Preventive care lets your doctor find potential health problems BEFORE you feel sick. It includes all measures to ensure wellbeing and prevent long term consequences from family history and/or disease.
Preventive care can include immunizations, lab tests and other diagnostic testing, physical exams and prescriptions. All of these services help your doctor understand your symptoms or diagnose your illness. These visits focus on prevention and allow our physicians to work closely with you to plan for your future health.
