What is preventive care?

Using preventive care, Dr. Kathleen Gerace seeks to help you maintain or improve good health by taking steps to prevent disease, rather than just treat symptoms once illness or chronic conditions have set in.

Preventive care includes examinations and screening tests customized to each patient’s age, health, and family history. Many ailments can be effectively treated when detected early.

Services that are included as part of primary care include:

  • Yearly checkups
  • Well-women checkups
  • Colonoscopies
  • Mammograms
  • Bone density evaluation through DXA Scan
  • Weight-loss evaluation and support

Do I need a primary care provider? 

A primary care provider manages your long-term health and offers support for a wide variety of conditions. When you have a trusted, regular primary care provider, it means you have a practice that knows your health history. The practice keeps a record of any health changes and can catch problems early and intervene before you develop serious complications.

Patients who see a primary care physician regularly, have a lower chance of premature death compared to those who see specialists only.
