How Preventive Screenings Can Help Keep You Well

Serious medical conditions like hypertension, diabetes and cancers all come with early warning signs. In many cases, catching these conditions early improves your chances for effective treatment. Regular preventive screenings give you and your family care doctor an opportunity to keep track of your health and find potential problems early.

At Nation's Best Family Health Care, our family medicine doctors provide regular health care, including preventive screenings, for patients from our location in Panama City, Florida. Here are just a few of the ways that Dr. Roman Nation and his team can keep you well with preventive screenings.

Annual exams and preventive screenings

For many patients, an annual exam creates an opportunity to catch up on needed preventive screenings. At these appointments, your provider with Nation’s Best Family Health Care checks your overall health and wellness and looks for early signs of conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Early detection improves treatment outcomes across the board. And, with more effective, less expensive treatment options, you save both time and money when you detect health problems promptly.

You shouldn’t avoid the doctor because of concerns about potential long-term health problems. Instead, let us help you stay strong, healthy, and physically well throughout your lifetime with regular medical care.

When do you need preventive screenings?

Depending on your current health and personal and family health history, you might be set with preventive screenings once a year at your annual exam.

For some patients, though, more regular screenings may be needed. For example, older male or female patients might be due for mammograms or prostate exams. You might also need a one-time lab test or exam due to a unique issue. The number of preventive screenings you need, and the frequency, depends on factors like your age and personal health history.
