Preventative Medicine Q&A
What is preventive medicine?
Preventive medicine focuses on identifying chronic health conditions in their earliest stages. The team at LibertyMed Health Group offers preventive medicine services to protect your health and reduce your risk factors for certain diseases.
Many preventive medicine screenings are a part of your annual physical. The physicians review your personal and family medical histories and your current health to determine if you need certain screenings.
What preventive medicine services are available?
At LibertyMed Health Group, you can access many advanced preventive health services and screenings for family members of all ages, including pediatric and geriatric testing. Available on-site preventive screenings include:
- Routine physicals
- Diabetes testing
- Pap smears
- Pelvic exams
- Osteoporosis screening
The physicians also provide immunizations to protect you and your family from conditions like measles, mumps, and the seasonal flu. Additional immunizations are available if you plan to travel outside the United States, so you can reduce your risk for certain diseases common in other areas of the world.
What are the benefits of preventive medicine?
The LibertyMed Health Group staff values the benefits of preventive medicine for reducing your risk factors for certain chronic diseases. They are skilled in identifying early warning signs of chronic health conditions like:
- Heart disease
- Lung disease
- Kidney disease
- High blood pressure
Many of these conditions won’t show symptoms until the disease is in advanced stages. Preventive screenings help the medical team evaluate your general health and pinpoint potential issues that require immediate treatment before you get sick.
By identifying these conditions in their earliest stages, your LibertyMed Health Group provider can get you started on a treatment plan to keep your condition well-controlled and prevent it from worsening.
The physicians offer preventive screenings in-house, so you don’t have to travel to other facilities to get testing. In the event that your tests reveal an underlying health condition or risk factors for disease, your LibertyMed Health Group provider customizes a care plan that focuses on your short-term and long-term health.
If it’s been longer than a year since your last physical exam, schedule a preventive medicine consultation at LibertyMed Health Group by calling the office or by requesting an appointment online today.
