Magdalena Rodriguez, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner in Las Vegas, NV

Magdalena is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Anytime I’m not feeling well she shows genuine concern about my health (like doctors are supposed to!).

Siempre siento que Magdalena realmente se preocupa por mi salud. Se toma su tiempo para responder a todas mis preguntas y se asegura de que lo entiendo completamente.

My husband and I are so pleased with Ms. Rodriguez’ care. I will continue seeing her as my Primary Care Professional. After all these years I found a place to trust.

Ms. Rodriguez is the most caring, good listener and exceptional Healthcare provider. She is concerned about how her patients understand and follow their treatment.

WHAT IS CONSIDERED A CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITION?

A chronic condition is any health condition that is on-going and generally lasts more than 6 months. In contrast to an acute health condition, which is severe and sudden like an injury or broken bone where the injury heals and the pain goes away, a chronic health condition is long-lasting, develops over time, and symptoms must be managed on a daily basis and can affect daily life.

A few examples of chronic health conditions that require chronic disease management care:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • Arthritis
  • COPD
  • Heart disease
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Smoking-related health issues
  • Obesity
  • Stroke
  • Mood disorders (such as depression and bipolar)
  • Hypothyroidism

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING CHRONIC DISEASE MANAGEMENT CARE?

Having chronic disease management care means having a provider who can oversee the care of all your health conditions. This means, rather than going to various doctors or specialists for various health concerns, all you need is to communicate with one provider. As a board-certified family nurse practitioner, Magdalena has over 30 years of combined nursing experience managing numerous health conditions.

WHAT ARE THE BEST METHODS TO PREVENT CHRONIC DISEASE?

Maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle are the best method for preventing chronic disease and is highly recommended by Magdalena. Knowing your family medical history as well gives you a perfect starting point to create the best plan of action against the risk of possible chronic disease, which can be identified with a physical exam or health screening with Crescent Health.
