Your doctors in Argyle, TX, can help you stay healthy

Your health is important, and you need to protect it. Preventive care visits to your doctor can help prevent illnesses and serious diseases. Your doctor can provide the testing and diagnostic services to make sure you are enjoying good health. Dr. Christopher Hughes and Dr. William Musgrave of Argyle Family Practice in Argyle, TX, offer a wide range of medical services, including preventive care to help you stay healthy.

Preventive care starts with regular medical exams and physicals to make sure you are in good health. During these preventive care appointments, issues can be identified and treated early, before they can grow into serious medical problems. Your doctor can record baseline information like your blood pressure, height, weight, and other factors. This baseline information can be compared to future appointments to make sure you are on a healthy path.

Your doctor may also want lab tests to determine cholesterol levels, blood sugar, and red and white blood cell counts to help diagnose high cholesterol, diabetes, and infections. Preventive therapies like medications and lifestyle changes can be considered.

Vaccinations are an important part of preventive care, especially for children. In fact, your children are required to be current on vaccinations in order to attend daycare or school. Adults also need vaccinations including a yearly flu shot, shingles vaccine, pneumonia vaccine, and others. Vaccines are one of the easiest ways to prevent serious and deadly diseases.

Your preventive care appointment is also an excellent opportunity for your doctor to answer any questions you may have about medical care and other health topics. Lifestyle modifications are a great way to help you maintain a healthy weight, stop smoking, and stay on the right track to good health.
