Did you know that in Europe doctors can prescribe being outside in nature as a legitimate prescription? They are definitely on to something because studies show that being outside in nature can help improve #anxiety and #depression and generally puts you in a good mood. So let’s take advantage of the nice weather this weekend, increase our #endorphins and let #mothernature heal us. ~ Dr D

Reasons Why you should consider having a concierge doctor

February is American Heart Month.

To celebrate I would like to share a few facts related to the heart disease

1. The heart is one of the toughest organs in the body.

2. High blood pressure, Diabetes and High Cholesterol all contribute to Heart Attacks

3.Broken hearts are REAL. Also known as Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy

4. One in every Four deaths is related to Heart Disease

5. Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in women. More than Cancer!

6. Alcohol, smoking and stress all increase your risk of a heart attack

7. A plant based diet can reverse the effects of heart disease

8. Some heart disease if genetic (familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) This is usually silent but presents itself with sudden death in athletes.

9. Heart attacks CAN be avoided. 80% of them are preventable by: avoiding tobacco use, regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy diet, and regularly checking blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood lipids

10. Major warning signs of heart attack include Chest pain or discomfort, Upper body pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or upper stomach, Shortness of breath, Nausea, lightheadedness, or cold sweats.

Could you be at risk for Heart Disease? When was the last time you had an EKG?

Have you checked your Blood Pressure , Lipids and Blood sugar lately?

These simple tests can significantly change your life

Talk to your doctor about your heart health.

If you don't have a doctor send us a message and we can get you in.

Dr Fongod is always happy to answer questions

Happy to be offering Botox and Xeomin now at the office. Let help get rid of those lines...

[02/14/19]   Hello Delight Family, I have been thinking a lot about what this medical practice means to me. So I am going to share my thoughts with you all.

I wanted to have a medical practice where the focus was the patient. I see patients who have no insurance, have high deductibles or have good insurance. My goal is to give my best to my patients. I particularly enjoy working with the uninsured population. I have a deep respect for them because I have had a chance to learn so much from these people. Sometimes uninsured folks are seen as a burden to the system but a lot of people do not take time to get a deeper understanding of why these people are not insured. Some people cannot afford insurance and are not well informed about the resources available to them. Some people can afford insurance but just don't understand our current insurance model (Heck I don't blame them... I barely understand it). I grew up in a country where going to the doctor was simple. You saw the doctor for a check up, paid for labs and medications and went home. If you got too sick you were admitted to the hospital. A lot of immigrants have similar systems so the idea of insurance doesn't always make sense.

I want to focus on treating the uninsured, the under-insured and everyone else who wants to have a personal relationship with your doctor. I do not work insurance!

If you speak a language other than English, Come with someone who can translate for you.

$150 per visit per person
$99 for Telemedicine calls
$250 for house calls (1 time)

I see patients in Fairfax VA and Ashburn VA. Send me a message if you have questions. Call 703-879-4729.

I am a big fan of intermittent fasting as a tool for weight loss but it’s not for everyone. Make sure you have a provider that understands IF and can help guide through the process

Imagine that you can kick-start your metabolism, feel more energy and enjoy an assortment of health benefits without having to count calories or stick to strict meal plans.

Here is the video interview I had with Stuck in the Middle podcast over the weekend. It was my first podcast and I was quite nervous and made some mistakes but I am glad with how it turned out. I will be writing a blog post to correct some of those mistakes and to talk more in depth about some of the topics we discussed. Also you can listen to the video on the Stuck in the Middle podcast.

Had a great time with Stuck in the middle podcast! Go like their page!!!

Dr. D (Delight Primary Care) is in the house, with a special somebody 😩🎀

you absolutely do not want to miss this episode. 🔥

sitmpodcast.com

This was shared in a physician group about a patient. It saddens me that people cannot choose a doctor they want to see. Now insurance companies dictate who you see and can even threaten you by not paying for medications and labs....

This Is one of the reasons why I choose not to work with insurance companies. They really do not care about people as individuals. All they care about is the dollar 💵.

If you have no medical insurance and will like to have a primary care physician Delight Primary Care is for you.

If you have insurance which is a PPO you can see the doctors at Delight Primary Care.

If you have an HMO plan, unfortunately you will have to check with your insurance company to see if you can see a doctor out of network.

If you have an HSA account, you can use it to pay for Delight Primary Care fees. However this will need to be rectified with your accountant/CPA for tax purposes.

Visit us at Delightprimarycare.com for more information.

Lastly we have few spots left for the free adult physicals so call us at 703-879-4729

Quick tip about exercise. I will be dedicating Wednesday’s to diet and exercise tips

FDA expands recall of blood pressure drug

The FDA has currently recalled Valsartan due to contamination from its suppliers. If you are currently take Valsartan ( for high blood pressure) check with your pharmacist to make sure your medicine isn't from the recalled batch

cnn.com The US Food and Drug Administration expanded the list of recalled valsartan products. The drug is used as a component in drugs that treat heart failure and blood pressure.

Rainy day thoughts

I love berries! Blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries,Strawberries etc They can been eaten as dessert, a snack or can be a good topping on oatmeal or yogurt. I personally make sure to buy them in bulk when they are in season and freeze them to use for my smoothies and oatmeal. These fruits can be part of any diet and have a lot of benefits to ones body.

1. Fiber. Berries are high in fiber which means you have reduced hunger and the feeling of fullness last longer. Plus it helps you stay regular.
2. Antioxidants. Berries are high in antioxidants which help protect the cells from free radical damage. They also have anti-inflammatory property which diseases such as cancer, obesity, heart disease and diabetes

3. Diabetes. Berries are good for patients with diabetes because they improve blood sugar and insulin levels. They have a low glycemic index which means they don’t cause an insulin spike when consumed.

4. Vitamins and Minerals. Berries contain Vitamin C and K and minerals such as copper, folate and manganese just to name a few.

5. Diet Friendly. No matter what diet you are on, vegan, paleo, keto, mediterranean etc you can incorporate berries into your diet because they are low in calories and low in carbohydrates as well.
.
.
Add berries to your diet!!! You won’t regret it!!!

Cherries are currently in season and they are everywhere. Here are 5 health benefits of including cherries in your diet.

1. Diabetes protection. This is a low glycemic index fruit which means you will not have sugar or insulin spikes and crashes when you consume this fruit.

Earlier this year I read about this man who was a self employed entrepreneur who never had health insurance. He felt ill but never went to the doctor because he couldn’t afford it.
.
He won the Lottery and decided to see a doctor now that he could afford it. Sadly he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and died a month later.
.
Not having health insurance shouldn’t stop you from having a primary care doctor. As an entrepreneur, your business cannot flourish without you being in good health. At Delight Primary Care, we see all adult patients whether they have insurance or not and an affordable price .
.
.
If you would like know about your options as an uninsured person, contact us and our Doctor will personally talk to you.
.
.
Do not wait until it is too late to have a primary doctor to take care of your health .

Had a great time networking at the Tyson’s Chamber mixer tonight. Networking is a great way to meet people in the community and it is very important for entrepreneurs.
