Preventive Medicine

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is a proactive approach to health care. Instead of waiting for an illness or disease to arise, the aim of preventive medicine is to help patients minimize and avoid certain health risks. Preventive medicine providers take a whole-person approach to health care, focusing on a broad spectrum of patient needs. 

What is a well-visit?

Well-visits are an essential part of preventive medicine. Well-visits allow your Advance Medical Group provider to stay updated on your overall health. They also allow your provider to establish a record of your medical history, which is essential to making decisions about your long-term health.

Well-visits are important for patients of all ages. Health care providers use well-visits to help determine your risk for certain conditions like prostate cancer, breast cancer, and diabetes. 

What are the benefits of preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine can help you minimize and avoid your risk for certain illnesses. You can avoid some of the biggest health risks with proper diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices. Some of the conditions that preventive medicine can address include:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease

Screening and early detection are essential to successfully addressing these issues. With the right treatment plan, patients can greatly reduce their risk for a number of highly avoidable chronic conditions. 

How does preventive medicine work?

In order to reap the benefits of preventive medicine, you have to talk openly with your Advance Medical Group provider about your lifestyle and medical history. 

To get an accurate look at your overall health, your provider also performs a number of evaluations like a physical exam to help determine your health risks and needs. From this information, you and your provider develop a personalized care plan designed to help minimize your risks and optimize your overall health and well-being. 

The preventive health specialists at Advance Medical Group offer convenient, patient-centered care with a focus on overall health and wellness. The team develops custom treatment plans to help patients achieve their health goals.
