The Important Routine Physical
The smart way to avoid medical problems and maintain good health is to schedule a routine physical with a NorthShore University HealthSystem primary care physician. A routine check-up with your doctor is beneficial for a variety of reasons. Foremost, it allows him or her to perform important medical screenings—blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.
Based on your lifestyle and family history, your doctor can also recommend additional screenings that are appropriate for you. The Prevention Plan for Adults can lead you through these options.
