The Preventative Care approach is superior because it helps:
- Stay healthy longer
- Increased longevity
- Reduced medical bills
- Better quality of life
It has been said that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." An integral portion of the focus of Doctor Mocombe's practice is devoted to providing preventative care for his patients to help them stay healthy rather than trying to get them healthy after they have become ill. Doctor Mocombe will do everything within his power to cure a patient of his or her illness or condition, but ultimately his preferred approach is to help patients live a healthy lifestyle and address early warning signs of potential illness before it develops into a more serious conditions.
As an example, in New York State alone close to 9 million people have pre-diabetes. Diabetes in particular affects the community our office serves. Doctor Mocombe has made it a personal mission address the diabetes health crisis and to dedicate the extra time required during visits to identify those at risk for diabetes, recommend treatment and a preventative health plan for those diagnosed with pre-diabetes and answer any questions and concerns patients may have regarding diabetes management in order to prevent the condition from advancing further.
Ultimately, Doctor Mocombe believes it is his duty to service the local community for the greater good. The feels best way he can serve this community is not only to treat the health issues of his patients but also to prevent these issues from arising and advancing in the first place so his patients can live a long, healthy and disease free life.
