I am healthy. Do I need a well visit or "checkup?”
It is important to see your provider at least once a year, even if you feel healthy. We call this “preventive care," because it helps keep you well.
Some sicknesses don’t make you feel ill right away. We can do tests to check for these sicknesses, and then treat them to help make sure they won’t cause future problems with your health. Tests we offer include:
- Checking for high blood pressure
- Blood tests for diabetes and thyroid problems
- Checking for signs of reproductive system cancers (ex. cervical cancer)
- Checking breast tissue for signs of cancer
- Testing for sexually transmitted illnesses
- Women's health
- And more
At checkups, your provider will let you know if you need any vaccines (ex. a flu shot or COVID-19 booster) to help protect your health. If you will be traveling outside of the United States, we can make sure you are vaccinated for illnesses that are common where you are going.
Having habits that help you stay healthy is also part of preventive care. We can answer your questions and give advice about things like:
- Food (ex. choosing food that is affordable, tasty and gives your body what it needs for growth and health)
- Sleep (ex. how many hours you sleep each night or if you have trouble falling/staying asleep)
- Physical activity (ex. playing a sport, doing a workout or walking/biking for transportation)
- Sexual health (ex. protecting yourself from sexually transmitted illnesses, preventing pregnancy, etc.)
- PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) if you are at higher risk of getting HIV
- Quitting smoking
- Gaining or losing weight
- Stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health concerns
I think I’m sick or injured. How can you help me?
We offer same-day or next-day, urgent care appointments. If you aren’t feeling well, please call 215.762.5037 to make an appointment.
We will talk with you and use physical exams or tests (like in the examples above) to help us figure out what’s causing your symptoms.
We can treat a wide range of illnesses ourselves, but sometimes, we will "refer" or send you to another health care professional. For example, we could refer you to a medical office that has technology (ex. X-rays) or make a referral for surgery.
We offer same-day or next-day appointments for urgent symptoms. Call 215.762.5037 for more information.
