Always take care to seek routine preventive care.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You know the saying – and we encourage you to heed it.

Why is regular preventive care so important? Preventive care focuses on maintaining your health, and can help you avoid serious health problems down the road. It may include immunizations, vaccines, physical evaluations, lab work, x-rays and health screenings.

During a preventive visit, your doctor will determine what services are appropriate for you – based on factors such as your age, gender, overall health status, personal health history and your current symptoms or chronic health issues. As your healthcare partner, your doctor will work with you to manage your health, and identify any issues early on. This can help to prevent an issue from becoming a chronic condition.
