Preventive Health Services
At North Coast Family Medical Group, we are delighted to provide you with comprehensive preventive health services.
At North Coast Family Medical Group, we are delighted to provide you with comprehensive preventive health services. This is defined to include a physical examination, discussion of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and cancer, with focus on a healthy lifestyle that includes diet and exercise. It also includes review of any recent tests and recommendation of needed screening tests and/or immunizations. A physical will be different for each person depending on his or her age, gender, and family history. For women 18-25 years of age in relatively good health, only a gynecological exam may be needed on an annual basis.
Your physician or physician assistant may recognize medical problems or abnormal test results, and/or you may choose to discuss ongoing acute and chronic health issues at today’s visit. We actually encourage it, as it is our customary practice to attempt to address all of your health concerns within the time allotted. Because these additional services rendered are beyond a standard physical, additional charges will be applied to you or your insurance plan. Thus, it is our office policy to collect a co-pay for this visit.
