Preventive Care Recommendations Tailored to Your Specific Needs
Preventive care is gaining more and more attention in the healthcare industry – and for good reason. At Florida Medical Clinic, we believe that being proactive is preferable to being reactive; that’s why we offer a comprehensive range of preventive services to help patients reduce their risk of developing avoidable medical conditions, while learning what’s “normal” for their bodies so that any unusual changes can be promptly noticed and addressed.
While it’s true that the occasional injury or illness is unavoidable, preventive care can go a long way in precluding conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. At Florida Medical Clinic, we offer comprehensive preventive care consultations, with services including:
- Annual physicals to monitor weight, blood pressure, reflexes, and vital signs
- Comprehensive metabolic panel testing to evaluate organ function and check for signs of kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, and hypertension
- Cholesterol testing
- Mental health screenings
- Individualized education programs regarding sun safety, proper nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight, and smoking cessation
If, during a preventive care visit or well-patient checkup, our physicians notice anything that warrants a more in-depth examination, consulting with one of our advanced care departments is simple. At Florida Medical Clinic, we have more than 30 specialized programs. For instance, our dermatology team can check abnormal moles for signs of cancer, our cardiologists can run cardiac function tests and provide individualized recommendations for better heart health, and our obstetrics and gynecology program can schedule annual pap smears and other well-woman services. Because a patient’s comprehensive records are shared through an innovative electronic medical record, our entire team is able to keep an eye on – and help improve – the patient’s whole-body health.
