Most people only go to the doctor when they experience a problem or an illness, but your primary care provider can offer much more to keep you healthy.
Physicals, or check-ups, are important for your overall health:
- Prevent health problems: Your doctor can review changes in your health, identify risk factors for problems and offer advice on how to manage them.
- Update vaccinations: Shots are not just for kids. Immunizations are an important way to prevent diseases and infections such as shingles.
- Review medication prescriptions: It’s important to discuss over-the-counter medications to prevent side effects.
