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

“I've been a patient of Dr. Hamilton's for approximately 15 years, and I have several medical problems. I have found him to be knowledgeable, caring, tenacious in finding a diagnosis, and quick to refer me to a specialist when one is needed. I love that his practice is in a small independent clinic where referral decisions and treatment plans are determined by doctors, not insurance plans. The staff knows me by name and I've never been denied a referral I've requested. If I call to speak with Dr. Hamilton, he always calls back promptly and sometimes even takes my call when I ask for him. The care I receive through Dr. Hamilton and his clinic is the best I've found, and as a patient with multiple health concerns, I've seen at least 50 different doctors. I strongly recommend this doctor.”
