Adolescents (15 and Up)

Preventative care is important during the adolescent years in order to record any physical or mental changes that may occur. It is the perfect time to educate teens not only on their physical growth, sexual development and social influences, but also on developing a healthy lifestyle through good nutritional choices and exercise.  We recommend the following preventive services:  

  • Annual doctor visit
  • Immunizations
  • Patient education on physical growth and the development of the body
  • Patient education on healthy diet and weight management information
  • Patient education on the benefits of exercise
  • Sex education including sexually transmitted diseases and HIV
  • Discussion regarding eating disorders
  • Discussion regarding alcohol or drug abuse

Adults

Studies show that adults who get preventative health care live longer and healthier lives. We recommend adults visit their doctor each year for a physical, to screen for diseases, determine the risks of possible future medical problems, update vaccinations and promote a healthy lifestyle.

  • Annual doctor visits – check blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar
  • Immunizations
  • Cancer screenings
  • Discussion of lifestyle factors – weight, diet, exercise
  • Discussion of additional lifestyle factors – alcohol, smoking, drug abuse

Men’s Wellness

Did you know that on average, men live six less years than women? A large contributing factor to this is the fact that men are less likely to visit their doctor for preventive care. Preventive medical exams help men to maintain good health, as well as offers your physician an opportunity to detect potential problems early and treat them before they become more serious.

Our physicians are experienced in providing high quality medical care tailored specifically for men. We provide the following preventative services for men:

  • Annual Physical Exam
  • Immunizations
  • Prostate Cancer Screening
  • Testicular Exam
  • Discussion of lifestyle changes – smoking, drinking, diet and exercise habits
  • Referral for Colonoscopy
  • Discussion of injury prevention
