Preventive Visit

A preventive visit is an annual appointment with your doctor intended to prevent illnesses and detect health concerns early, before symptoms are noticeable.

This visit includes a review of your medical and social history related to your health and education about preventive services, including these:


  • Complete physical exam
  • Vaccination review and update
  • Age-appropriate heart disease screenings (blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol tests)
  • Cancer risk screenings (pelvic exam, Pap smear, prostate and colorectal screenings)
  • STD testing
  • Evaluation for signs of depression
  • Alcohol, depression, obesity and tobacco counseling
  • Preventive visits are an opportunity to discuss care areas, referral to other specialists and share lifestyle changes to establish a long-term health plan.
