Services

At Jacksonville Total Care Medical Center, we assist patients with a wide variety of conditions. Here is an overview of our major practice areas.

Family Medicine

Family medicine is the practice of treating both adults and children. A skilled family medical practitioner, like Dr. Uche, is a doctor that your whole family can rely on for care as they age. Many practitioners are also skilled at treating common women’s issues as well. If you are seeking a primary care physician for your family, consider us as one of your options.

Preventative Medicine

The best way to avoid a health problem is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Preventative medicine is aimed at catching problems before they turn into serious and expensive medical conditions. Common preventative procedures include physicals, dietary and lifestyle advice, and blood tests to look for warning signs.

People who get preventative treatments not only keep their health in check, but some insurance providers also give discounts for people who get preventative checkups. The earlier that a problem is found, the easier it is to fix it.

Pain Management

Many diseases are painful and require management in order for people to keep living a good life. However, pain medication has serious potential for addiction. Doctors skilled in pain management can help you find a strategy that helps you find the best pain management regimen that gives you relief without compromising your life. We do see patients who are currently on opioid medications and want a second opinion or who wish to stop taking opioids.

Hormone Replacement

As our bodies age, the levels of certain hormones decrease. This is the cause of the symptoms of menopause and andropause. Certain health risks and signs of aging increase as the levels drop. Hormone replacment therapy boosts the levels of these hormones in older people or in people who cannot create enough of them on their own.

Weight Loss And Aesthetics

We are in the midst of an obesity crisis that threatens the health of millions. Staying at a healthy weight is crucial for life-long health, not just physically but also mentally. Obese people frequently have problems with how they look. We help patients learn how they can lose weight safely and, if necessary, can give guidance on aesthetic procedures to improve their shape after weight loss.

Our practice is currently taking patients. If you’d like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Uche, please call our offices or use the contact form. Our staff will contact you to schedule.
