Not only is this the best way to treat all medical issues, it is especially so for women and medically complex patients. Medically complex patients by definition are “individuals who need extra care due to complex medical issues that are often times compounded by social, economic, environmental, and behavioral factors.”(1) If you do not include evidence-based care in your practice, you are essentially ignoring this group.
The same is true when it comes to women. Women have unique health issues including pregnancy, menopause and other conditions of the female organs. Not only this, but “some of the health issues that affect both men and women can affect women differently”(2) making it evidently clear women require unique care that only a holistic view of the patient can truly provide.
At San Mateo Primary Care, we understand every patient has specific needs – especially women and medically complex patients – that require specific solutions. Our goal is to work with patients to approach medical issues from all sides to solve current problems quickly and efficiently and to prevent future problems from occurring.
