CH Exterior

When people see the familiar Medics USA sign hanging above any of our Northern Virginia locations, they immediately recognize that we’re a place that they can come for medical care. Whether you’re in need of a primary doctor who can conduct physicals for your kids before the sports season starts, or whether you desperately need someone to deal with a broken arm over the weekend, Medics USA is there for you. However, many people don’t realize that we can help with more subtle needs as well, such as counseling that can help you achieve better overall wellness.

Smoking Cessation

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. Cigarette smoking kills more than 480,000 Americans each year, with more than 41,000 of these deaths from exposure to secondhand smoke.” As you can see, smoking is a real threat to your health and the health of those you love, but stopping is easier said than done. Have you been trying to quit smoking cigarettes or using other tobacco product, but just haven’t found a method that delivers long-term success? As part of our wellness counseling services, the primary doctors at Medics USA can listen to your exact needs and desires when it comes to smoking, and find a method or combination of methods that works for your lifestyle and budget.

Nutrition And Weight Loss

According to research published in the Journal of American Medicine, “one-third (34.9% or 78.6 million) of U.S. adults are obese.” The CDC reports that “obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death.” Very few people who are obese maintain that unhealthy level of weight because they want to or are simply too lazy to change. Instead, it’s often a lack of education about proper nutrition and how to adjust their lifestyle to achieve healthy weight loss. If you’re tired of struggling with your weight, the primary doctors at Medics USA are available to start a conversation about how manageable dietary changes can help you achieve better fitness.

Alcohol Dependency

Drinking may seem like a fun activity designed to help adults relax and be social, but there are millions of people who find it hard to keep their consumption limited to parties and holidays. The CDC reports that “excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) each year in the United States from 2006 – 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years.” At Medics USA, we understand how trying alcoholism can be for both the alcoholic and the people who care about them. Through our wellness counseling, we can help all of those affected by alcoholism get the help they need.
