Like the well woman exam, the general physical exam promotes health and early detection of cancer and chronic diseases of all kinds. We at Fayetteville Medical Associates strive to uncover risk factors for stroke and heart attack, osteoporosis, diabetes and arthritis to name just a few of the many chronic medical problems that can be avoided or modified with early detection. Cancer screening is tailored to each individual. In addition to finding and treating medical problems early, the yearly physical exam is an opportunity to address any medical issue that troubles our patients.
We also promote a healthy lifestyle and will assist you with diet and exercise advise, stress relief and assistance with quitting smoking. The physical exam is our best medicine for finding your medical problems while they are treatable and/or curable.
