for this appointment. If you agree to become a member of our practice, we will schedule the next visit to begin your wellness and prevention program.
At the second appointment, we perform comprehensive tests to detect and treat diseases in their earliest stages before major problems develop. We will do blood work, urinalysis, and other diagnostic testing to evaluate the health of your heart, lungs, and other organs, as well as your physical health (weight, height, BMI, nutrition, body composition, resting metabolic rate, etc.). This information gives us a baseline profile of your health status – a reference point that we can use to measure your progress.
The third appointment is when you meet with the doctor again for a physical exam. Dr. Lasala will review your test results and listen to your concerns. This information is used to develop your wellness plan for the year. Maybe you want to reduce the number of medications you are taking. Maybe you need to lose weight. Perhaps you want to run a marathon this year. We can assist with all of these things. Plan on spending about an hour in the office to complete this visit.
