Preventive Care!

At Wake Family Medicine, we believe that prevention is your most powerful option, and is the key to your lasting health, both physically and mentally.
It is easier to MAINTAIN good health than to RESTORE it. Therefore we recommend annual physicals to help prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
Preventative care includes, annual physical examinations to find potential problems before they occur. Screening for cancer with Pap smears, breast examinations, and rectal examinations, specific protection with immunizations against childhood diseases, influenza, pneumonia, hepatitis, etcetera, and dietary and lifestyle management to promote health and fitness.
