Acute & Chronic Illness

At Parkway Family Physicians we provide care for all patients suffering from acute and chronic illnesses. What is the difference between acute and chronic illness?
Services

Acute illnesses like a cold or the flu are usually over relatively quickly. Chronic illnesses, such as asthma, arthritis, diabetes, AIDS and cancer are long-lasting health conditions.

Living with a long-lasting health condition presents many challenges. At Parkway we believe the more you know and understand about your condition and treatment and working together to manage it can help you take health challenges in stride. Many people find that taking an active part in the care of a chronic health condition can help them feel stronger and better equipped to deal with lots of life's trials and tribulations.

Each health condition has its own symptoms, treatment and course. Aside from the fact that If you're living with a chronic illness, you might feel affected not just physically, but also emotionally, socially, and sometimes even financially. We want you to know that the team at Parkway Family Physicians will always be here for you . . . providing you with the best course of treatment, care, support and understanding.

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Ness has been taking good care of me since 1988. Last year I needed major shoulder surgery and he referred me to an orthopedic surgeon who had the same compassion and medical values as Dr. Ness. Major surgery is no picnic, but with the kind and caring support of Dr. Ness, my surgeon and the team at Woodwinds Health Campus, my recovery was faster than expected, I was able to start physical therapy sooner and get my life back to normal. I credit the success of my surgery and recovery to the relationship between Dr. Ness and I, and in him knowing not only my medical history, but knowing me as a person and providing the level of care based on that knowledge. By the way, the day after I returned home from the hospital, Dr. Ness called to see how things went and more importantly how I was doing.”
