Preventive Care Q & A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care uses routine checkups and medical screenings to help people live long, healthy, and active lives.

You don’t need to feel sick or have any symptoms to benefit. Scheduling a preventive care exam at Honeycomb Medical Group can educate you on healthy living, alert you to underlying health problems, and help you build a strong relationship with your primary care provider.

What services does preventive care provide?

Honeycomb Medical Group offers various preventive care services, including:

Annual wellness visit (AWV)

An AWV is a special exam for people with Medicare. Instead of diagnosing or treating specific health problems, it emphasizes patient education and prevention. At the end of the visit, your provider develops a personalized health plan for you to follow. 

Routine checkup

A routine checkup, or annual physical, presents a chance to check in on your physical and mental health. During the visit, your provider completes a head-to-toe exam, orders laboratory testing, conducts sex-specific screenings, and updates your immunizations.

Laboratory testing

Laboratory tests analyze blood, urine, or saliva samples to gain insights into your general health. They provide a quick and minimally invasive way to identify high cholesterol, hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiencies, and more.

Vaccinations and immunizations

Vaccines and immunizations teach your immune system to identify and destroy harmful pathogens, like viruses and bacteria. Getting vaccinated may not prevent you from getting sick, but it can reduce your risk of severe outcomes and protect those around you.

Chronic care management

If you have a chronic illness, like diabetes or heart disease, chronic care management can prevent it from worsening.

Honeycomb Medical Group offers remote patient monitoring (RPM), and other similar services, to help those with incurable illnesses thrive.

Treatment of minor illnesses and injuries

Acute illnesses, like strep throat and the seasonal flu, often worsen without treatment. Honeycomb Medical Group regularly diagnoses and treats minor illnesses and injuries to encourage healing and prevent complications.

Care coordination

The doctors and nurse practitioners at Honeycomb Medical Group treat most acute and chronic illnesses, but certain conditions require more specialized care. If necessary, your provider can coordinate treatment with specialists.
