Allergy and immunology services
Seasonal allergy symptoms aren't only a bother, but as allergy sufferers can attest, they're a huge hindrance to your everyday activities. During the Sacramento allergy season, watery eyes, sneezing, nasal congestion and wheezing can affect your ability to sleep, work and perform outdoor activities. Allergies can even lead to severe symptoms such as asthma.
Allergies occur when your body reacts to certain outside substances that trigger a reaction, or overreaction, from your immune system. Triggers can come from certain food, animals, or seasonal allergens including pollens, grass and molds. Allergy testing can determine what substances, animals and food your body is allergic to, allowing you to avoid an allergy attack before it happens.
If you suffer from asthma, allergy help is a necessity. Opt for Sacramento allergy testing, and find out what allergens trigger your asthma attacks.
Geriatrics is a sub-specialty of internal medicine and family medicine that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist.
Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes prominent. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of diseases and symptoms in different people. The appearance of symptoms depends on the remaining healthy reserves in the organs.
Internal medicine services
Internal medicine is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, management and nonsurgical treatment of unusual or serious diseases. Often the single point of contact for condition management, internal medicine providers have the knowledge to diagnose, treat, and prevent the entire range of diseases that affect patients of all ages, from pediatric to geriatric care. Our expert team of internal medicine physicians at Dignity Health Medical Foundation will be right by your side every step of the way.
Optometry and ophthalmology services
Optometry is a medical profession that deals with nonsurgical medical eye care and vision problems. Our optometrists are trained to provide high-quality eye care, including accurate glasses and contact lens fitting. Some of the common eye problems Mercy Medical Group's optometrists manage include:
- AcrySof® ReSTOR® vision restoration surgery
- Optometry services
- Pediatric exams
- Glaucoma surgery
- Vision testing
Many eye problems are related to other medical conditions, such as diabetes and autoimmune or thyroid disease. Under these circumstances, Mercy Medical Group's ophthalmologists work closely with physicians in other medical specialties to diagnose and treat the underlying problem.
