Heritage Healthcare Center For ADULT Medicine
Appointments with a medical provider for routine and preventive health care are available for the following services: annual exams; vaccines; sick visits; screenings for cardiovascular disease; cancer screening; diabetes care; blood pressure control and all other chronic health conditions.
The providers at Heritage HealthCare are especially concerned about our senior citizens who became isolated during the pandemic. Many stopped going to their doctor for routine care. In conjunction with the Behavioral Health department, the Heritage HealthCare medical providers are reaching out to reengage our older patients. We want our older patients to be happy and healthy in order to live a fulfilling life.
