Dynamic Health & Wellness Center is a one-stop shop as a primary care practice, providing all of the services you need to prevent, treat, and manage acute and chronic health conditions. Mrs. Christensen offers preventive care for all people ages 4 and up.
Preventive care services include all of your routine visits, treatments, and tests with Mrs. Christensen at Dynamic Health & Wellness Center.
This might include:
Your annual exam, or wellness exam, is the most important preventive care visit of the year. This comprehensive exam assesses your current overall health and risk of future health problems.
In addition to your physical health, Mrs. Christensen also assesses your mental health during this routine exam. Mind and body are interconnected, and the only way to achieve complete and total wellness is by recognizing and medically managing both physical and mental health.
Immunizations, or vaccinations, help your body defend itself from harmful germs like the flu and the virus that causes COVID-19. Immunizations are an important part of preventive care because they protect you from getting sick, or minimize the effects if you are infected.
Mrs. Christensen provides immunizations for her pediatric and adult patients. She follows the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to determine what type of vaccines you need and when.
Health screenings are routine medical tests that check for diseases and health conditions. Mrs. Christensen performs health screenings at your annual exam.
The screenings you need depend on your age and sex and may include a blood test to screen for diabetes or a colonoscopy to screen for colon cancer.
Preventive care is all about keeping you as healthy as possible and provides many benefits to you.
First, your regular visits at Dynamic Health & Wellness Center help you stay on top of your health and well-being so you can stay focused on your health goals.
These visits also improve your patient-provider relationship. The more comfortable you feel with Mrs. Christensen, the more likely you are to share your health concerns so you can get the medical care you need to improve or maintain health and wellness.
Preventive care also finds medical problems during the early stages, when they’re more responsive to medical intervention. Early detection and treatment may prevent more serious health problems.
