Preventive medicine uses diagnostic imaging, lab work, and sex-specific screenings to catch health problems early when they’re easiest to treat. It’s essential that you participate in preventive medicine, even if you’re healthy. Regular checkups with Dr. Bryant can improve your health and provide peace of mind.
At B Med Mobile Service, Dr. Bryant offers various preventive medicine services, including:
An annual physical assesses your general and neurologic health. During a physical, Dr. Bryant examines every inch of your body, including your skin, limbs, ears, eyes, nose, and throat. She gently feels (palpates) your organs through your skin, listens to your heart, and checks your respiratory rate.
Immunizations, also called vaccines, teach your immune system to attack and destroy harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. After a physical exam and reviewing your medical records, Dr. Bryant develops and administers an immunization schedule that aligns with your needs.
Diagnostic imaging, like X-ray and ultrasound, uses advanced technology to capture images of your bones, joints, and internal organs. Dr. Bryant’s mobile medical office is equipped with digital X-ray and ultrasound imaging machines, so you can save yourself a trip to a radiologic facility.
Lab work assesses your blood, urine, or saliva to gain insights into your health. At B Med Mobile Service, Dr. Bryant uses lab work to diagnose health problems invisible to the eye, like hormonal imbalances and vitamin deficiencies.
Men and women develop many of the same health problems, but their unique reproductive organs present certain sex-specific risks. Dr. Bryant regularly performs preventive screenings on men and women, including breast, pelvic, and prostate exams.
Dr. Bryant treats most acute and chronic illnesses. But if you need more individualized care, she can refer you to a nearby specialist. She can coordinate your appointments and monitor your treatment progress if necessary.
Dr. Bryant recommends scheduling a preventive medicine appointment once a year, even if you eat well, exercise regularly, and get plenty of sleep. The older you get, the more likely you will have health problems, but preventive medicine can keep you safe and provide peace of mind.
