Preventive Health Services

Preventive care helps detect and prevent serious disease before it becomes a major health problem. 

Routine preventive health care includes screenings, check-ups, counseling, immunizations to help prevent illness, or disease.

Preventive Care Benefits for Adults

Health care insurance plans must cover preventive services, often without charging you a copayment or coinsurance. Take advantage of screening services offered to help you stay healthy and available for your family and friends.

A Family Physician is trained in preventive care of all ages and genders to help optimize your well being. We use evidence based screening tools to ensure you are ahead of the game when it comes to prevention. We also focus on lifestyle counseling to prevent illness associated with our choices and environment. We encourage immunizations to help prevent disease from becoming severe.
