We offer our patients preventative health examinations (“PHEs”) at regular intervals to ensure they receive appropriate screening. You will be asked to have your screening tests done before your appointment so your doctor can review the results with you.
For patients with complex or chronic medical problems, the PHE may include a dedicated visit with a nurse who specializes in preventative health care, to help develop strategies for sustainable lifestyle changes including weight loss, nutrition, exercise, improved mental health, and smoking cessation. Your combined total time with your nurse and doctor for a complex PHE may be an hour or more.
All PHEs include a complete physical examination by your physician, a review of your test results, and if necessary the development of an individualized follow-up plan.
