What is chronic disease management?
Chronic disease management is a health care service that focuses on treating chronic diseases and preventing complications that can affect patient’s long-term health.
Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist medical team diagnose and treat a variety of complex chronic diseases including:
- Thyroid disease

The Naperville Internist team focuses on identifying signs of disease in the earliest stages, and customizing a treatment plan to manage patient’s symptoms. The team also works closely with patients on a long-term basis to ensure their condition is well-controlled and to minimize risk factors for serious health complications.
What chronic disease management services are available?
Through a physical exam and diagnostic testing, our team assesses the severity of patient’s conditions and determine the best course of treatment for their needs.
If patients have risk factors for a chronic disease, such as a family history of skin cancer or uncontrolled blood sugar levels, Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville internist team may suggest routine screenings to identify early warning signs of disease. Screenings may involve diagnostic imaging tests like X-rays or bloodwork to evaluate general health.
Dr. Marwaha and the physician team can prescribe medications or other therapies to treat disease. They will continue to monitor treatment in the long term and can work on lifestyle changes, nutritional counseling, and fitness regimens to improve and protect overall health.
