What does your Preventative
The initial part of your evaluation incorporates an assessment of your medical history keeping in mind the end goal is to recognize potential risk factors like if your family has a history of diseases. These screenings will allow your provider to determine which tests to order. Once the family history is taken, the exam itself may incorporate further tests such as:
- Blood pressure / Vital signs
- Complete blood work
When tests can’t be performed in the office, your provider will give you a form that you can take to a lab or diagnostic facility. Your provider may arrange these tests prior to your appointment so she can discuss the results with you during your exam. Depending on the test results, they will provide recommendations for treatment or lifestyle changes to improve your health.
