Living in the mountains is hard. Make an easy call to schedule an annual wellness visit and prevention screenings.

Wellness Visit

A wellness visit is a regular appointment with your primary care provider to create or update a personalized prevention plan. This head-to-toe physical may help prevent illness based on your current health and risk factors.

Skin Screening

Skin screenings can detect melanoma and other skin cancers early. Even if you aren’t at increased risk, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your skin. If you notice an irregular mole or spot, schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or dermatologist for a diagnostic exam.
