I had three visits already with the first on 6-30-2023 with Dr. Hart. She and her staff were very pleasant and well organized. Dr. Hart was very knowledgeable and willing to answer all my questions, concerns, and medications, despite my having a very rare, orphan disease. Dr. Hart was willing to make the effort to solidly communicate with me, as a patient. So, I felt a great relief in finding my new replacement PCP physician, that was as professional, as my specialists. She was also able to refer me to another specialist, in order to deal with one of my other concerns. So Dr. Hart and her friendly staff get a big FIVE THUMBS UP from me.

I don’t know what this yelp thing is all about,  but I do know now about Dr. Hart of IHM Family Health Center.  She definitely gets FIVE THUMBS UP from me for her medical knowledge, care, and the willingness to communicate with a patient and answer my questions, concerns, and medications.  I have a very rare orphan disease, that involves having many Medical Specialists.I have had three appointments with Dr. Hart so far, since my first June 30, 2023 appointment with her.  I am so please to have Dr. Hart as my replacement PCP doctor.  She knows how to communicate with her patients, answer my questions, and carry on an exchange about the over 5000 MGs of meds, that I am required to take daily to stay in REMISSION.   So if you need a good doctor, WHO LISTENS, go try her out.

About Us
Why is preventive health screening important?

Preventive health screening is essential for several reasons:

  • Early Detection: It can detect health conditions at an early stage when they may be more treatable and manageable.
  • Health Promotion: Screenings can identify risk factors, allowing individuals to make lifestyle changes that promote better health.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Early detection and intervention may prevent the development of more serious and costly health conditions.
At what age should preventive health screenings begin?

The age at which preventive health screenings should begin depends on the specific screening and individual risk factors. For example, blood pressure monitoring often starts in childhood, whereas mammograms and colorectal cancer screenings typically begin at specific ages (e.g., 40 or 50 years old). Our team in Chandler, AZ can advise you on when to start various screenings based on your health status and age.

What should I do if a screening test shows an abnormal result?

If a screening test indicates an abnormal result, it does not necessarily mean you have a health condition. Further testing and evaluation may be needed to confirm the findings. We can help guide you through any additional testing or treatment if necessary.
