What happens during a family medicine appointment?

During your initial visit to Pavilion Family Medicine, the providers learn more about your health needs by reviewing your personal and family medical histories. They also discuss your lifestyle, diet, and any concerns you have about your well-being.

You can expect to have a complete physical, and the providers may request blood work or other diagnostic tests to screen for certain diseases. Immunizations, including the seasonal flu shot, are available to protect against contagious diseases.

If you have an existing health issue such as diabetes or hypertension (high blood pressure), the providers discuss your options for treatment. They offer customized care plans to keep you symptom-free and prevent worsening your condition.

Your family medicine provider can also recommend strategies you can use to optimize your physical, mental, and emotional health. This may include diet and lifestyle changes, stress reduction, and daily exercise.
