What happens during a preventive care appointment?
A preventive care appointment typically starts with a review of your medical history and a comprehensive physical exam.
Dr. Isaac assesses how well you’re functioning physically and mentally. He can also recommend preventive screenings based on your age to identify early warnings signs of chronic diseases and disorders like:

Screenings for children can identify behavioral disorders, developmental issues, and chronic diseases like diabetes.
In both adults and children, Dr. Isaac can screen for mental health issues like depression and anxiety. He can also discuss lifestyle factors that increase your risk for health complications, such as excessive alcohol use, drug use, and smoking.
During a well-woman exam, Dr. Isaac focuses on identifying issues like cervical cancer and breast cancer before you start having symptoms. He can also address health concerns that are unique to women such as irregular bleeding and menopause. You can also explore your options for birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
