The earlier a physician detects an illness, the sooner they can administer the proper treatment and the better the outcomes for the patient. Preventative care involves conducting screenings for patients with risk factors for certain diseases. As part of their effort to offer holistic care, Nirvana Healthcare Management Services delivers preventative screenings for the following health areas at all primary care locations. Below is a sampling of screenings
• Cardiovascular health and wellness: Blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity
• Fall prevention: Helping older adults identify factors that may increase their risk for falling and developing strategies to minimize injury
• Men’s health: Prostate cancer, colorectal cancer
• Women’s health: Pap test, cervical cancer, breast cancer, birth control
Patients may also schedule blood work and other tests at onsite laboratories found at all primary care locations.
