Some of the preventive health care services we offer include:

Common cancer screenings include pap smears, mammograms, colonoscopies, and many more.
Immunizations for children can include:

Immunizations for adults can include:
- Tdap boosters

Annual flu shots are available for adults and children and can help to reduce the risk of contracting the flu by as much as 60%. If a person receives a flu shot and still comes down with the flu, the shot can help to reduce the severity of the flu symptoms.
COVID vaccination recommendations are newer to the medical community. Please check with your health care provider for the latest recommendations in regards to dosing and boosters.

Chronic Disease Management

When correctly managed, the care a patient receives can improve their overall health.

Our weight management program utilizes a combination of behavioral lifestyle changes, physical activity, medication assistance, and dietary changes to help a patient lose weight and keep it off.
While most programs mainly focus on calories in and calories out, we understand that there is so much more to losing weight and managing weight loss. Weight can be affected by behavioral, environmental, psychosocial, metabolic, and genetic factors, among others. Because of this, we treat each patient as an individual and do our best to understand each patient’s unique environmental, social, and medical history when creating their comprehensive weight loss plan.
