At Pioneer Physicians Network preventative care is of the utmost importance in managing your health. To start your own “good health” practices, there are four things you can do immediately without any medical knowledge:
-Don’t smoke or use other tobacco products; Drink only in moderation (and red wine in the most acceptable use of alcohol)
-Eat a proper, balanced diet to get the correct amount of nutrients and calories daily
-Exercise at least three days per week; Aerobic exercise will build muscle and endurance
-See your doctor regularly for check-ups
Please schedule routine exams with your doctor and discuss which testing is appropriate for you.
