Preventive Medicine Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is a medical service dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain the best health possible. Through preventive care, Dr. Tamon focuses on your current health and strives to lessen any future decline in your health, leading to significant improvements in your wellness. 

If you struggle with a disease, such as diabetes, your preventive care also addresses the management of this chronic condition through regular checkups and an appropriate ongoing treatment plan.

What are some examples of preventive care services?

At LJ Medical Health and Wellness, Dr. Tamon offers preventive care services such as:

  • Annual physical exams
  • High blood pressure evaluations
  • Cholesterol screenings
  • Diabetes screenings
  • Basic and comprehensive health screenings
  • Vaccinations

Dr. Tamon also offers specific physical examinations to clear you for numerous activities and procedures, such as pre-employment physicals, preoperative physicals, and sports physicals.

During physical examinations such as these, Dr. Tamon checks your:

  • Blood pressure
  • Heart rate
  • Body temperature
  • Throat and tonsils
  • Hearing and ear health
  • Vision
  • Abdomen
  • Heart and lung function
  • Lymph nodes
  • Reflexes and balance

She also assesses any other relevant aspects of your physical or mental health, such as looking for signs of substance dependency, which may make it unsafe for you to perform certain tasks.

Who benefits from preventive medicine?

Preventive care is important for everyone. These regular checkups help Dr. Tamon catch any potential health issues early, so that she can treat them before they become serious. 

If Dr. Tamon discovers a potential issue during a preventive care visit, she can provide further testing or treatment. She may schedule you for a follow-up visit or refer you to a specialist in order to ensure your health.

Preventive care is also beneficial to individuals with chronic conditions. Routine checkups allow Dr. Tamon to make suggestions for lifestyle modifications and/or medication changes to ensure your condition is well-managed. 

Preventive care is the first building block of good health. Don’t neglect your foundation. Instead, book your appointment for preventive care with Dr. Tamon and the team at LJ Medical Health and Wellness today. Call the practice or reach out through the online booking tool here on the website.
