Okay. Tell the truth. What makes you decide to pay a visit to your healthcare provider? If you said that it’s when you’re not feeling well, you’re like pretty much everyone else. Something’s wrong, and you need to find out what it is. On one level, that makes perfect sense.
A lot of medical care is diagnosis and treatment, and that serves a purpose, but in some ways it’s kind of like closing the barn door after the horse has already escaped. In addition to “sick care”, that focuses on diagnosis and treatment of a health problem or disease, family practice is focused on preventative medicine. In preventative medicine, we establish a provider/patient relationship with you that helps you maintain health and wellness to actually stay OUT of the clinic!
Preventative Medicine practices techniques that not only keep you healthy, but work toward improving the health and well-being you already have. These techniques are not only geared toward preventing disease and disability. Preventative Medicine practitioners investigate environmental factors, genetic predisposition, disease agents, and lifestyle choices that are proven to be contributing factors to illness.ut there’s more! We all know that simply being appearing disease-free doesn’t mean you’re in the best of shape and living your best life. This is where the well-being part comes in. This is where “good” isn’t good enough. In Preventative Medicine, we’re looking for optimal.
