Going to your local doctor once a year can provide positive benefits all-year-round
Going to the doctor in recent generations has been seen as an unnecessary annoyance and thus many have stopped going for yearly health check-ups. Going to a doctor when you’re sick is great, but doctors often are unable to have a complete medical picture of your health for informed medical decisions. Visiting your doctor yearly, even if you are healthy, gives you doctor more information about you and therefore more tools to make a more accurate diagnosis.
Broadbeach Medical Centre has a close and trusted relationship with their patients. Why? Their doctors care for the well-being of their patients and many have seen whole families come through the practice. With yearly check-ups, doctors have a full medical record and a great baseline of patient health to compare to when patients are unwell.
Choosing to have a yearly check-up can also lead to early detection of illnesses and disorders that may come on as you get older (such as Thyroid dysfunction, Alzheimer’s, MS and even just vitamin and mineral deficiencies). This can mean a healthier future and a healthier year because if you catch it early you can prevent and manage symptoms before you get too sick.
Think about a yearly health check-up today with your local family doctor and feel the benefits all year.Read More
