Prevention and wellness
Keeping you well throughout your life
Legacy Health urges you to take an active role in your health to prevent illness and maintain your health. That means getting regular check-ups when you should and seeing a doctor at the first signs of illness or when you are concerned about your health.
Being a proactive member of your own health team with your physician and clinical staff can help you maintain the life you want to lead.
From routine exams to specialty help, we are here to partner with you.
Our services include:
What type of provider do you need?
For an annual well-woman exam, you can choose a general gynecologist. Some nurse practitioners will also offer this service. The exam may include a Pap test, cancer screening, a breast assessment, evaluations and counseling. Well-woman exams are covered under the Affordable Care Act.
No matter which health care provider you see most regularly, be honest about your diet, alcohol intake or other habits so they can help you stay as healthy as possible.
A primary care provider is another resource for your overall health.
