In addition to treating your acute and chronic conditions, our physicians can provide services to help prevent illnesses as well. Some of these services include:

  • Routine checkups and laboratory tests for patients 1 year of age and older
  • Vaccinations for adolescents and adults, including seasonal flu vaccinations.  Please see age-specific immunization schedules on the Your Health page.
  • Women's well visits, including pelvic exams, breast exams and pap smears
  • Cancer screening, including prostate exam and tests, pap smears, and referrals for colonoscopies and mammograms
  • Cardiac screening, including blood tests, echo-cardiograms (EKG/ECG), and stress test
  • Medicare Annual Wellness visits and "Welcome to Medicare" visits for Medicare Part B enrollees

Many preventive services are often covered by insurance plans, so refer to your insurance handbook or contact your insurance carrier to check your benefits.
