At West Volusia Family and Sports Medicine, we’ve heard plenty of excuses from people who aren’t convinced that constant vigilance over their health is needed:
Let’s face it, we understand that no one likes going to the doctor’s office. You may feel your best and think it unnecessary to see your doctor on a regular basis. The truth of the matter though, is that even when you are feeling great, that doesn't mean that things aren't going on inside your body. Many patients think they should call only when they are starting to feel sick, but by doing routine checkups you can actually prevent that sickness from surfacing. Other patients think that even though they might not feel at their best, that if they wait it out the issue will go away in time. The problem with this, is that an ailment that goes undiagnosed could be the cause for other health issues to occur. This could lead to a lot more visits in your future, at a significantly higher cost, which no one wants.
Preventative care is the easiest way to make sure that your health is in tip-top shape at all times. Just like preventative maintenance keeps your car running strong for as long as you own it, you want to do the same for your health. Regular checkups with your primary care office and doing regular lab-work, help keep you at your healthiest. Don’t allow your health to strand you on the sidelines. Remember, the importance with preventative care and health maintenance is an early diagnosis.
