Physicals and Preventive Medicine
The doctors at Yaffe Ruden & Associates offer physical exams with a focus on preventive care. With an annual physical, your doctor is better able to obtain a holistic knowledge of you, your lifestyle and its effects on your overall health. During your visit, your doctor will evaluate your health and address any concerns you may wish to discuss. After s/he completes a physical exam, blood and urine tests and an electrocardiogram, s/he may also recommend that you do any necessary and age-appropriate screening tests, e.g. colonoscopy, bone density evaluation or mammogram. Working with you, the doctor will be able to develop an overall plan of care including recommending tests, vaccinations, supplements and referrals to specialists as needed.
