Preventive Medicine Q & A

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is healthcare focused on preventing negative outcomes. It’s a proactive approach to not only avoiding chronic disease but also enhancing your health and wellness to boost your daily quality of life.  

A preventive medicine visit begins with routine physical exams and health screenings. You’ll receive screenings designed for your age, sex, and overall health. These visits are also a chance to connect with Dr. Gilban and receive guidance on any health or wellness topics, including medically supervised weight loss. 

Everyone can benefit from preventive medicine, even people who are already in good health. Focusing on ways to improve nutrition, get the right balance of physical activity, enhance sleep quality, and reduce stress can help you reach new heights in how you feel and function daily. 

What role do vaccinations play in preventive medicine?

Vaccinations help you build a strong immune system that can fight off serious infections. While most people receive the bulk of their vaccines during childhood, adults can also benefit from reviewing their immunization records. 

Dr. Gilban can help determine whether you’re missing any vaccines to ensure that you have a strong and resilient immune system. You may also benefit from annual flu vaccines, COVID-19 vaccines, and vaccinations related to international travel, school enrollment, or other needs. 

Why is preventive medicine so important?

Preventive medicine is a great way to support your body and reduce the risk of developing serious health issues. Chronic disease statistics are on the rise, and these health problems can shape everything about your daily life. 

Preventing health issues like heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension can help you live your best possible life. Unfortunately, far too many people begin to understand the importance of preventive medicine only after developing a serious health problem. 

Preventive medicine visits are also a great way to support your future health and wellness. Many people schedule these visits as part of their long-term health planning.
