Immunizations

Vaccines are one of the safest and best methods of prevention. Immunizations can be administered to patients with minor illnesses, such as an ear infection or runny nose. Patients experiencing moderate to severe sickness should not receive some vaccinations, and those with other health conditions should not be given specific vaccines or receive them at a later date.

If you have any questions/concerns about yours or your child's immunizations, feel free to contact us.

Wellness Exams

We recommend that adults have a wellness exam each year to screen for diseases, determine the risks of possible future medical problems, update vaccinations and promote a healthy lifestyle. The majority of patients only seek medical attention if he/she is ill. Maintaining a relationship with your doctor and care team. Even when you are well, will allow us to recognize potential problems, like high blood pressure, early and treat them before they become more serious. During this exam, your physician will discuss your family history and medical history, as well as completing a thorough health assessment  for any abnormal signs/symptoms that may indicate an impending medical issue. 

Sports Physicals

A sports physical will determine if your child is physically fit enough to perform certain activities. Many sport organizations and schools require a physical exam prior to your child's participation in a sport. We will review individual and family health history and check the following:

  • Check blood pressure, pulse reading
  • Record weight and height
  • Check lungs, heart, abdomen, ears, nose and throat
  • Evaluate posture, joints, reflexes, strength and flexibility
  • Check vision

Cancer Screening

Early detection is the key to surviving cancer, no matter what kind of cancer it may be. During your annual physical exam, your physician will screen for all types of cancer, including breast, ovarian, testicular, prostate, colon and skin cancer, just to name a few. Many factors determine when a patient should start having a cancer screening, such as age, gender, medical history and family history. Consult your physician about when you should start receiving annual cancer screenings. It is also just as important to perform self-exams to screen for cancer of the breasts, testes and skin.
