Preventative Care Q&A

Why do I need preventive care screenings?

Preventive care screenings focus on identifying and preventing problems in their earliest stages. Many common diseases and conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer, are detectable before they even cause symptoms. 

When diagnosed at an early point in the disease, or when you have abnormalities that could lead to disease, you can take steps to avoid illness and serious health consequences. 

What types of preventive care screenings do I need?

At MUST Clinic, Dr. Stallings offers routine preventive care screenings based on your individual needs. She considers your risk factors, including your age and family history, to determine what type of screenings you need. Some of the typical screenings for adults include:

  • Blood pressure testing
  • Cholesterol screening 
  • A1C blood test (blood sugar test)
  • Mammograms for women
  • Pap smears for women
  • Osteoporosis screening (bone density) 

Dr. Stallings either performs the screenings personally or coordinates your tests with trusted local providers. 

How often do I need vaccines for preventive care?

Vaccinations are the best and most reliable way to prevent many diseases, so they’re an integral component of your preventive care at MUST Clinic. Dr. Stallings recommends a vaccine schedule appropriate for your age and risk factors. 

Children and adults should have yearly flu vaccinations, and other vaccinations according to schedule. You may also need vaccinations like TDap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), varicella zoster (shingles), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), hepatitis, and others at different points in your adult life. 

Dr. Stallings coordinates your vaccinations to ensure you’re protected against disease. 

What preventive care habits should I start now?

At MUST Clinic, Dr. Stallings assesses your health at every visit. You’ll discuss your diet, exercise, work, stress level, lifestyle, and other topics so Dr. Stallings can make personalized recommendations. She can help you implement preventive care strategies, including: 

  • Weight loss
  • Exercise
  • Nutrition changes
  • Dietary supplements

Between your own preventive care habits, recommended vaccinations, and health screenings, you can take a proactive role in determining your own health.
