Preventive Medicine Q&A

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine focuses on reducing the risk of chronic diseases by looking at your current health condition, risk for certain conditions and long-term health to better understand how to keep your body healthy. 

What does preventive medicine include?

Preventive medicine is unique to your health needs and goals. It’s also a collaboration between you and your health care provider that helps you maintain optimal health. 

Some of the most common preventive medicine services that the Rose Medical Clinic team offers include:

Physical exams

A physical exam assesses your overall health. Everybody should schedule a visit for an annual exam at least once a year to evaluate their overall health. The team offers annual, school, and pre-employment physicals to meet your preventive care needs.

Vaccinations

Whether your infant needs their initial vaccines or you need an annual flu shot, the team offers a broad range of vaccines. They can also administer the COVID-19 vaccine to you and your family members. 

Lab draws

If you’re sick, or the team finds symptoms of a potential chronic disease, they offer comprehensive blood work to understand your health condition in greater detail.

Sick care

It’s important to have a health care team you and your family can trust when you aren’t feeling well. The team at Rose Medical Clinic offers complete care for all types of illnesses, including strep throat, sinus infections, and influenza (flu).

Chronic disease management

Preventing chronic diseases from progressing can protect you from other health complications. If you have diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), or other chronic disease, the team can develop a treatment plan to help you manage your condition.

How can I practice preventive care at home?

Preventing chronic disease and other illnesses requires collaboration on your part as well as your health care team. After a comprehensive physical exam, the Rose Medical Clinic team may recommend modifying your lifestyle habits to optimize your health. They may encourage you to:

  • Follow a healthy diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Quit smoking
  • Drink alcohol only in moderation
  • Limit your caffeine intake
  • Get more sleep
  • Take supplements
  • Change medications
  • Lose weight

Preventive medicine is individualized and often changes as you age. The team can make adjustments to your care plan as needed to support your current or long-term health.
