Preventive health care catches potential health problems early enough to make changes so they don’t become a serious threat. Sometimes that means making lifestyle changes, like losing weight or changing your diet, to lower the risk for diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes. Other times, medical treatment may be needed to protect your future health.
You can’t prevent disease and stay as healthy as possible unless you see a doctor for checkups. Your physician will track the signs, watch for changes, and run lab tests when necessary to be sure you’re not at risk for problems. For women that means getting regular physical and gynecological examinations, services that are available from Dr. Willis.
