Preventive Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is preemptive health care. Instead of reacting to symptoms, preventive care looks for changes in your health that could indicate a potential health problem before symptoms arise.

At Passion Health Primary Care, the team assesses your risk of developing certain diseases, including diabetes and heart disease, by evaluating things like:

  • Your weight
  • Smoking history
  • Use of alcohol
  • Dietary habits
  • Family medical history

Preventive care doesn’t just look for problems that contribute to disease. Your provider can also help you minimize these risks that make you vulnerable to chronic disease and illness.

What services are included in preventive care?

Preventive health care services involve maintaining detailed health records, including weight, oxygen saturation, heart rate, and temperature. Regular monitoring of basic vitals can help your provider notice changes that occur over time that might indicate a health concern.

Passion Health Primary Care offers several preventive care services:

  • Physical exams
  • Immunizations
  • Cancer screenings
  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Diabetes screenings
  • Cholesterol screenings

You also benefit from allergy screenings and treatment. Your provider can offer nutritional advice and exercise recommendations to help you achieve and maintain healthy body weight.

Smoking and excessive alcohol use are risk factors for chronic disease. Passion Health Primary Care team can help improve your overall health and wellness.

How do I benefit from preventive care?

Preventive care tracks changes in your health from year to year. It assesses your risk of developing chronic disease and gives you the chance to make changes before you suffer serious health consequences.

Many chronic diseases are preventable if you change your behaviors and lifestyles at the first signs of concern. Routine blood work, cancer screenings, and physicals help identify potential health problems in their earliest stages when treatment is typically most effective.

Regular preventive care visits also help you build a relationship with your Passion Health Primary Care provider. You get the resources you need to stay healthy and physically active at all stages of life.
