“An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.”
Seeking primary care is the foundation of health maintenance. We strive to help build a strong foundation, built for years of health. As primary care providers we promote screenings such as blood pressure, weight, and routine physicals, as well as specialized screenings including pap smears, clinical breast exams, and for sexually transmitted infections.
Maintaining health is more than simply having an absence of abnormal symptoms. It is seeking to promote the best health possible by identifying possible issues long before they become problematic. Identifying these and taking action can reduce, delay, and even prevent otherwise serious healthcare problems. We work with individuals to make a plan that can happen within the context of your life- which is understandably complex and unique.
