Preventive Medicine Q&A

What is preventive medicine?

If you’re like most people, you may only schedule an appointment with your health care provider when you’re sick or injured. Though these conditions benefit from medical care, your provider may only focus on the acute issue at hand, not your overall health and wellness.

Preventive medicine focuses on preventing sickness and injuries before they happen. It’s a more whole-body approach to care that evaluates all aspects of your health and lifestyle that may place you at risk of sickness, disease, or injury.

Apex Wellness specializes in preventive medicine and uses telehealth technology to provide health care services rather than in-office clinic visits, which saves you time and money. 

What happens during a preventive medicine consultation?

The details of your preventive medicine consultation at Apex Wellness may depend on your specific health needs and wellness goals. Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones ask detailed questions about your health, including:

  • Personal health history
  • Family medical history
  • Current medication and supplement use
  • Health issues or concerns
  • Exercise habits
  • Usual diet
  • Occupation
  • Areas of stress

They may also request specific health data from you, including your height, weight, and blood pressure (if available). 

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones gather as much information as they can from you during your initial consultation so they can create a personalized preventive medicine treatment plan that you can easily incorporate into your life. 

What are preventive medicine treatments?

Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones specialize in preventive medicine and offer many treatments aimed at optimizing your health and preventing sickness, disease, and injury. 

Some of the preventive medicine treatments include:

  • Stress management
  • Nutrition education
  • Personalized exercise program
  • Weight management
  • Lifestyle modification
  • Smoking cessation
  • Disease prevention
  • Ergonomic recommendations
  • Injury prevention

They develop realistic plans that give you the skills to achieve optimal health. Dr. Patel and Dr. Jones schedule regular telehealth follow-up appointments to monitor you and your health, and they can adjust your treatment plan as needed. 

With telehealth, Apex Wellness provides immediate care when you need it, which helps you achieve your goals faster. Having fewer visits also saves you time and money.
