Family Practice Integrated Approach
At Pucillo Family Practice, P.A./NRG Wellness Center, the doctors, and providers have a combined seventy-five (75) years of experience in the Fort Bend area. Our clinicians are astute at treating both acute and chronic medical problems, as well as identifying the preventive measures that pick up diseases before they become a problem.
One of our main interests at Pucillo Family Practice is cardiovascular and diabetes treatment and prevention since those two illnesses account for more deaths in the U.S. than all other illnesses combined. Our providers use the most modern medications to attack these conditions but are also ready to work with patients who are willing, when appropriate, to take a more natural approach and make necessary lifestyle changes in place of medication. In other words, rather than being a “one-answer-fits-all practice,” we tailor our treatment to the individual patient, working together with them as a team towards a personalized treatment goal. Our female providers pride themselves in women’s health issues and Dr. Pucillo has been certified by the Hotze Health & Wellness Center in bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Pucillo Family Practice is at the cutting edge of the medical model shift. Our practice has been electronic for the past few years and we have met the standards of the voluntary physician quality reporting initiative (PQRI) to the government since the measures were established in 2007. We also participate in the government’s new Accountable Care Organization (ACO) and are working towards becoming an accredited Patient-Centered Medical Home – a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients, their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family.
At Pucillo Family Practice we care for our patients’ time and convenience. To accommodate today’s busy lifestyles and schedules, we have extended practice hours and are open from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday and from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday our hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
Our practice endeavors to accommodate our patients by performing as much testing in-house as possible, including laboratory testing such as basic blood tests, pregnancy tests, glucose tolerance, strep screens and urinalysis. However, we do not limit ourselves to basic testing and also incorporate Advanced Lipid Testing which includes state-of-the art analysis of patient’s cholesterol profiles, as well as identifying individual inflammatory vascular markers which are early indicators of diabetes and renal disease. Together with IMTs (Intima Media Testing) our patients can rest assured they will not be blindsided by any symptomatic cardiovascular problems. Although we are not an imaging center, there is no need to travel to an outside facility to obtain a diagnosis of fractures, dislocations or serious injuries. Our highly-trained and experienced X-ray technician can take basic X-rays right in our office which can, in many cases, alleviate patient concerns. See, tab “Services” for “X-Ray On-Site.”
We also perform a plethora of advanced diagnostic testing in-house such as Allergy Testing, EMGs, Urodynamics, VNG Balance Testing, Nerve Conduction Studies, Cognitive Testing and Sleep Studies. For a more detailed explanation of these studies, please look under the tab “Services” for “Advanced Diagnostic.”
The providers also provide caring and effective treatment to injured workers as well as return-to-work evaluations for various large and small corporations in the Fort Bend, Sugar Land and Missouri City areas. Drug screening and vaccination services, as well as full-scale executive physicals, are available.
Another positive aspect of our family practice is that we partner with Breco Research, Ltd. and are actively involved with major pharmaceutical companies in conducting in-house research trials on new, soon-to-be-available medications. We are proud to be helping these companies provide patients with safe and effective medications. Pucillo Family Practice, P.A./NRG Wellness Center and Breco Research are looking for volunteers to participate in the ongoing pharmaceutical studies in our office. You will be compensated for your time and travel. Also, medication, examinations, and blood work are at no cost to you.
