We believe that comprehensive medical care means not only treating all medical complications of sickle cell disease, but also early detection, prevention, social support and education as well.
To accomplish this, patients are seen periodically for preventive care and annually to undergo a comprehensive evaluation. This includes examination of the main organs including, heart, lungs, eyes, joints and laboratory tests to monitor the functions of the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. This may include referrals to specialists in these areas for ongoing care. Attention is also given to social and educational needs.
Please contact us if you wish to discuss these aspects of comprehensive medical care or if you have any questions concerning your test results.
