Preventive care uses lab tests, screenings, and similar procedures to catch health problems early when they’re easiest to treat.
The older you get, the more likely you are to experience medical problems. Routine preventive care at Rahma Health can provide peace of mind and help you feel your best.
The Rahma Health team offers various preventive care services, including:
Well visits, also called physical exams, assess your general well-being. Schedule a well visit annually, regardless of how you feel. Many chronic illnesses don’t present noticeable symptoms, so you might be at risk and not know it.
Vaccines train your immune system to fight off harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. While no vaccine is 100% effective, staying immunized can reduce your risk of complications and protect your loved ones.
Women’s health provides sex-specific care for people with female reproductive organs. Rahma Health offers various preventive care services to women, including breast exams, Pap smears, and mammogram referrals.
Men’s health provides sex-specific care for men. The Rahma Health team offers several men’s preventive screenings, including digital rectal exams (DREs) and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood tests.
Lab tests analyze your blood, urine, and saliva to gain insights into your health. The Rahma Health team uses lab tests to check for chronic conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, and hormonal imbalances.
To live a long and active life, you need to participate in regular health maintenance. The Rahma Health team will make recommendations aimed at reducing your risk of acute and chronic health problems. For example, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress can reduce heart disease and cancer risk.
If you don’t maintain a healthy weight, you’re more likely to have heart disease or diabetes. The Rahma Health team can develop a medically supervised weight loss program to help you shed pounds and keep them off.
Anyone who wants to stay healthy can benefit from preventive care. By visiting Rahma Health annually for sex-specific screenings and a physical exam, you can stay on top of your health for years to come.
