Men's Health

You can take charge of your health by staying current on well-care visits, screenings, and immunizations. Your primary care physician will help you stay on track by sending annual reminders about your upcoming screenings around the time of your birthday. Our goal is to help you live a healthier and happier life through preventive care.

During your well-care visit, you and your doctor will discuss how to improve your health and prevent disease. You may receive recommended tests or immunizations during your visit, or you may need to schedule separate appointments.

Depending on your health and personal risk factors, your preventive care schedule may differ from the standard recommendations. Talk with your doctor about a schedule that's best for you. If you have particular risk factors like a chronic disease, obesity, or a family history of a disease, additional screenings may be recommended.
