Preventative Care

You can decrease your chances of getting a life-threatening disease or serious illness by taking part in preventative care.

What is Preventative Care?

Our preventative care services include screenings, tests, scans vaccinations, medical advice, and annual check-ups. These measures help detect health problems such as diseases before they become serious. It is important to take part in consistent preventative care even when you are in good health, because you might not be aware of potential problems. Our physicians take into account factors such as your family medical history, age, sex, and your current health to determine the best type of care for you. We are here to keep you healthy.

Preventative Care Health Plan Coverage

Most health plans completely cover basic preventative care such as annual check-ups, certain tests, and immunizations. Some services might also be partially covered. Contact your health provider to see exactly what is or isn’t covered for you.

Types of Preventative Care

  • Annual Check-Ups

    We recommend you schedule a yearly check-up with one of our physicians to do regular tests, screenings, and other standard care. By checking in with a doctor yearly, you can make sure you and your physician are very aware of your health. If you have any health concerns, you should see your physician more often than annually.

  • Immunizations and Shots

    We provide standard vaccinations and shots as part of our preventative care services. These include immunizations for diseases such as polio, Hepatitis B, and Diphtheria, as well as the yearly flu shot.

  • Medical Advice

    Our physicians are all very knowledgeable, and will offer you personalized advice on lifestyle, medical care, and medication. Your physician will get to know you personally so they can help you best.

  • Screenings, Tests, and Scans

    There are many types of helpful screenings, tests, and scans. They can help detect diseases such as diabetes, various types of cancer, or heart problems. Our physicians do whatever tests, screenings or scans are relevant to your age group, sex, or other areas of concern.

Good Health is Part of Preventative Care

While preventative care is very useful for catching medical problems early, there are additional steps you can personally take to reduce your chances of a serious illness or disease. These steps don’t replace regular preventative care, but they are still very important. These include:
  • A Healthy Diet
  • Physical Activity
  • Avoiding Excessive Alcohol Use
  • Avoiding Tobacco Use
