When is the last time you visited your healthcare provider? If it has been more than a year, it is time for a check-up. Just like your car needs regular oil changes to keep running strong, people need to check-in with their doctor from time to time to stay strong and healthy.
The greatest benefit of an annual check-up is information. This helps you and your physician. Many people don’t know they have a health problem until it is too late. By checking in with your doctor and getting regular tests, we can help you prevent major health problems.
Nearly a third of Americans don’t even know they have a health issue. For example, simple health screenings can easily detect the diabetes and high blood pressure before they can cause serious health problems. If you wait until you feel sick, the damage may already be done. With timely healthcare you can prevent unnecessary trips to the hospital and reduce the costs of primary care.
You can expect your annual check-up to include:
- One-on-one consult with your provider
- On-site labs based on your health needs (ask before your appointment if you need to fast before your lab tests)
- Health coaching
Your healthcare team at Eastern Iowa Health Center will make sure you receive the medical care that is best for you. You are a unique person and we care the healthcare you receive meets your individual needs.
