Preventative Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care consists of services that are designed to prevent and detect health issues in the beginning stages. When you visit Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC for routine preventive care checkups, the team keeps track of your health and helps you stay well for a lifetime.

At each visit, your provider performs several evaluations to determine your health risks and needs. Once all of the information is gathered, they develop a personalized plan of care designed to minimize your risks of health issues and optimize your overall well-being. 

Regular visits also help you establish a trusting and lasting relationship with your provider.

What services are offered with preventive care?

  • Routine physicals
  • Vaccinations
  • Diabetes testing

  • Blood pressure screening

Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC also offers comprehensive health risk evaluations, disease prevention consultations, and health and wellness counseling to help with issues like weight management and smoking cessation.

The team also pays attention to early symptoms of disease and provides continuing care for chronic or acute illnesses.

Why is preventive care important?

In many cases, health conditions don’t show symptoms. That’s why preventive care is important. Preventive screenings can help your medical team discover issues that don’t present themselves unless you have a medical evaluation.

Detecting health issues early helps your provider identify concerns in the early stages. They can then quickly proceed to develop a customized treatment plan to prevent your condition from worsening and possibly eliminate it altogether. 

What are the benefits of preventive care?

The Your NEIGHBORHOOD CLINIC team takes a proactive role in reducing your risk of health issues with preventive medicine. The benefits are mostly about what it can help you avoid, such as:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Lung disease

The right treatment plan helps reduce your risk for a number of highly avoidable health conditions.
