Understand more about the medications you are taking and when you need to take them.
Have you received medication from your doctor and now you’re not entirely sure what you’re taking or how to safely take it? Do you have questions about the medication schedule you are currently on and whether it’s the right approach for managing your symptoms? Our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard understands how confusing medication can be and wants to demystify the entire experience so that you understand what you are taking and whether it’s truly right for your health.
When to Turn to RMS Consultation
There are many reasons that patients turn to us for care. Along with providing care and management for chronic conditions we also provide consultations regarding the medications you are currently taking. You may want to turn to us if:
- You have questions about the medications you are taking
- You want a second opinion about your current medication schedule
- You want to avoid medication if possible
- You are dealing with adverse side effects from your medication
- The medication is impacting your quality of life
- You are confused about how to take your medication
Whether you have questions or concerns about your medications, our medical doctor in Southfield, MI, can sit down with you and make recommendations regarding certain medications, alternative therapies and lifestyle changes that could improve your health. We will go through your medical history with you and then we will outline in full detail the recommendations we have for caring for your current illness, injury or condition. We can also recommend alternative medicines and supplements that could help with your current health status but will be safe to take with your current medications.
It’s important to understand that while we can provide recommendations for managing your health we will not prescribe medication or perform any of these therapies ourselves. It will be entirely up to you to bring these detailed recommendations with you to consult with your current doctor. Think of RMS Consultation as a second opinion that can put your mind at ease about the medical care you are getting.
From recovering from a serious illness to dealing with a long-term and traumatic injury, our Southfield, MI, physician can help you manage your symptoms and answer your questions about the types of medications you are taking.

Our habits have a profound impact on our health, from smoking and drinking to leading a sedentary lifestyle. Of course, there are simple changes you can make to your daily routine that can improve your health and we can help you determine the best lifestyle modifications to follow to reduce your risk for developing certain conditions as well as improving conditions you may already be dealing with.
Lose Excess Weight
Many Americans are battling with being overweight or obese and this can have a profound impact on your health. Being overweight can increase your risk for serious problems such as diabetes, heart attack or stroke. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly are two of the best options for helping shed those pounds.
Of course, we know that the first steps can be daunting. Taking to a doctor you trust can help you determine the best way to begin a new exercise regimen that you will actually stick with, as well as how to maintain a healthy diet.
Smoking and Drinking
These are two habits that can have serious ramifications for your health. It should go without saying that people who smoke or use tobacco products should quit as soon as possible. Smoking can impede healing, cause cancer and lead to a wide range of other serious health problems. Luckily, by quitting you can slowly reduce this risk.
While drinking isn’t something that you have to necessarily quit it’s a good idea to drink in moderation. This means no more than one glass a day for women and two glasses for men. Any more and you risk dealing with everything from weight gain to high cholesterol.
