Staying active in monitoring your health can save your life. Make your appointment and wear the gown.
Men, for a variety of reasons, are less likely than women to go to the doctor for a yearly checkup. Roughly 40 percent of men skip this important health appointment, according to a Cleveland Clinic survey. What they may not realize, however, is that they’re missing out on much more than routine bloodwork. They’re passing up a relationship that could improve, even save, their lives.
A primary care physician is more than someone who looks at blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Primary care providers act more like coaches – they can tell you what you need to work on to improve your health and the strategies it will take to achieve your goals.
This Men's Health month, join the challenge to "wear the gown" and schedule an appointment with your provider to take a step towards a longer and healthier life.
If you don't currently have a primary care provider, call now for your appointment or, if you prefer, you can view your available physicians and appointment times online here.
