General medical conditions
At The Coker Chest Clinic, we treat a broad range of medical conditions. We have a wealth of clinical expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of a full spectrum of health conditions and complex illnesses.
A private GP is a good starting point for any symptoms you may be experiencing. However, our private consultant in general medicine, Dr Coker, can offer an additional level of expertise and experience. She is highly skilled at unravelling the root cause of your symptoms, providing accurate diagnoses, and effective treatment.
Dr Coker is renowned in her field as being the go-to consultant for patients with unexplained symptoms and those who have struggled to find effective treatment elsewhere.
We have access to state-of-the-art equipment for imaging and other investigations, with a two-day turnaround for diagnosis. We are also able to refer you to other trusted specialists when necessary so that you can feel confident that all your medical needs are looked after.
Symptoms of general medical conditions
A general medical condition is any condition that does not appear to present straightforward or distinguishable symptoms from the outset, and requires investigation.
A large number of patients that attend our clinic present symptoms such as:
- Abdominal pain and discomfort
- Blood pressure (high or low)
- Swollen legs
- Visual disturbances
- Unexplained tiredness and fatigue
- Abnormal cholesterol profile
These symptoms can point to a variety of conditions, therefore it is important for our physician to carry out an assessment of the patient’s health, analyse their medical history, conduct further investigations and make referrals if necessary.
Our private consultant is well equipped to handle general medical conditions, having had many years’ experience as an acute physician within the public health sector.
We pride ourselves in being able to get to the bottom of your condition accurately and efficiently. We are confident that we can provide an accurate and fast diagnosis for your condition so that we can move onto a treatment plan to help you feel like yourself again.
Treatments for general medical conditions
Treatments for general medical conditions can vary greatly depending on the condition itself. At The Coker Chest Clinic, we offer a range of treatments for conditions of the heart such as hypertension and ischemic heart disease, hormonal issues such as diabetes and Addison’s disease, and problems concerning unexplained lethargy, thoracic conditions, tumours, and more.
Case study: General medical condition diagnosis
We see many patients who have been diagnosed incorrectly elsewhere. Thanks to our in-depth investigations, we can provide a successful diagnosis and treatment the first time around.
Here is an example of how we were able to help a patient who had received a previously incorrect diagnosis at a different clinic:
We were contacted by a male patient who had received treatment for high blood pressure for the past eight years. His previous healthcare provider found it difficult to treat and control his blood pressure. After undergoing investigations for causes of secondary hypertension at The Coker Chest Clinic, the patient’s results revealed a secreting adenoma (a benign tumor originating in glandular tissue), which indicated Conn’s syndrome.
We organised an ultrasound of the abdomen to confirm the diagnosis, during which we also found a second secreting adenoma on the opposite side of the abdomen. We arranged for surgical removal of the adenomas. The patient successfully recovered and no longer has high blood pressure or associated symptoms.
