Preventive Medicine Q & A

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is a health care specialty that focuses on promoting overall health and wellness, and preventing the development of chronic disease, disability, and premature death.

The skilled team of physicians at MM Jersey City Breathing Center offers a variety of preventive medicine health services based on your existing health and your personal and family medical history.

What preventive medicine services are available?

Preventive medicine services are often used as part of your annual physical exam. Your MM Jersey City Breathing Center provider physically examines your overall health, checking for abnormalities in your:

  • Height
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature

They also evaluate the health of your skin and externally check your major organs for swelling or other noticeable issues.

Your annual visit is also a good time to get caught up on necessary immunizations to protect you from diseases like tetanus and the seasonal flu virus.

If you have a family history or other risk factors for chronic disease, your MM Jersey City Breathing Center physician may request additional preventing health screenings.

What preventive health screenings will I need?

Based on your personal and family medical history, you may need blood work or other screenings to test for chronic health conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol

Your doctor also discusses your diet and exercise plan, any concerns about being overweight or obese, and your use of alcohol or drugs outside of any medical treatment. 

The MM Jersey City Breathing Center staff also has experience evaluating mental health issues, like depression and anxiety.

For older patients, the MM Jersey City Breathing Center medical team offers fall risk assessments to ensure you are functioning independently at home and aren’t at risk for injuries, like hip fractures, common with falls.

The goal of preventive health screenings and routine physicals is to identify potential diseases in their earliest stages. 

In the event your tests show issues that require medical attention, your MM Jersey City Breathing Center doctor customizes a treatment plan to address these issues as soon as possible. 

Through early detection, a number of chronic conditions can be better managed and controlled with early intervention and treatment.
