General Wellness Q&A

What general wellness services are available?

Dr. Jones and Dr. Patel tailor their general wellness care to you and your health goals. They can apply general wellness care to help you toward these and many other benefits:

  • Improved mental health
  • Healthier skin
  • Weight loss 
  • Smoking cessation
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Injury prevention
  • Improved nutrition
  • Reduced stress

Talk with Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones about what you want to get from your general wellness care so they can tailor your treatment. 

What should I expect during a general wellness consultation?

Apex Wellness is a telehealth-based practice, so rather than visiting a physical location, you take your appointment with Dr. Jones or Dr. Patel via video call. 

This helps you avoid the hassle of driving to a certain location or sitting in a waiting room and instead maximizes the amount of time your provider can spend with you. 

During your first general wellness video call, Dr. Patel or Dr. Jones has a conversation with you. Their goal is to get a better understanding of your health history and your wellness goals. With that in mind, they’ll ask you about:

  • Your personal and family health histories
  • Any medications, vitamins, and supplements you’re taking
  • How you usually eat
  • Whether you usually exercise and, if so, your preferred physical activities
  • Your job
  • Your hobbies
  • Your sleep patterns
  • Your stress levels
  • Your alcohol, tobacco, and drug consumption

Based on these factors and any other information you feel is relevant, they can help you identify obstacles to your general wellness goals and lifestyle changes or treatments to help you move toward them. 

They can target treatment and care wherever you need it most, like your mental health or your skin, for example. 

What is ergonomics?

Ergonomics focuses on improving your work environment to reduce injury and chronic pain conditions. For example, you might not think about the setup of your workspace when you’re working from home. 

If your home office is not set up properly, it can affect your productivity and health. Similarly, children may not be as productive when learning at home.

During your consultation, Dr. Patel or Dr. Jones asks questions about your occupation, your daily tasks, and any discomfort you may experience. They might request to see your work environment.

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones can also help you create an ergonomic environment to keep your child comfortable and focused so they can succeed while learning remotely. Good ergonomic habits can help prevent future health problems in your child.
