  • Office Dermatology

    Doing regular physical examinations starting in adolescents not only would encourage meeting wellness goals decade after decade but will also provide early detection of cancer. Pap smears, prostate screening, skin cancer surveillance / treatment, and referrals for colon cancer screening are done here at Dixie Primary Care. We help you with prevention and early detection screening.

  • Women’s Health

    We offer wellness counseling and routine screening of women from the adolescent years to the geriatric population such as physical examinations, breast cancer screening, STD screening, Pap smears and sports physicals and will advise referrals for further tests.

    We have completed additional training in hormone replacement therapy and recognize multitudes of disease presentations related to deficiencies or over activity of not only female hormones but also other hormones in the endocrine system which may effect sleep and weight. These do not act individually and therefore requires treating the individual as a whole.

    We believe that an integrative approach combined with western modalities of prescription medications will help you maintain your well-being and help you age gracefully and comfortably.

  • Acupuncture

    Trigger point therapy as a western modality entails identifying trigger points in muscle groups and deactivating them. Though it is not acupuncture, patients may think so because of the use of needles or injections in muscle groups. It treats muscle aches that may have been present for years and relieves them nevertheless. Acupuncture is a collection of procedures which involves the stimulation of points on the body using a variety of techniques, such as penetrating the skin with needles that are then manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation. It is one of the key components of traditional Chinese medicine, and is among the oldest healing practices in the world. The World Health Organization suggests acupuncture as a treatment modality for pain, especially knee osteoarthritis.

    Dr Paradela is a physician who practices medical acupuncture and uses an integrative approach of both Eastern and Western medicines. Acupuncture allows the body to “reset” after years of emotional and physical insults. Pain is the most common reason for an initial acupuncture visit. She also does trigger point deactivation that helps with musculoskeletal pain in both acute and old injuries.

    Our practice does not take insurance for acupuncture. Trigger point deactivation, as it is a fascial treatment, may be covered by insurance. Please call our office for fees.
