Adult Preventative Medicine

At Kingwood Family Practice, we believe in the benefits of preventative medicine to support proactive healthy living, rather than reactive medical treatments.

Many people only go to the doctor when they’re injured or feeling sick. However, the team at Kingwood Family Practice can prescribe a program designed to keep patients healthy, including routine health screenings, annual checkups, immunizations and other tests. Each preventative service is dependent upon your age, sex, family history and medical history. Some common examples of preventative medicine are as follows:

  • Annual Health Checkups
  • Regular Measurements of Height, Weight, Heart Rate and Blood Pressure
  • General Health Tests and Health Screenings
  • Urinalysis
  • Stool Sample
  • Blood Work
  • Cholesterol Testing
  • STD Testing
  • Advice about Lifestyle Choices (diet, exercise, tobacco, alcohol and drug use)
  • Consultation on Stress and Accident Prevention
  • Injury Prevention and Safe Lifestyle Choices
  • Immunizations (“shots”)
  • Special Tests at Certain Times in Your Life (during pregnancy and at 50)
  • Osteoporosis Testing (women over 65 or younger if at risk)
  • Review of  Pap Test or Mammogram (women of certain age, risk factors and lifestyle)
  • Colorectal Cancer Screening
