Did you know that men, on average, die almost five years earlier than women? Part of the reason is that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor, according to menshealthmonth.org. In fact, studies show that women go to the doctor twice as much as men.
With June being National Men’s Health Month, this is a good reminder for men to schedule their “tune-up.” A routine physical is a great place to start. Many health conditions can be detected early with regular checkups and screenings from a healthcare provider. Let this also be a reminder to look in to your family health history. It can be helpful to your provider in determining risk and what if any additional screenings should be done.
Whether you need to see a Family Practice provider or a specialist, we have you covered. Call us today to schedule these important screening exams at 903.885.3181. Check back next week for more information on Men’s Health during the month of June.
