Preventative vs. Diagnostic Care
Many of us despise going to the doctor for numerous reasons. Perhaps you don’t have time to go due to your busy schedule. Maybe every time you go, you feel as though your concerns are never heard. Like many, there is a chance that you don’t go because you feel as though it is a waste of time. Why should you go to a ‘well visit’ if you are a healthy and functioning individual? What we don’t realize is that there could be silent killers lying beneath the surface that remain dormant and asymptomatic. That is, until it is too late. This is why here at Connected Health, we believe prevention is key when it comes to healthcare.
Let’s talk about preventative care vs diagnostic care.
We are so used to being overcome by an ailment, forcing us to seek medical attention. With diagnostic care, you are seeking medical attention when symptoms/issues arise. The physician must then quickly and correctly diagnose and treat the issue. The problem often stems when illnesses are incorrectly diagnosed or caught too late, causing the patient to suffer longer than expected. This in itself can cause many more issues down the road, including a deterioration of overall health and wellbeing.
What if you could prevent the pain and suffering before it even happens? More importantly, before it has the chance to escalate into something worse. That is where preventative care comes into play. Things like immunizations, screenings, and lab tests are among the many services we offer in order to detect problems before you have the chance to notice any symptoms.
Here at Connected Health, we believe it is important to intervene early so that we can identify risks and take action to keep you safe and healthy.

“I’ve had many physicals in my life, from the Air Force and my PCP, but nothing compared to this. When Dr. Andy concluded his examination, he found that I needed to see an ophthalmologist for an eye condition, had a thyroid concern that needed attention, and several other less serious medical concerns, all of which were never known or addressed by previous doctors’ visits or physicals…I can’t even explain how significant it is to get a screening that picks up so many things your normal practitioner or physical would fail to look for or address…you will never think about your health the same again.”
