Prevention is always better than a cure. It is important to take precautionary measures to address possible health risks: this is where the Village Doctor’s preventive medicine on-call doctors come in. We want to help you be the best you you can be!
What is Preventive Medicine?
Preventive Medicine is the science of medical practices that are designed to prevent and avoid diseases. For example, getting examined for hypertension (high blood pressure) and attending to it before it causes serious diseases and complications is: preventive medicine.
Preventive medicine’s main goal is the absence of diseases by either preventing the occurrence or by halting diseases and averting its probable complications after its onset.
Preventive medicine or preventive health care consists of measures and practices taken for illness prevention and optimum health promotion, in contrast to just treatment of symptoms and diseases. Preventive medicine also focuses on the health of communities, targeted populations, and individuals. Preventive medicine doctors work with various groups of people together to develop and implement ways to prevent a disease and its spread, decrease disability, and maintain the health and safety of people and the community. There are many success stories of preventive medicine. The present challenge is how to motivate people or individuals to practice prevention. This is when a primary care physician will be your champion. And here, at The Village Doctor our aim is to walk with you and help you be the best you you can be.
Here, at The Village Doctor we have dedicated on-call doctors to attend to you and help you with preventive medicine.
For example our Preventive Medicine program involves examining the physical and mental well-being of you, the patient, so that illnesses and disabilities resulting from you or your family’s lifestyle, environmental factors, and genetic disposition could be detected and prevented early, and thus avoiding serious repercussions and complications.
What are the roles of a Preventive Medicine Specialist?
Peventive Medicine Specialists work with individuals, families, and communities to research and eventually develop and implement effective preventive ways to avoid diseases, and casualties, and maintain the health of everyone.
Preventive Medicine Specialists also evaluate the effectiveness of current available medicines and treatments on various diseases to continuously improve the healthcare system.
