Family Medicine Clinic in Myrtle Beach, SC

Preventive Care Services

A key aspect of primary and family medicine is preventive care. Preventive care focuses on preventing diseases and maintaining overall health, typically through regular check-ups and screenings. These appointments are often key in catching health issues early on when they're easiest to manage or treat.

This care is critical for everyone, regardless of age or gender. For our young patients, child wellness exams can help ensure they're growing and developing properly, and for our older patients, regular screenings can help manage the risks that come with age, like heart disease or cancer.

We also provide specialized care for women. With services like breast cancer screenings, we're committed to providing personalized, gender-specific care. Our team at Family Medicine of SayeBrook is dedicated to making sure our patients feel seen, heard, and well-cared for. We're not just here for you when you're sick—we're here to help you stay healthy.

Our team warmly invites you to join our family of patients. Whether you're seeking preventive health checkups, screenings, or gender-specific care, our office is ready to serve you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get preventive health check-ups?

We typically recommend that adults get preventive health check-ups at least once a year to keep an eye on their overall health and well-being. Depending on your age, family history, and other risk factors, you may need more frequent check-ups. Your doctor will be able to give you personalized guidance and determine a plan that works best for you.

Do I really need to get a flu shot every year?

Yes, getting a flu shot is crucial for preventing seasonal influenza and its complications. The flu virus mutates every year, making the previous year's vaccine less effective. By getting a flu shot annually, you are protecting yourself and those around you from this highly contagious illness.

Which insurance plans do you accept?

We accept a number of insurance plans, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, Medicare, and more. For a full list of accepted insurances, please visit our Insurance page.
