Last Precision Medicine Seminar – July 31

By now, you have surely heard about our new Precision Genomic Medicine program which launched May. Since launching, we have had a number of patients take advantage of the program through Pharmacogenetic and Comprehensive genetic testing. Patients found out several things about their health that would would have been impossible to detect otherwise.

I will be holding one final information session this Summer, on July 31. If you want to hear more, please join me at the office for the talk. Please RSVP at the link below.

Sponsoring JCC Austin

I am excited to announce that in July my practice, Partners in Health, has started sponsoring our local Austin JCC organization. The Shalom Austin JCC has been a great resource for my family over the years, and also has been very good for the community of Northwest Austin, serving everyone from families with young children to the less fortunate. They are doing some good work, and we were happy to sign up both as a corporate sponsor, and as a corporate donor for their Generations capital campaign.

I have a number of current patients that are JCC members. We are also welcoming new ones. If you are interested, please visit our JCC membership page for more information.

Happy Fourth of July!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Fourth of July, whether you a choosing fireworks, hot dogs, parades, the Willie Nelson picnic, or all of the above!

Our office is closed on the Fourth, but of course you can reach me as always via mobile, text, or email.

Full House at Precision Medicine Talk

We had a full house at our last Precision Medicine talk! Lots of great questions and interaction about the important role of genetics as part of an overall program to live a healthier life.

If you missed our June seminars, based on the high demand I am planning to give another one in this summer. I will also post a video online.

As always, contact us with any questions.

Precision Medicine Information

I am excited about this week’s Precision Medicine sessions. We have one session on Thursday evening and also Saturday morning.

If you are interested there are still some seats available, and you can sign up here.

We will be talking about the science behind the growth of Precision Genomic Medicine, and will be discussing the various genetic tests that are on the market. I will be giving away a Pharmacogenetic Test and some copies of a Precision Medicine book.

I am so excited about the program that I wanted to open it up to former patients as well, for a limited time. So we are offering special test pricing through 7/31/2019. After that, I will be limiting the tests to patients established in my practice.

I came across an good book on the subject of Precision Medicine, The Personalized Medicine Revolution: How Diagnosing and Treating Disease Are About to Change Forever. The book talks about how genetic techniques are changing the practice of medicine and your health in a revolutionary way. I will have a few copies at the information sessions, and if you are interested in a free copy I can order one for you.

Sign up here to attend.

 

Precision Medicine Press Announcement

AUSTIN, Texas /PRNewswire/ — Recently transitioning from a traditional medical practice model to a concierge practice approach, Dr. Roxana Rhodes continues to redefine customized personal health care. One of the first practices in the region to offer Precision Medicine, Dr. Rhodes’ Partners in Health integrates this new medical approach to provide comprehensive personalized care for each patient’s unique genetics, environment and lifestyle.

As science and technology evolve, and more conclusive studies emerge in support of Precision Medicine, even more patients are able to afford and benefit from incorporating genetic testing into their general health care.

“There are trillions of cells in our bodies that are defined by 3.2 billion DNA pairs, making each one of us truly unique, so we shouldn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to our health care,” said Dr. Rhodes. “With Precision Medicine, we are now able to use advanced, scientifically-proven sequencing techniques that provide clear personalized results with actionable information.”

Precision Medicine Information Sessions

We are launching our Precision Genomic Medicine program in May!

Precision Medicine is a new medical approach where doctors tailor care to each patient’s unique genetic makeup, environment, and lifestyle. Precision Medicine and its heavy focus on human genetics is now integrated into my practice, which gives us important tools to prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide range of diseases. I am personally very excited about bringing this approach to my patients, as I believe it represents both the present and future of healthcare.

For patients that want to understand the scientific detail behind this new approach, we will be holding two patient information sessions:

Precision Medicine Information Session #1
Thu, May 30, 2019
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM CDT
Sign up

Precision Medicine Information Session #2
Sat, June 1, 2019
10:00 AM – 11:30 AM CDT
Sign up

We are now 100% Paperless!

I am very pleased to announce that our office is now 100% paperless in terms of your patient records – the picture is of our last 3 boxes of paper records being sent to the shredder. All records have been transferred to our state of the art Electronic Medical Records system, and are available to you on your patient portal. This has been an important goal of mine for some time, as Electronic records are very helpful to patient care:

  • Your records are available to me and your other medical providers 24×7. If an emergency comes up, I can quickly coordinate your care with the hospital and any specialists.
  • The records are also available to you the patient to access at your convenience – and you can alert me if anything is missing or incorrect.
  • Your records are backed up to secure cloud storage and are safe in the event of fire or some other problem at our office.

Thank you to my staff member Suzanne who was instrumental in getting the project completed.

Happy Doctor’s Day!

Happy Doctor’s Day to my fellow physicians!

To honor the day, here is one of my favorite quotes:


I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
