What is Preventive Medicine?
Preventative medicine is the practice of taking specific steps to protect one’s health, such as getting regular check-ups, making healthy lifestyle choices, and vaccinating against illnesses. What sets preventive medicine apart from traditional primary care is that preventive medicine provides patients with the actions they need to take and the education they desire to prevent an acute or chronic illness from occurring in the first place. The ultimate goal of preventative medicine is to identify possible health risks early on and take action to reduce their likelihood. Dr. Sindwani offers the following preventive medicine services via her concierge medicine to men and women of New York City.
Regular Wellness Check-Ups
A wellness checkup is an important part of preventive healthcare that focuses on maintaining and improving the overall health of adults. It typically includes a review of medical history, physical examination, immunizations, and screening tests to detect illnesses early and ensure optimal health. Wellness checkups are important to identify health problems early and help prevent them from developing into more serious illnesses. Common screenings you can anticipate during your wellness check-up with Dr. Sindwani include but are not limited to:
- Blood pressure screening
- Cholesterol screening
- Diabetes screening
- Mental health check-up
Lifestyle modifications are an integral part of your preventive care. Making simple choices such as eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding tobacco products can help reduce the risk of many chronic conditions like cancer, heart disease, or diabetes. Dr. Sindwani and her expert team work with you on an individual basis to discuss your current lifestyle and habits and make adjustments based on your desired health outcomes to ensure you achieve optimal results.
Getting vaccinated is one of the most important things an individual can do to protect their own health and the health of the people around them. They are a critical component of public health, providing immunity to diseases and preventing their spread. Vaccines work by introducing a small amount of a weakened or dead form of a virus into the body, which then stimulates an immune system response that helps create antibodies and provides immunity. Vaccination is the best way to protect oneself from contracting illnesses like measles, mumps, and rubella. Dr. Sindwani is proud to offer a wide range of vaccinations to ensure her patients are cared for in their entirety.
