Screenings and Physicals
As an internal medicine specialist Dr. Odoom and his staff are dedicated to helping patients stay on top of their overall health and wellness. They do this not only by providing regular blood work and laboratory testing, but also through the process of yearly physicals, cancer screenings and much more.
During a health screening we may perform tasks like checking your vitals, updating your vaccination records, performing a thorough physical examination, discussing your healthcare goals, provide recommendations for your lifestyle, help reduce your risk of disease and illness, manage medications, and much more!
While physicals are important part of staying on top of your overall health and wellness, they also provide Dr. Odoom to get a close up look at different health markers, and identify problem issues that might arise in the future. This allows him to not only help to diagnose and treat current issues, but to predict warning signs and prevent future issues from arising by addressing them early, and often.
