Concierge Primary Care
Revati Wellness provides you with a full range of services to meet your health and wellness goals, from preventing disease to caring for you if you fall ill.
If You Become Ill
In the unfortunate event of illness, you will have peace of mind knowing that you can always reach your doctor, directly. Whether it’s the middle of the night and you’ve woken up with a high fever or it’s a bright and sunny day and you stepped on a nail, help is just a phone call away. While we are not a replacement for dialing 911 in a true emergency, other urgent situations can often be addressed, even after hours, with a quick call to Dr. Tom’s mobile phone.
Preventing Disease & Illness
While Dr. Tom is always available to address your medical problems, we go beyond this to anticipate and prevent future medical issues. A good example of this principle at work is related to diabetes prevention.
Decades of Damage
About 20 years of damage to the blood vessels occurs between the time blood sugars show signs of abnormal uptake and the diagnosis of diabetes occurs. In the medical “standard of care,” a doctor will perform a fasting glucose test to measure the levels of glucose in your blood when you are fasting. This is a screening test for diabetes. The test is used because it is simple, requires only one blood draw, and is inexpensive. When you reach a blood sugar level of 126, you are now diagnosed with diabetes.
Know Where You Stand
At Revati Wellness, we perform a pretty simple test that gives us information that tells us whether you are at risk of developing diabetes years ahead of time so it can be prevented. The test is a two-hour glucose tolerance test. This test can tell us if your body is resistant to the action of insulin (insulin resistance) and how much reserve the insulin producing cells in pancreas have available.
Prevent and Reverse
People with elevated blood glucose levels who have not yet developed diabetes can prevent and reverse this harmful insulin resistance. To do so requires only some simple lifestyle changes, but often doctors are too busy to provide this kind of in-depth counseling to their patients. At Revati Wellness, this extra time is built into each of our follow up appointments, and for those that want a bit more, we offer Lifestyle Coaching where we check in on your progress each week, to help keep you on track. The 2-hour glucose tolerance test is a standard part of our annual physical exam at Revati Wellness.
On the other hand, many health issues are exacerbated by the stresses of everyday life. Our patient members who have gone through our Mind Body Coaching program have reported feeling healthier, experiencing less anxiety, and sleeping more soundly.
Combining Conventional and Holistic
Finally, Dr. Tom has extensive experience reviewing the effectiveness of treatments that are both conventional (i.e. prescription drugs) and holistic (i.e. nutritional supplements). This allows him to make medical recommendations that are grounded in the latest scientific evidence – the treatments we offer here are backed up by studies in leading scientific journals.
If this sounds like the kind of care you would like to receive, we encourage you to set up a time to come in, tour our facility, and meet our team. You can call us at 440-249-4455, view the membership pages, or email us for more information.
