What Is Preventive Care?
Preventive care is any visit you make to the doctor when you're feeling well to help prevent health problems before you show symptoms. We pride ourselves in providing care in a comfortable and friendly environment that is convenient for you, whether you are struggling with symptoms or just trying to be proactive against illness. Some examples of preventive care include:
- Annual checkups
- Well-child visits
- Screening tests
Screening tests screen for diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes and look for future disease risks. Some procedures, like colonoscopies, are preventive measures that can also help treat you. Preventive visits are recommended for your health and can also include counseling. Advice like nutritional counseling and an exercise program are also part of preventive care to keep you healthy.
Why Is Preventive Care Important?
The CDC estimates that 7 out of 10 Americans die each year from chronic diseases that could have been prevented by leading a healthier lifestyle and getting proper medical care. Regular screenings help prevent disease with early detection. Annual physicals are also important opportunities to talk with your doctor and ask questions about your health.
We encourage you to come to your regular physicals with any questions you have about your physical health and we want you to be comfortable talking about any kind of symptoms you're having. Preventive care in Cypress, TX, keeps you healthy and saves lives.
