Preventive Healthcare

General Information

When you are sick, you have no choice but to think about your health. At “Call Doctor”, we believe that prevention is better than cure.

Medical research has come a long way, and as a result, people live much longer than they used to. Learning about and practicing preventive healthcare is properly the best method to prevent a disease from happening in the first place.

Preventive healthcare is nothing but measures taken for disease prevention, before going for treatment. Preventive care leads to better health and well-being. Call Doctor’s physicians are targeting to achieve positive results in our patients’ lifestyle choice, health, and well-being.

There are many ways to prevent diseases.

One of the ways is to start eating right, getting exercise, getting enough sleep each night and avoiding tobacco, alcohol and excessive amounts of sugar and salt. Healthy habits are an “automatic” defense against most illnesses and can provide us a long, healthy – and thus happy – life.

Also, we recommend to stay up to date with immunizations and boosters and maintain a good relationship with your body. We create individual plans tailored to specific needs for each and every one.
