Complete Physical Exam and Preventative Care

Welcome to CoreMed Plus! Our healthcare facility offers comprehensive physical exams and preventative care services to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal health. Our experienced and skilled healthcare professionals are dedicated to providing top-notch medical care in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

During a complete physical exam, we will thoroughly evaluate your overall health, including checking your vital signs, assessing your medical history, conducting a physical examination, and performing any necessary laboratory tests or screenings. This helps us identify any potential health issues and develop a personalized treatment plan to address your specific needs.

In addition to our physical exams, we also offer preventative care services to prevent illnesses and manage chronic conditions. These services include immunizations, health screenings, lifestyle counseling, and disease management programs.

At CoreMed Plus, we are committed to providing high-quality medical care and promoting overall wellness in our patients. We believe that preventative care is essential for maintaining good health and preventing serious health problems, and we strive to provide our patients with the knowledge and tools they need to achieve their health goals.

Preventative Healthcare

At CoreMed Plus, preventative care is essential to maintaining good health and well-being. Preventative care involves preventing health problems before they occur or catching and treating them early when they are most treatable. Our healthcare providers offer a range of preventative care services to help patients maintain optimal health and prevent serious health issues from developing. 

From health screenings and vaccinations to lifestyle counseling and chronic disease management, we take a comprehensive approach to preventative care tailored to each patient’s needs and concerns. By focusing on prevention, we can help our patients achieve their health goals and live their best lives.

What is Preventative Healthcare

Preventative healthcare, also known as preventive medicine, is an approach to healthcare that focuses on preventing illness and disease before they occur or become more serious. Preventative healthcare aims to maintain or improve overall health and well-being and reduce the need for more costly and invasive medical interventions. There are several components of preventative healthcare, including regular health screenings, vaccinations, healthy lifestyle choices, and management of chronic health conditions.

Regular health screenings are an important part of preventative healthcare. Screenings can help detect health issues early, before they become more serious or even life-threatening. Examples of health screenings include blood pressure checks, cholesterol tests, mammograms, colonoscopies, and skin cancer screenings.

Vaccinations are another essential aspect of preventative healthcare. Vaccines help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and can protect individuals and communities from serious illness. Examples of vaccines include the flu vaccine, HPV vaccine, and childhood vaccines such as the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Healthy lifestyle choices are also key to preventative healthcare. These include regular exercise, maintaining a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, reducing stress, and avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption. Healthy lifestyle choices can help prevent chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

Management of chronic health conditions is also an important aspect of preventative healthcare. Chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and asthma require ongoing management to prevent complications and improve overall health. This may include regular doctor visits, medication management, and lifestyle modifications such as dietary changes and exercise.

Preventative healthcare has several benefits, including reducing healthcare costs, improving overall health and quality of life, and reducing the burden of chronic disease on individuals and society. By focusing on preventing illness and disease rather than simply treating symptoms, preventative healthcare can help individuals live longer, healthier lives.

At CoreMed Plus, we believe in the importance of preventative healthcare. We offer various preventive healthcare services, including health screenings, vaccinations, and management of chronic health conditions. Our healthcare providers work with you to develop an individualized plan for maintaining your health and preventing illness and disease. We also offer education and support to help you make healthy lifestyle choices and manage your health effectively. We can help you achieve and maintain optimal health and well-being by prioritizing preventative healthcare.

I married my Medical School Sweetheart, Barbara, and we are fortunate to have two adult children and a granddaughter. We have been residents of Oakland County since 1988 and enjoy all that Michigan has to offer.
