Preventive Care Q & A

What is preventive care?

The preventive care services available at Zidon Internal Medicine focus on optimizing your overall health and reducing your risk factors for chronic disease.

The goal of preventive care is to identify serious health issues in the earliest stages, when the condition is typically easier to treat successfully. 

Preventive care visits are also a great time to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your physical, mental, and emotional health.

What preventive care services are available?

To meet the needs of adult patients, Zidon Internal Medicine offers a wide range of preventive care services in-office, including:

  • Wellness visits
  • Annual physicals
  • School physicals
  • Sports physicals
  • Employment physicals
  • Vaccinations
  • Women’s health exams

The providers also offer evaluations for mental health disorders like anxiety and depression.

You should schedule preventive health exams at least once a year to stay on top of your health, even if you’re feeling fine. If you’re ill or have unexplained symptoms that need a diagnosis, you should schedule a sick visit with the Zidon Internal Medicine providers.

What happens during a preventive care visit?

During your initial preventive care visit at Zidon Internal Medicine, the providers spend time reviewing your personal and family medical histories to identify existing health concerns or risk factors for chronic medical conditions.

They also perform a comprehensive physical exam and note important details about your health, including your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Lung function
  • Body temperature
  • Visual acuity
  • Hearing

The providers offer in-office services that focus on women’s health, including pelvic exams, Pap smears, and breast exams. They can refer you for additional diagnostic testing services like mammograms based on your age and your risk factors for breast cancer.

Will I need bloodwork during my preventive care appointment?

You may need bloodwork or other diagnostic testing to identify underlying health issues like diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease.

The Zidon Internal Medicine providers can request these tests based on your medical history, your age, and your existing health. They also offer mental health screenings to identify signs of depression and anxiety that need medical attention.

If you’re not up-to-date on your immunizations, they can administer vaccines to protect against chickenpox, measles, COVID-19, and the seasonal flu virus.

To schedule a routine health evaluation, call Zidon Internal Medicine today or request a consultation online.
