At Midtown Medical Clinic we have always placed a strong emphasis on preventative medicine. Doctors Anne Jackson, Anita Munoz, Emily Schilbach and Zeeshan Arain have a particular interest in this field.
Annual checkups are recommended for anyone aged 40 years and over.
This assists in the early detection and prevention of common medical conditions and diseases such as high blood pressure, heart and vascular disease, diabetes and cancers.
Where appropriate we conduct the Medicare subsidised 40 – 49 and 45 – 49 year old health checks.
We recommend health assessments for younger age groups in certain situations, for example a strong family history of cancer, heart disease or diabetes.
Our Doctors conduct thorough histories and examinations during preventative health checks. For women this may include breast checks and cervical screening, and for men rectal prostate examinations.
In all cases the skin is checked, in addition to internal organ systems.
A fasting blood test is often included. Cholesterol and blood glucose is regularly checked. In some cases bowel cancer screening is also undertaken
X-rays and other tests such as an exercise stress test may also be suggested.
Importantly all assessments are followed by the provision of a management plan tailored to your individual needs. This will include review appointments as necessary.
If you would like to arrange an appointment for a preventative health check, please contact our reception staff on 9650 4284. Please allow 30 minutes for your appointment. Alternatively you can book online.
