The best care

Preventive care is an important part of healthcare. It includes

early diagnosis of disease, discovery, and identification of

people at risk of development of specific problems, counseling,

and other necessary intervention to avert a health problem.

 

At Desoto Family Wellness, we believe that preventive medicine

is one of the best medicines. We strive to ensure that everyone is up to date on screenings, immunizations, and lifestyle modifications that can improve overall health. Age, family history, and lifestyle can all affect what specific screening tests you may require.

  • Gynecological exams (pap smears and breast exams)

  • Laboratory testing

  • Immunizations (flu, shingles, pneumonia, tetanus)

  • Referrals for colonoscopy’s, mammograms, abdominal aortic aneurysm screenings

  • Birth control counseling

  • Lifestyle and weight loss counseling

  • Depression screening

  • EKG

  • Chest x-ray

  • Sports Physicals

  • Complete Physical Exams and Health Management for Children ages 7 and older
