Preventive Care and Routine Check-ups

The old saying goes: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Family medicine physicians have been compared to “pediatricians for adults” because they oversee patient health and potential risks. Getting preventive care and routine check-ups from your Ogden Clinic family physician will help you maintain general health, catch problems early, and may even save your life!

Family physicians provide routine services to adults and kids alike. For children, a routine check-up will monitor the child’s growth and developmental milestones. If a child is due for vaccinations, family physicians will also administer them during a check-up. For adults, your physician may perform routine tests such as:

  • Cholesterol check
  • Blood pressure reading
  • Heart rate monitoring
  • Respiration rate
  • Temperature check
  • Addressing any patient concerns

They may also conduct specialized tests if you are at-risk for certain conditions or have a family history of illness or disease. Depending on your age, gender, weight, and general health, other tests may be necessary during your routine exam.

Family physicians love to see multiple generations. When we have the opportunity to treat the whole family, we can develop a robust medical history chart that helps us keep an eye out for hereditary conditions and illnesses.
