    Preventive Care

    Information about our focus on prevention and health maintenance including physical exams.

    As internal medicine providers, we are skilled in the management of complicated medical illnesses.  However, our philosophy places a priority on the prevention and early detection and treatment of illness to help our patients live longer and more comfortable lives.  As part of a preventive annual visit we will suggest exams, immunizations, tests and lifestyle changes that we feel are important to disease prevention and health maintenance.

    Your provider will be able to advise you about which preventive services are right for you based on your age, gender, health status, and health goals.

    Insurance coverage for this service varies among insurance plans.  It is recommended that you check with your insurance carrier to determine your benefits for routine physicals.  Medicare does not cover physical examinations although they may cover any problems that are addressed during the physical.  Please help us be aware of any specific requirements of your insurance company.
