Health Annual Exams at Our Houston Clinic

Annual exams are used to make certain that your health is in good working order, and if it is not, then the exam is designed to find those ailments so they can be addressed. At Medinet Family Care Clinic in southwest Houston, our physicians conduct annual exams for patients of all ages. These health checks, however, are very important for people over the age of 50.

Our trained medical staff conducts thorough examinations of every patient to check for diseases, ailments, and minor issues that cause our patients problems. Catching health issues in their infant stages is a sure way to keep our patients as healthy as possible for as long as possible.

CATCHING DISEASES THROUGH ANNUAL EXAMS

Many Houston residents do not know if they are healthy, as most do not undergo an annual health check. This can be very risky for patients, especially patients who are at risk.

At-risk patients, like those who are severely overweight or obese, can be in the early stages of a particular disease, like heart disease or diabetes, without even realizing it. Our Houston doctors can catch these diseases before they begin. From there, they will advise the patient on how to increase their health and turn back the potentially fatal disease. Even if the disease, depending on which it is, has already been contracted, it can be stifled or removed.

RECEIVE AN ANNUAL EXAM EVEN IF YOU’RE HEALTHY

Our medical staff highly recommends receiving an annual exam every year (hence the name) even if you feel healthy and live a healthy lifestyle. Regardless of your lifestyle (exercise and diet), there may be genetic issues that are passed down from parents or grandparents. These genetic problems can include heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Protect yourself and always be in the know of how healthy you are. Contact our family health clinic in southwest Houston today and schedule your annual examination appointment. We look forward to helping you stay on the right path for healthy living.
