Preventative care represents measures taken by physicians to prevent diseases and/or injuries before they happen rather than the focus of curing or treating symptoms. It can be defined as comprehensive care with a particular emphasis on the prevention, early detection and early treatment of conditions. This type of care can include screening tests and examinations that are related to an individual’s age, family history and health.
Different preventative services are done at different stages of your life based on the types of health issues that emerge over time.
All of MMC’s providers provide preventative care services.
