Desert Senita employs a team of family practice physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who see patients of all ages. They are open to take new patients and are available for physicals (including CDL and sports physicals), well-child exams, well-woman care such as annual Pap exams and other screenings, and provide continuity care to those patients with chronic medical problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Of course, Desert Senita providers also see patients for acute illnesses and injuries, including for such common things as the flu or for treatment of lacerations (cuts). Our family practice providers work closely with dental, behavioral health, and health education staff to provide the most comprehensive care possible to those patients that have medical problems such as diabetes, coronary heart disease, and elevated cholesterol.
Some additional services provided by Desert Senita include minor surgery such as removals and referrals to specialty care. Desert Senita also has a limited number of visiting specialists who come to the health center to provide specialty care on-site. Currently Desert Senita hosts a visiting cardiologist and podiatrist once a month, and also has ultrasound services available approximately twice per month.
