How long has it been since you’ve seen your Loveland physician for a physical checkup? If you’re too embarrassed to admit it, it has likely been too long! Here at Huneycutt Family Medicine, understand how impersonal medical care has gotten over the years and how easy it is to forget about your health if you don’t have any obvious issues. We take the time to listen to you and provide you with the level of personal care that you want. Today we’re talking about the specific benefits of seeing your Loveland physician for an annual physical checkup.

Firstly, it’s important to consider than nearly a third of Americans live with a chronic disease that they are unaware of. Studies show that nearly 100,000 lives could be saved every year by increasing the amount of preventative care we subject our bodies to. Simple but crucial health screenings can easily detect the two most common chronic conditions – diabetes and high blood pressure – before they cause serious health issues.

Another benefit that you’ll reap from getting annual checkups is the relationship that you’ll build with your doctor. When you have a health crisis, you will have a doctor (and the doctor’s staff) who will already know and care about you – and you can probably get an appointment faster!

We want you to get the most out of your physical when you come to see Dr. Huneycutt, your local Loveland physician. We happily suggest that before your annual checkup, you make a list of all your health concerns if you haven’t seen us in a while.
