What Is Preventive Care and Why Is It Important?
Preventive care includes test, screenings, and exams designed to detect potential medical issues, often before the patient has displayed any symptoms. A preventive care visit is different than most other office visits, due to the fact that the patient is not visiting to address a specific medical issue, but rather receiving an overall assessment of their health.
As we age, the importance of monitoring your health becomes more and more important, even if you feel completely healthy. Early detection of a many chronic illnesses and disorders is crucial for increasing the opportunity for successful treatment. Regular check-ups, screenings, and immunizations can help protect you and your family from a wide range of potential health problems.

It’s recommended that the average person receive preventative check-ups and screenings at least once a year. Depending on your age, gender and medical history, you may benefit from more frequent visits.
