Routine checkups can find treatable problems early. For many medical problems, early treatment can help prevent more serious complications. The value of checkups and how often you have them depend mainly on your age. Your personal medical history and that of your family are also important. Please read over the handout and let your provider know if you are due for any tests/procedures.

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the American Academy of Family Practice (AAFP) and other medical agencies recommend services specifically for your age group. Visit HealthFinder.gov/MyHealthFinder and take a short, three question quiz. Recommendations vary depending on age, medical history and risk factors. We can discuss how often you should have these or other tests.
