Preventive Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is an essential aspect of living a healthy, long life. Preventive care aims to screen for illness and disease before symptoms develop to help you avoid serious problems.

The practice begins your preventive care at the core of your overall health — how you eat. Your diet is essential to your life and can make or break your body in several ways.

Screenings are another aspect of preventive care that helps our physicians find severe conditions before they become a bigger problem. Standard screenings for preventive care include your blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer.

Healthy lifestyle choices are the first step in managing overall health and wellness. The practice provides counseling to allow you to change your decisions to include healthy choices and daily physical activity.

What’s involved in preventive care?

Preventive care is as easy as it sounds — you come in for your appointments to allow our physicians to screen you for conditions before they occur.

There’s a lot involved in preventive care, including checking in on both your physical and mental health. The practice offers several preventive screenings based on your overall health and age, which include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Immunizations
  • Diabetes
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol

The providers also offer screenings for mental health disorders like anxiety and depression. They provide each patient with a yearly physical exam to give peace of mind and evaluate for any changes in health.

Who needs preventive care?

Every single person, no matter what age, can benefit from preventive care. Kids need regular physical checkups from birth to evaluate their health, growth, and development.

Kids also require regular vaccinations to prevent serious illnesses and diseases from developing. These screenings should continue regularly throughout childhood and the teen years.

Adults should also have yearly preventive screenings, especially as they get older. It’s essential to your long-term health to watch for specific risks, including high blood pressure and heart disease.

The practice is also happy to offer annual wellness exams for older adults with Medicare or Medicare Advantage for easy access to crucial screenings.
