A major factor in staying the healthiest version of yourself is by visiting your doctor often enough to detect and prevent chronic illnesses. Many extremely common long-term illnesses do not present any alarming issues until irreversible damage is done and secondary issues arise. Issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and fatty liver disease are conditions that go largely unnoticed when they first appear but can cause reduced organ function, chronic pain, and even shorten one’s lifetime. A yearly physical examination is recommended, including blood tests. For your convenience, we draw your blood in our Clinic, saving you a trip to the laboratory. Primary care physicians are the first stop for your overall health and are usually less expensive than consulting with a specialist for an individual issue. Studies have shown that patients with easy access to a primary care physician typically spend less on health services and have better overall health. This is because regular Primary Care visits help avoid those costly medical problems that can appear if not prevented or treated early. An annual physical exam, including blood tests, is recommended.
