WHAT WE DO
Encompass 360 is a genomics-based, precision medicine clinic that aims to take care of you, the individual patient. We realize that treating you as a piece of the larger population is not an effective way to take care of you. By knowing your genetic makeup, the results of extensive blood work, and by understanding your health background and preferences, we can precisely go after and treat, even prevent, disease before it ever happens. We believe that you are a unique individual, and to truly know how to help you optimize YOUR health and give YOU life-long longevity outcomes, we really need to know your genetic information. We recognize that we are all different. Shouldn’t any approach to making YOU better start with an understanding of what YOU are made of?
Traditional medicine commonly fails to address the complete care of patients. In general, the majority of its emphasis is on the treatment of chronic, established disease and not on prevention of disease and making patients’ lives truly better. There is often times a lack of emphasis on disease prevention and not much of a focus on health optimization and longevity. The general formula, with the exception of some preventive medicine, is to treat disease X when it is detected and already adversely affecting the patient. Patients have become increasingly frustrated with this approach, and they are looking for alternatives or adjuncts to address health optimization and longevity. It should be noted that genomics-based, precision medicine does not aim to replace traditional medicine. It aims to be a vital supplement to medical culture and to allow primary care physicians an additive approach to enriching the lives of their patients.
You might be thinking, “Why would I want to join Encompass 360? I already have medical insurance that I pay for.” Encompass 360 is the first of its kind in the Tri-cities and surrounding areas. We focus on disease prevention, mitigation, health optimization, and education for the population. There is growing evidence that health and wellness optimization plans, like Encompass 360, actually reduce the cost of out of pocket medical expenses. There is an even more important reason to join us: our approach is not found in most primary care offices. This approach to medicine is just beginning to be taught in medical schools. Our DNA-based approach to you and your specific needs will become the future in medical practice, but for now, it is very much an underutilized practice; and one that has consequences for patients.
Encompass 360 recognizes every patient is different, and treatment recommendations should be individualized and not based on population-based studies.
