Here are some of the services provided by Mark Leeds, D.O. in his Fort Lauderdale, Broward County office.
Mark Leeds, D.O. is an Osteopathic Physician who provides many general medical services that one would expect from a primary care physician.
Dr. Leeds cares for patients who come in for basic sick visits.
This may include coughs, colds, flu, bronchitis, ear infections, throat infections, sinus allergies and infections and urinary tract infections. This is just a short list of the many common reasons why patients come in for general sick visits.
There are also what are known as chronic illnesses.
Dr. Leeds helps many patients who suffer from chronic illness. Chronic means something that lasts a long time, maybe even for life. This may include medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and many more.
One chronic condition that is a focus of Dr. Leeds medical practice is opioid dependence and addiction.
Another is alcoholism. These special chronic conditions are unique in that they affect a person’s mental condition and ability to exert self control in certain situations.
Dr. Leeds has extensive experience in treating opioid dependence with medication assisted treatment.
Alcoholism can also be treated to some extent with medical treatment. There are in fact new treatments for treating both alcoholism and opioid dependence.
Food addiction is another chronic condition that Dr. Leeds has extensive experience in treating.
Addiction to food is in some ways similar to drug addiction. The problem is that we all have to eat. Food plans, short-term medications, ongoing coaching and support help overweight patients take off the weight and keep it off. Patients with food addiction can learn to have a better relationship with food. They can learn to identify and avoid the triggers that cause them to lose control over eating.
Dr. Leeds can also be helpful in providing routine physicals to maintain good health.
There are recommended tests that can catch problems early. Choosing the correct tests requires a discussion with the doctor about personal and family medical history and a physical exam.
Dr. Leeds also provides medical services in a very quiet, peaceful and safe environment.
While some doctors offer premium VIP and concierge services to patients willing to pay extra, Dr. Leeds provides this treatment to all of his patients. There is not an army of office employees with a mission to keep patients away from the doctor. Not in Dr. Leeds office.
