Preventative Healthcare Q & A

What is preventive health care?

Preventive health care is a branch of medicine focused on taking preemptive measures to improve your overall health and wellbeing. Many health insurance providers offer a variety of preventive health care services, including shots and screening tests at no extra cost, allowing you to access the medical care you need, without having to worry about how you’ll pay for it. 

What are some common preventive health care measures?

At Aspen Medical Group, Inc. the team offers a comprehensive suite of preventive health care measures, including, but not limited to:

Hypertension screenings

High blood pressure is a dangerous problem that affects millions of Americans. Left untreated, high blood pressure increases your risk of stroke and heart attack. Monitoring your numbers can alert you to potential problems and help you take steps to keep your numbers in check.  

Physical exams

An annual physical exam presents an opportunity for you to check in on your overall physical health. Even if you feel relatively healthy, it’s still important to visit the doctor at least once a year. Many problems, such as hypertension and high cholesterol, don’t present obvious symptoms. In addition, a physical exam allows you to build a relationship with your doctor.  

Immunizations

Immunizations protect you, your family, and the community around you from serious, transmittable diseases, including measles, mumps, hepatitis, and the flu. If you travel outside of the country for work, you might also benefit from immunizations.

Pap smears

A Pap smear is a preventive screening measure used to determine a woman’s risk of cervical cancer. All women between the ages of 21-65 should participate in a Pap smear at least once every three years. 

Well-child exams

A well-child exam is a preventive health care measure that monitors your son or daughter's physical and mental development. It also allows you to discuss any concerns you have with a trusted pediatrician.  

What type of preventive health care is right for me?

To determine the preventive health care measures from which you’ll benefit most, make an appointment with the team at Aspen Medical Group, Inc. Following a physical exam, discussion of your health goals, and review of your medical history, the team can make recommendations that align with your individual needs.
