Preventative Care FAQs

What is preventative care?

Preventative care involves measures taken to prevent diseases, rather than treating them after they occur. This includes routine check-ups, screenings, immunizations, and patient counseling to prevent illnesses, diseases, and other health problems.

Why is preventative care important?

Preventative care is vital as it helps detect health issues early when they are easier to treat, prevents serious illnesses, reduces healthcare costs over time, and ultimately extends life expectancy by promoting better health standards.

What types of screenings are included in preventative care?

Preventative care screenings can vary based on age, sex, and risk factors, but commonly include blood pressure and cholesterol tests, diabetes checks, cancer screenings (such as mammograms and colonoscopies), bone density assessments, and screenings for sexually transmitted infections.

How often should I have a preventative care visit?

The frequency of the visits can depend on your age, health history, and risk factors. Generally, an annual wellness visit is recommended to discuss any changes in your health and update your preventive care plan accordingly.
