You have specialized needs for staying healthy, safe and independent. Our physicians can provide you with the resources of Baptist AgeWell Institute and partner with you to support and maintain your health and well-being.
Your primary care doctor stays up-to-date on the latest guidelines for when you should receive regular exams and screening tests for many common illnesses. These guidelines are based on the latest scientific information on the best practices in helping you stay healthy.
By providing you with exams and screening tests at the recommended times, your doctor can find undiagnosed illnesses early – ideally before you are even having symptoms – so treatment will be highly effective. Your doctor also can help you put into place factors like exercise and healthy eating that can prevent illnesses.
Your doctor can guide you in wellness screenings for:
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Alcohol misuse
- Aspirin regimen
- Blood pressure
- Breast cancer
- Cervical cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- flu Shot
- Prostate cancer
