Preventive care is the medical attention you get when you’re healthy to avoid getting illnesses or injuries. The team at Advanced Health Solutions LLC offers physical exams and can help you identify the areas of your health that need improvement.
Comprehensive care encompasses treatments and services for mild or moderate illnesses and injuries. Your family practitioner can diagnose and treat the common cold, the flu, allergies, asthma, minor lacerations and fractures, and more.

Many people mistakenly use the terms ‘family medicine’ and ‘internal medicine’ interchangeably. The two specialties are similar because they both address many aspects of health and include comprehensive care for a wide range of conditions. They also both include preventive care. However, internal medicine focuses solely on adult bodies, while family medicine includes care for children, adolescents, and the elderly.
