Preventive Medicine Q&A

What is preventive medicine?

Preventive medicine is health care that focuses on lowering your risk factors for chronic diseases, especially those that most often develop due to unhealthy lifestyle habits and a poor diet.

Routine preventive visits aim to identify potential health issues as early as possible so you can avoid long-term complications.

Montclair Concierge Medicine provides comprehensive preventive medicine services for adults and adolescents. Dr. DiStefano assesses your risk factors for certain diseases and works closely with you to improve your overall wellness. 

She offers a range of preventive services in-office through an affordable membership plan.

What preventive medicine services are available?

Montclair Concierge Medicine features preventive medicine services, including:

  • Wellness exams
  • Immunizations
  • Women’s health exams
  • Mental health evaluations
  • Lifestyle and nutritional counseling

Dr. DiStefano also provides routine health screening services to check for early warning signs of cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses.

You should schedule preventive wellness exams at the office at least once a year, even if you’re not experiencing symptoms.

These visits help Dr. DiStefano track changes in your health from one year to the next. Routine visits are also a great time to get boosters and updated immunizations that protect against chicken pox, the seasonal flu, measles, and other highly contagious diseases.

What happens during a preventive medicine visit?

During your initial preventive medicine visit at Montclair Concierge Medicine, Dr. DiStefano discusses your wellness goals and reviews your health history. She also learns more about your lifestyle, job, diet, and other factors that influence your health.

You can expect a complete physical exam where Dr. DiStefano checks your blood pressure, weight, heart rate, and other vital signs. Depending on your risk factors for certain diseases, she may also request blood work, urine testing, and other preventive screenings to identify early warning signs of chronic disease.

Your preventive care visit includes recommendations for diet improvements, daily exercises, stress management, and other strategies to optimize your wellness.

Dr. DiStefano can customize a treatment plan if she detects any underlying health issues. For instance, if your blood pressure is high during your physical exam, she may recommend changes to your diet and prescription medications.
