When you wake up with a sore throat, fever, or any other unpleasant symptoms, your first thought is, “Time to go to the doctor.” It’s important to remember that seeing your doctor isn’t something you should only do when you’re sick. Scheduling an annual health exam will help to prevent illness so that you don’t end up at the doctor’s office every few months.
It is also important to keep in mind that you may already be sick, you just aren’t exhibiting any symptoms. When you do experience them, it can be a sign that the issue or illness has progressed. Some patients show no symptoms at all, and in these cases, because they don’t feel sick, they feel they have no reason to visit the doctor.
Regular screenings for cancer and an annual physical exam can be life-saving measures. At Progressive Care for Women, we focus just as much on preventing illness as we do on treating it. Contact us to schedule your annual health exam and make sure you remain happy and healthy for years to come.
