What makes preventive care unique?

Preventive care focuses on stopping acute and chronic health problems before they occur. Instead of treating symptoms once they arise, preventive care is proactive, emphasizing healthy lifestyle changes and regular checkups. 

When combined, these practices make it easier to catch health problems before they can affect your quality of life. 

What does preventive care include?

Innovative Medical Group offers various preventive care services, including:

Physical exams

A physical exam helps your doctor assess your well-being from head to toe.

During a physical, they measure your heartbeat and respiratory rate, check your blood pressure, and test your reflexes. They also examine your ears, eyes, nose, and throat; gently palpate your abdomen to assess the size and location of your internal organs; and complete lab work. 

Men’s and women’s health care

Men and women have unique medical needs based on their reproductive organs. Innovative Medical Group offers full-service men’s and women’s health screenings, including Pap smears, breast exams, prostate exams, testicular exams, and mammogram referrals. 


Immunizations, or vaccines, teach your immune system to defend against viruses and bacteria. Although immunizations won’t necessarily keep you from getting sick, they significantly reduce your risk of severe outcomes, including hospitalization and death. 

Lab work

Lab work analyzes your blood, urine, or saliva to gain insights into your health. Since many chronic illnesses, like diabetes and high cholesterol, present few symptoms, it’s important to schedule lab work annually.

Bloodwork and urinalysis can alert you to potential problems and prevent them from worsening.

Chronic care management

Chronic illnesses like arthritis and heart disease worsen over time. Chronic care management uses prescription medication, regular checkups, and lifestyle counseling to optimize health. Your provider also helps you learn how to cope with your illness to feel your best.

Specialist referrals

Innovative Medical Group offers most preventive care services on-site. But if you need a special screening or test, your doctor can refer you to a nearby specialist and/or coordinate your treatment between providers. 

How often should I schedule preventive care?

Innovative Medical Group encourages all adults to schedule a preventive care checkup once a year, even if they feel fine. You might need more frequent checkups if you have a chronic condition like diabetes.

Regular exams and bloodwork can reveal changes in your health and reduce your risk of serious complications.
