The Importance of Routine Check-Ups
Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many parts of our lives for over a year now. As we take time to reflect on all that has changed for each of us, we want to remind everyone that doing whatever normal activities you can is very important. This includes routine and annual health care services. We want to encourage our patients to schedule the care appointments they need, including routine check-ups.
Studies have shown that people with pre-existing conditions are more likely to have serious side effects from COVID-19. Due to this, it is very important to prioritize your health. Routine check-ups are a great way to maintain and improve your overall health.
Routine check-ups are helpful for many reasons. They can help with:
- Early detection of new health concerns
- Preventative care
- Care for existing conditions
Visits may look a little different due to COVID-19. However, we are working hard to create a safe environment.
