Navigating life in the midst of a pandemic is never where we saw our 2020 headed. As we wrap up this year and count down to a new year, it’s expected that the majority of us will plan resolutions and set goals for a healthier, happier 2021.
While COVID-19 is still a public health crisis, it is not the only health crisis that we face. It is still vital that you do not neglect preventative visits, follow-up appointments, necessary tests and vaccines that are crucial in keeping yourself, your family, and your community safe and healthy.
Murfreesboro Medical Clinic continues to focus on the overall health of our patients by providing a safe environment for in-person care and by expanding our telemedicine capabilities for remote care.
Having a primary care doctor right now is more important than ever. I continue to find underlying conditions on a daily basis which, when detected early, are more manageable or even curable. Rather than waiting until a disease progresses to be difficult to control or even life altering, act preemptively.
It is an opportune time for healthy individuals to start seeing a primary care provider (PCP). Having a PCP comes with many benefits, including quick access to customized, high-quality medical care when you need it most and continued support for your ongoing medical issues. Furthermore, you can build a relationship of trust with your PCP, so you can be treated in the most effective way and are not left to make difficult health decisions on your own.
Being established with a PCP also connects you to various specialties when needed. From women’s care to routine preventive screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies, early detection is the key.
Murfreesboro Medical Clinic has a team of skilled physicians who would love to join you on your journey to better health. To schedule an appointment, please visit mmclinic.com or call 615-893-4480.
