With the addition of our newest team member, Kathy Berns, a family nurse practitioner, we now provide full primary care services as well as a variety of pain relief options to our already outstanding line of chiropractic services, on-site digital X-Ray, auto accident rehab, TMJ and facial pain therapy, and more.
In addition to our family nurse practitioner Kathy Berns, Cardinal Physical Medicine also now offers expertise and care from Dr. Edwin Dunteman, a collaborating physician for Cardinal Physical Medicine.
With the expansion of our services, which now includes primary care services, we here at Cardinal Physical Medicine can help you manage your health better than ever before.
Cardinal Physical Medicine’s Primary Care Services Include:
- Physical examinations: If you need a routine physical for sports, work, school, or just an annual check-up, Cardinal Physical Medicine is the place for you. Physical examinations include an evaluation of the body, its overall health, and its functions using inspection, palpation (feeling with the hands), percussion (tapping with the fingers), and auscultation (listening), while also gathering information about the patient’s medical history and lifestyle. We can also perform lab tests and screening for diseases, if needed, as detecting a problem in its early stages can help produce positive long-term results.
- Rapid strep throat or illness testing: Cardinal Physical Medicine’s primary care services also includes testing for and diagnosis of strep throat, a contagious illness that causes inflammation and swelling of the mucous membranes lining the back of the throat. Detection and treatment of this illness, as well as instances of urinary tract infections, are among the services we specialize in at Cardinal Physical Medicine.
- Allergies: Cardinal Physical Medicine’s primary care services can assist you with your seasonal or long-term allergy relief from things like grass, weeds, pollen, mold, pets, or even certain foods. If you’re experiencing symptoms from itchy eyes to a runny nose, sneezing, rashes or hives, wheezing, congestion, pain, or more, our nurse practitioner can help you find relief!
