Preventive Services Q&A

What are preventive services?

Preventive services focus on reducing risk factors for chronic diseases and promoting optimal health and wellness.

Dr. Mangoba and his team offer customized preventive health services, including annual wellness exams, to help you stay on top of your health. These exams are important for identifying early signs of chronic diseases, even when you’re not showing symptoms.

Through routine preventive care, you can reduce your risk for chronic health issues like:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease

Addressing disease in its earliest stage is generally when treatment is most successful. Through preventive health services, Dr. Mangoba can help you get your health under control before medical complications become chronic and more serious.

What can I expect during an annual wellness exam?

During your initial wellness exam, Dr. Mangoba and his staff take the time to review your personal and family medical history. You can discuss any symptoms you have and address any concerns you have about your health without feeling rushed.

Dr. Mangoba performs a physical exam and notes important information about your health, such as:

  • Heart rate
  • Lung function
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Skin health

Depending on your medical history, you may need blood work or another diagnostic test to ensure you’re not at risk for chronic disease. You may also need diagnostic testing if you have existing health issues and are taking medications. 

Dr. Mangoba also takes time to review your general lifestyle and your diet to ensure you’re getting enough exercise and the right nutrition to support good health.

How do preventive services manage chronic disease?

Preventive services aim to detect any problems or chronic disease in the earliest stages to prevent complications. If your exam finds that you have a chronic disease, Dr. Mangoba and his team customize a treatment plan to help you manage it properly.

Through a treatment plan, they tailor to your needs, Dr. Mangoba and his staff focus on relieving any symptoms you have and preventing the worsening of your condition. Your treatment may include a combination of medications and lifestyle modifications, as well as follow-up primary care medical evaluations to monitor your health.

If it’s been more than a year since your last wellness exam or you need preventive care services to ensure good health, call Melanchton A. Mangoba, MD, or request an appointment online.
