Preventative Care Q & A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is medical attention that aims to safeguard your body against medical problems. With regular, thorough preventive care from the team at RevaMed Primary Care Associates, you help yourself avoid a wide range of acute and chronic health conditions. 

Annual checkups, well-woman visits, and employer-required physicals are all examples of preventive care, designed to screen you for specific health challenges. Some of the conditions for which RevaMed Primary Care Associates screens include:

  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Relevant types of cancer
  • Sexually transmitted diseases

By regularly checking your body for any possible health problems, RevaMed Primary Care Associates ensures you catch conditions early. That way, treatment is the easiest and most effective. 

Is preventive care important?

Without preventive care, you could increase your risk for health challenges without even knowing you’re doing so. 

Take high blood pressure, for example. Often called the silent killer, it doesn’t exhibit symptoms in most people until it’s extremely serious. High blood pressure heightens your risk for complications, including:

  • Heart attack and failure
  • Stroke
  • Aneurysm
  • Dementia

Fortunately, identifying high blood pressure is easy. Each time you visit RevaMed Primary Care Associates, the team takes your blood pressure. 

This way, they can identify upward trends in your blood pressure levels and help you put the proper measures in place (often simple lifestyle changes) to reduce your blood pressure back down to healthy levels. 

How do I get preventive care?

The first step in getting the preventive care you need is making an appointment at RevaMed Primary Care Associates. 

During your appointment, you talk with a dedicated health care provider about your personal and family health history. You discuss your lifestyle choices (e.g., what you eat, how much you sleep) and any health questions you have. 

If you’ve been experiencing an unusual symptom, for example, bring it up with your RevaMed Primary Care Associates practitioner. With all of this information, they tailor preventive care for you by screening you for any health conditions for which you have a heightened risk. 

Regular preventive care gives you the power to be proactive about your health, making sure you’re always informed about the state of your body.
