Preventative Care Q&A

What is preventive care?

Preventive care is a form of medicine that focuses on wellness and health maintenance rather than treating illnesses or injuries you already have. Even if you have chronic conditions outside your control, preventive care helps you stay as healthy as possible and maintain independence. 

Greenwood Village Family Medicine supports you as you make the changes necessary to stay healthy throughout your life. You can follow up with Dr. Donch at least once a year with an annual physical exam and come in whenever you have questions or concerns about your health. 

Dr. Donch offers personalized wellness recommendations based on your medical history, family medical history, and habits. They also ensure you stay on track with any beneficial preventive services at the office or with convenient remote visits. 


What are the benefits of getting preventive care?

Engaging in preventive care minimizes your disease risks while often improving the overall function of important organs and systems. You can visit Greenwood Village Family Medicine for preventive care to lower your risk for lifestyle-related illnesses and serious medical conditions such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Contagious infections

While there are risk factors for some of these conditions that are not controllable, like your genetics, preventive care gives you more control over your health and wellness.
