Health Screenings Q & A

What are health screenings?

Health screenings are tests and assessments that medical providers rely upon to learn more about your current organ and system functions. They provide a snapshot of your health at a specific point in time. 

Some screenings are part of routine preventive healthcare. Others present information that can narrow down, confirm, or rule out a diagnosis. Any time your provider suggests health screenings, they are happy to explain why the test is necessary and what to expect from the process. 


What kinds of routine health screenings do I need to stay healthy?

Never before have there been so many advanced options when it comes to routine health screenings. At Primecare Family Practice, you have access to all of the routine screenings you need.

Your provider guides you toward the screenings appropriate for you. Your age, sex, and overall health dictate which options are a good fit for basic preventive health. Some of the screenings your practitioner may recommend include:

  • Blood glucose (sugar) testing
  • Diabetes screening
  • Blood pressure
  • Kidney function
  • Liver function
  • Hormone levels
  • Metabolic function
  • Thyroid function

These are just some of the screenings you might need at various phases of life. Routine blood testing is a great screening tool and reveals considerable information about how your body functions. 


How often should I come in for health screenings?

Most routine health screenings take place as part of your annual physical exams. If the results of these tests indicate areas of concern, you may need to come in for more advanced screening. In some cases, your Primecare Family Practice provider refers you to a specialist for more in-depth testing, like a colonoscopy or biopsy. 

The results of your health screenings go into your personal medical record. This living document becomes an invaluable tool over time and helps your practitioner track your health as you move through the phases of life. 

If you’re experiencing symptoms, come in for an acute care visit. COVID-19 testing is available, and your practitioner offers several tests to detect issues like the flu, strep throat, allergies, sexually transmitted diseases, and more.
