Primary and preventive care focus on identifying early signs of disease and optimizing your health to intercept potential health problems. Your primary care specialist is the first doctor you see for any health concern. Whether you’re due for a physical exam or feeling unwell, your primary care provider is your main source of health care.
The type of primary and preventive care you receive often depends on your age, medical history, and future health care goals. Common services that the Freeman Medical Clinic team provides include:
A physical exam is a complete head-to-toe health assessment. The comprehensive evaluation serves as a benchmark for the future. The team can refer back to your previous assessments each year to identify changes in your health and intercept early signs of concern. In addition to annual physicals, the team offers executive physical exams for companies and their employees.
The team performs a complete range of vaccinations, from human papillomavirus (HPV) immunizations to COVID vaccines.
Age brings about many changes to your physical, reproductive, and sexual health. That’s why the team provides well-woman exams that include pelvic exams, breast exams, Pap smears, contraception counseling, and other services that cater toward women. They also offer well-man exams for men experiencing testosterone changes, erectile dysfunction, and prostate concerns.
If you’re feeling unwell due to a sore throat, fever, or gastrointestinal issues, the team can provide a prompt diagnosis and comprehensive care.
