How can an internist help me stay healthy as I get older?

Internal medicine doctors are trained in adult diseases and the way certain lifestyle factors can influence the development of diseases in adults. Dr. Khasidy uses specific screening tests to help identify risk factors that could indicate you’re more likely to get certain diseases. He helps you implement changes to limit these risk factors and protect your overall well-being.

Additionally, he can offer lifestyle guidance and health education and information that can help you take control of your health as you get older. Dr. Khasidy can also recommend immunizations based on your unique risk factors to help ward off serious diseases that tend to be more prevalent among adults or can cause serious complications in certain groups of adults, such as if you have heart disease or other chronic diseases.
