Getting healthy and staying healthy involves not only the prevention of diseases but also the management of conditions. VIPcare offers an array of services to manage chronic diseases that may be affecting your health.
What is Chronic Disease Management?
Chronic disease management is more than just about treating symptoms of a condition. It involves taking a comprehensive and total-health approach to managing symptoms of a long-term disease. It takes into account your total overall health and lifestyle. This not only works to manage symptoms, but it helps to slow down the progression of the disease and enables patients to take back control and enjoy their life once again.
What are Chronic Diseases?
Chronic diseases are conditions that progress over time and typically can’t be cured with medication or a procedure. They can last for many years or a lifetime. Chronic diseases must be managed on a daily basis. Some of the most common chronic diseases and conditions that VIPcare treats include:

Together, you and your provider will create a specialized treatment plan centered around your individual needs and health care goals. Your comprehensive care plan may involve medication management, physical therapy, or seeking care from a specialist.
