Preventative care is key to maintaining your health. Annual checkups help you and your doctor identify and treat problems before they get serious. Before you are sick or injured is the perfect time to establish a relationship with a primary care physician and address any ongoing health issues.
A note about fasting:
We ask that you fast (no food, only water to drink) for 10-12 hours before your exam IF your exam is scheduled before noon. (If you have diabetes, fast only if your appointment is before 10:00 a.m.) For exams after noon, eat normally.
Many preventative care services are nearly 100% covered by insurance. Please click here to learn more about our billing & insurance information.
