Click here now to get your custom Preventive Care Guidelines for your age and gender.

Seeing your doctor for routine preventive care can help identify health problems before you know something’s wrong, which is often when treatment could make the most difference. Maintaining or improving your health and preventing disease is important to living a healthy life. By scheduling a preventive visit with your doctor, your physician will consider your personal risk factors, such as your age, family medical history, general health and lifestyle, then make recommendations for the preventive health screenings that are appropriate for you. Talk to your doctor about your specific health questions and concerns, and use these guidelines, along with the advice of your doctor, to maintain or improve your health.
