Skin Tag Removal

Skin tags are common, though completely harmless, skin growths that usually occur on the eyelids and neck, as well as in less visible places, such as in the armpits, groin folds, and under the breasts. They are as likely to be found on men as they are women, though middle-aged adults, particularly those suffering from obesity, are the most likely to get them. For many patients, particularly those living in a climate like Panama City where lighter clothing means more exposure, skin tags are an unsightly nuisance. While some smaller tags may spontaneously rub or fall off, most remain on the body once they are formed. Skin tags often occur during pregnancy. Those that are bothersome may be easily removed during or after pregnancy.

CAN SKIN TAGS BE REMOVED WITHOUT SCARRING?

Yes. We use a technique where the tags are snipped at the base and cauterized to prevent re-growth. We find that the removal of these unsightly growths is well worth the cost as they only get worse with age. It is easier to treat them when they are tiny.

Are you suffering from Chronic allergy symptoms such as: runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, red eyes, chronic sinusitis, or chronic asthma? Some allergies are perennial (meaning year round) and some are seasonal. Here at Florida Primary Care we do allergy testing and screening to determine the proper treatment for you.

When you have an allergy, your immune system is activated. However, the allergy may cause the immune system to become over-activated in various systems in your body. A non-regulated allergy can lead the immune system in the wrong direction such as asthma, or worse, an autoimmune disease.

Early diagnosis and intervention using an approach that integrates treatment options can stop the development of allergies into more serious disorders such as asthma, autoimmune, and immune-related diseases. As an example, diagnosing the cause of a toddler’s eczema can prevent rhinitis, allergies, and asthma as they grow older.

Diabetes Symptoms

The following symptoms of diabetes are typical. However, some people with type 2 diabetes have symptoms so mild that they go unnoticed.

Common symptoms of diabetes:

  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Feeling very hungry – even though you are eating
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Weight loss – even though you are eating more (type 1)
  • Tingling, pain, or numbness in the hands/feet (type 2)

Early detection and treatment of diabetes can decrease the risk of developing the complications of diabetes.

It can be difficult to know the difference between the flu or a cold. In many cases the symptoms are very similar. Additionally, getting sick between September and May, which is the influenza/flu season, makes it even harder to figure out. While initial symptoms for colds and flu look alike, the flu carries a much higher risk, which in some cases can be life-threatening. The only true way to know whether you have influenza or a common cold is to have a medical test that is specifically designed to identify the flu. Finding out early in the course of your illness allows time for effective medications and treatment.

Both a cold and the flu carry risk for complications.

Your cold can go into bronchitis or rarely pneumonia. In some cases, you may develop a sinus infection, however, a cold is a mild illness that doesn’t typically leave you too weak to fight off a developing problem. In most cases, if you are in good general health, a cold runs its course in seven to 10 days and is done.

Potential complications include:

  • Bacterial pneumonia
  • Dehydration
  • Sinus Infections
  • Ear Infections

If you have other health issues, such as heart, kidney or lung disorders, the flu can exacerbate those conditions.

Not all injuries require a trip to the emergency room. So for less severe cuts, bumps and bruises, skip the wait and walk in. Not only will we save you time and money, we’ll get you back on the path to healing and feeling better sooner.

Minor injury treatments:

  • Burns from heat or chemical exposure
  • Fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Removal of superficial foreign objects
  • Splints
  • Sprains
  • Stitches/Suturing/Stapling
  • Strains
  • Wound infection
  • x-ray

What Our Patients Say

Dr. Johnson is amazing. He has wonderful bed side manors and very good at explaining your diagnosis and treatment. His hands are simply magical. I came in a year ago and he resolved most of my pain. I’ve recommended friends and family to him. I’m a returning patient and would not go to any one else.
Kim G.
Doctor Johnson is on the mark. Staff is excellent. Treatment is working well and I have been improving every week. Best thing I have done for my health in a long time. Pain is not fun and life without it is much better. I do recommend Gulf Coast Chiropractic to my friends.
Ken K.
I’m a runner and I was having terrible foot pain that wouldn’t heal. I went to see Dr. Johnson and he diagnosed it, prescribed a treatment that fixed the problem and 10 days later I was back to running again.
Before the first appointment, I was able to fill out all the preliminary paperwork on my home computer. There’s no need to sit in the office for an hour filling out forms. It was very simple and streamlined to get me back to work as quick as possible.
John S.
As a former Special Operations solider, full time CrossFit athlete and Owner of Panhandle CrossFit I beat my body up on a regular basis. As a result of this I have lived with low back / neck tightness and pain for a number of years. I have seen 3 different Chiropractors and a number of massage/acupuncture/ and holistic healers. They were not able to do what Dr. Johnson did for me in a month! Literally 2-3 times per week, one month later I feel amazing! I am making great progress as an athlete under his care and he will continue to be the ONLY Chiro I recommend to my fiends and clients! On top of that, his staff was absolutely amazing. They were exceedingly helpful in getting scheduled and paperwork taken care of. I literally cannot say enough good things about Gulf Coast Chiropractic!!! Keep up the good work y’all!
Adam C.
Two weeks ago, I was at a dance,and was dancing when I heard a popping sound in my left hip area. I was in a lot of pain. I was scared that I would not be able to dance again. I called Dr. Johnson office, they worked me right in. Dr. Johnson and his staff were so compassionate. Dr. Johnson order X-ray to rule out any fractures etc. Dr. Johnson started me on a care plan, and since I have been under his care, I do not have any pain in the injured area.
I feel healthier, and I am back dancing every day.
Thank you so much. You and your wonderful staff have given me a new lease on life.
Vivian S.
Dr. Johnson is a great Doctor who listens to patients. He came highly recommended to myself and after meeting with him, I must agree. I would not go anywhere else.

Facility to anyone who is having trouble with their feet.
Robert C.
Most relief in four years of misery! My M.D. was very interested in what the treatment involved and impressed that I am off my pain prescription. Thanks!
Gerald K.
Extreme improvement in my mobility and quality of life, after being told, more than once, there is nothing that can be done. Dr. Johnson and his staff are excellent. Always happy and efficient. I cannot put into words the difference that not having agony with each step has made!
Holly H.
The staff is very hospitable and Dr. Johnson is very attentive to each specific need. I always look out for doctors who just “pencil whip” care and that is definitely not here. Everyone is fantastic and I am very comfortable as a patient here.
Meiko S.
All my problems have been addressed and resolved. The staff has been cooperative and helpful on every level. I have recommended Dr. Johnson to several co-workers.
Connie C.
Wheh I first came to Dr Johnson and his staff a number of months ago, I was in great pain. Within weeks, Dr Johnson and his staff had my pain level down considerably. The staff at Gulf Coast Chiropractic has always showed great concern for my comfort and treatment. They are a great and friendly staff that care for the patients of their office.
