Everyone would agree that if they could avoid getting sick, they would. But we often don’t think about going to the doctor when we’re healthy. The best way to prevent diseases from affecting your health is to visit your internist for preventive health care.
What Is Preventive Healthcare?
Also referred to as preventive medicine, the purpose of these medical services is to take proper measures to ensure that a patient remains free of the physical and mental disorders that can be brought on by genetics, environmental factors, and your lifestyle.
Millions of people die from illnesses that could have been prevented, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Our goal is to to help you arm yourself with both knowledge and quality medical care, even while you’re healthy, to prevent these illnesses from developing.
What Can I Do?
One way people of all ages from can prevent certain disorders is by coming in for regular checkups with their internist. Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms and feel perfectly fine, these routine visits can screen for potential issues. We’ll make sure you are up to date on your immunizations, and help to alter your lifestyle and habits to improve your quality of life.
Many conditions, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, can be “silent killers”. Often, patients only discover that they have these conditions by coming in for a standard wellness visit.
Your healthcare provider will tell you how often you should visit for check-ups. This may vary, particularly if you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic disorder. While adopting good habits can reduce your chances of contracting certain illnesses, your internist is also here to make sure that you remain as healthy as possible!
