    Preventive Medical Services

    Healthy living is the key to a long and happy life. Strategic medical and healthcare decisions should be made before it's too late. At Lajas Medical Group, we offer a full range of preventive services, with flexible scheduling and available transportation for your convenience.

Convenient Preventive Care

Preventive care at your convenience

Your health should be your number one priority. Preventive medical services help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and aid in the early detection of problems and diseases before they get out of hand. This is especially important as we get older.

Getting regular checkups is beneficial, especially when you have mild symptoms that may not seem significant until they worsen into more extreme symptoms. This can be done at the same location, much to your convenience.

At Lajas Medical Group, we offer preventive care services that include checkups, screenings, and patient counseling. Detecting diseases in the early stages allows us to address the appropriate treatments.
