In order to properly treat any medical condition for the best long-term care possibility, it’s important to understand the root causes of your specific condition. Too many times, health care professionals focus too much energy on treating the symptoms of a medical condition, as opposed to the cause. The team at Integra Medical Center—Dr. Tim Dancy, MD and Holly Bennett, CRNP—incorporates several forms of testing and examinations in the course of your medical evaluation. If you know that you have a specific medical need, learn more about the specific medical services offered at Integra Medical Center.
In addition to a detailed interview process, in which the physician will discuss your medical history, a complete and thorough physical exam will be performed. This process enables your physician to ascertain the state of your overall health including any concerns related to weight, flexibility and mobility to highlight just a few.
An analysis of your blood may be requested based on your physical examination and current health condition. Results of your blood work will assist our physicians in ascertaining proper treatment, exposing a variety of potential medical conditions.
Blood Pressure Monitoring
As part of your physical examination, your blood pressure will be monitored and gauged to identify whether you may suffer from hypertension. Often, patients don’t realize that they may be suffering from high blood pressure, which can result in several debilitating symptoms including:
- Frequent Nosebleeds

- Ringing In The Ears
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Chest Pain

Failure to address high blood pressure can be deadly. Hypertension has been proven to be major risk factors of aneurysms, stroke, kidney disease as well as heart attacks.
